Meet the Judges: Élisabeth Cohat
She was in charge of developing numerous collections such as Mes premieres Decouvertes (My First Discoveries) and Decouverte Gallimard (Discovery Gallimard), and took part in the creation of innovative concepts across several departments.
Élisabeth was promoted to graphic designer of Guides Gallimard upon its creation in 1990, and assumed her current title of art director for Gallimard Jeunesse in 1999.
What Élisabeth will be looking for:
Does the artwork answer the objective?
Is it understandable without any text?
How well is the originality expressed?
Is the point of view of the subject matter suitable?
Is the technical approach fitting?
Does it touch me?
These are the questions that I'll ask myself for a winning entry.
