Alice Kunisué would struggle to fit director, photographer, illustrator, photographer, painter, animator, and art director on a business card, but they all contribute to a vibrant career that's now brought her to Friend London.
Their Head of Sales, Ailie Robertson, says: "I've honestly been obsessed with Alice since I first watched her films, but when we finally met it was game over. What resonated with us all so much was Alice's self-effacing, utterly original and joyful character that just sings through her work, as that's who she is."
Robertson also calls Kunisué "a rare gem of an artist and person", and says Friend are "honoured to have her on board." Summer's off to a good start at Friend HQ, but what does the French-Japanese director have to say about her new abode?
"Meeting everyone at Friend was like finding a pod of dolphins in the middle of the ocean: magical and exhilarating! I instantly wanted to swim along with them and join their vibrant and playful energy," says the multi-talented Kunisué, "and I'm so happy to embark on this journey together."
