Dominique Deriaz

Founding Partner

Dominique is one of three partners of AREA 17. She joined the agency in 2004 as a project manager and information architect. After working in the New York studio for two years, Dominique led the opening of the Paris studio in 2006. As with all partners, she is hands-on with clients, working as creative director or account director on client engagements.

Dominique has worked in digital since 1999, leading projects for international brands such as Longchamp, S.T. Dupont, Veuve Clicquot and Polo Ralph Lauren. She holds two Master's degrees in law and communications, studying in Paris, London and Madrid. Although never put into direct practice, her legal education has been instrumental in shaping her methodical approach to the creative process.

A Paris native, you are likely to spot Dominique sitting at a café having an ‘apero’ with friends. In spite of being a city girl, she loves nature and pretends she could live in the countryside (nobody believes her).
