Michèle Champagne est une graphiste qui circule entre la recherche, la direction artistique et le design d’édition à travers les médias. Sa recherche intérroge la psychologie positive, l’esprit anti-critique, la mesure du bonheur, et leurs phénomènes communicatifs. Elle travaille la publication comme une conversation publique, et elle dérive les arcanes de la création open source, la rédaction collaborative et la participation des lecteurs. Elle crée des magazines, des journaux, des rapports annuels, des sites web, des réseaux sociaux, des forums de discussion, et des couvertures de livres numériques.

Après une maîtrise au Sandberg Instituut à Amsterdam en 2011, Michèle est reconnue pour ses collaborations avec Artexte, Droog, Mediamatic Foundation, Metahaven, Penguin Random House Canada, Strelka Institute et VPRO, un difusseur public néerlandais. Elle écrit pour la revue Back Office à Paris, le magazine Volume à Amsterdam, et la revue The Gradient par Walker Art Centre à Minneapolis.

Michèle Champagne is a graphic designer who moves between research, creative direction, and publication design across media. Her research questions positive psychology, anti-criticism culture, happiness measurement, and their communication phenomena. She works with publication as a public conversation, and she meanders open source dynamics, collaborative authorship, and reader participation. She creates magazines, newspapers, annual reports, websites, social networks, discussion forums, and e-book covers.

After a Master of Design at Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, in 2011, Michèle is recognized for her collaborations with Artexte, Droog, Mediamatic Foundation, Metahaven, Penguin Random House Canada, Strelka Institute, and VPRO, a Dutch public broadcaster. She writes for Back Office journal in Paris, Volume magazine in Amsterdam, and The Gradient journal by Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis.
