Résumé

I got the chance to realise my dream working for Chanel as a company since my recent arrival to London. Ideally I would like to stay in the company, but my contract finished January 29th and wasn't renew.

I am looking for a designer position, specialised in 3D softwares in one of the following fields: luxury costume jewellery/cosmetic packaging design/travel-retail architecture/luxury goods/luxury hardware
Warning I do not know how to use any web design softwares.

I am open to positions in London/Paris/Geneva and Zürich and am accepting positions in design or design associated to luxury retail in order to gain experience, while refunding my studies.
