Remy Dubibe spent some time with us at House of Coco to tell us more about life as an artist…
When did you launch the brand and what was the reason behind it?
I did launch my brand by end of 2012 as a normal continuation of my researches and studies
Whats your background?
I started with a 3 years intensive course in an art school in France (Brevet de Technicien en Arts Appliqués- Lycée de Sèvres 92310 SEVRES FRANCE ) and continued with a BA(HON) Ceramic Design Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design.
How many people are involved in the company and what are their roles?
I work on my own as a designer maker, I embody my desires, create and make to share a story and memories…
I need to feel active, learning in my work and acquire knowledge therefore I constantly research and sketch as I like to see an evolution in everything.
If you could start over with the business, would you do anything differently?
To be more business minded in sales and promotion while continuing to study new skills as deep as possible (wood, metal works, ceramics…)
What is the hardest challenge you have faced since you started the company?
The business and sale side of it as I am unfortunately a computer “retarded”
Tell us one fact about you that people wouldn’t know?
May be the fact that I like to be constantly challenged.
2015 is here, where do you plan on taking the brand?
I would like to be more established, more comfortable about pricing, selling, promoting myself and be able to exhibit in galleries. I would also be really keen in collaborating with other artists and designers.
To date, what has been the highlight since launching?
One of the highlight since launching has been the recent invitation to exhibit at gallery fifty five
High Street Hartley Wintney Hook, Hampshire RG27 8NY and of course all the amazing and interesting people I have met.
What is the one product you would recommend from your range for Valentines day?
All of them!!!
In future, how do you plan on expanding the company?
In future I would like to improve the communication of my brand, develop my business on stronger basis
Where can people find out more?
