Everything we do is driven by the needs and dreams of real people. Some agencies might call them clients. We like to think of them as people. We position brands and architect communication plans with someone in mind — a young student overwhelmed by her college options, or an arts enthusiast seeking alternatives to mainstream society's definitions of beauty. It takes more than great design to make a design agency successful. It takes a stubborn desire to do justice to your cause.
Since 2000, DISTINC_ has attracted bright, engaged, restless individuals. It takes an unconventional team to deliver unconventional work.
Durviaux has an idealistic approach to branding and marketing. He has a strong belief that design not only plays an integral part in today’s business but also an important role in society. He is convinced that good design can change behavior and has contributed his expertise to numerous organizations in education, medical research, culture, and the arts.
Since 2000, Jean-Marc has guided the DISTINC_ team getting immersed in institutions' unique contexts. He has helped the agency build an impeccable track record at capturing the essence of brands, positioning them for success, and architecting game-changing communications strategies to raise awareness, participation, and most importantly to raise much-needed funds.
Jean-Marc’s work in design and advertising has been honored by the Creative Club of Belgium, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, the Type Directors Club of New York, the Society of Publication Designers, the British Photography Academy, Print magazine, Communications Arts, and Rotovision publishing.
