After graduating in 2014, I spent a lot of time sending applications to companies that sometimes did not reply. I was frustrated and a bit hopeless. I was thinking to change something on my applications and remembered IKEA Russia promoting its new catalogue on Instagram.
How could I develop my personal brand and promote myself on Instagram? And an idea popped up in my mind…
On each board I “told my story” by depicting my environment, who I am creatively what I am passionate about; mountains, nature, skiing, cycling, running competition/challenges and sports in general.
On there, I featured myself, my professional aspirations, my skills, my career path, my hobbies and what inspires me as a sports lover (from the emotion procured towards sports marketing)
It represents a glimpse of what made who I am today, a taste of who is Florent Thion.
This project has come out only in 2017 just because I got hired in 2015 before it turned officially online. For now, I updated some boards but the main idea remains the same.
I made use of the tagging features to let the visitors travelling toward the different boards by clicking on the loupes and visiting each board.
All in all, I drew 24 boards, created 24 new email addresses and established 24 new Instagram accounts allocated to @AJob4FloThion! That constitutes a huge amount of work from the first reflection on what would feature me the most to splitting each board into squares of 612×612 pixels !!
