Christophe Navarro’s passion for all things printing started at a very young age. After studying prepress, he went on to join a large printing firm in Nice, where he successively took on the roles of copyist, offset editor, scanner operator/colourist and DTP operator. He then had the opportunity to work in the world of editing, a field with which he has been in close contact throughout his career. It was then that he met and entered into a close partnership with Jérôme and Sandrine. Since 2016, he has worked as a freelance graphic designer.
After years as an expat and 20 years spent in Paris mainly focused on the world of cinema, art and the press – including seven years at French daily newspaper Libération – Bérangère Erouart settled down in Bordeaux in 2009. A journalist and editor, she regularly collaborates with the city’s publications and major events, as well as with various digital platforms and national organisations.
A Bordeaux girl through and through, Editor Charlotte Saric, returning to her home town for the first time in some years, took great pleasure in (re)discovering the best places in the city known as La Belle Endormie (Sleeping Beauty). Whether it’s shops, restaurants or cultural sites, her writing is inspired by the city’s riches.

In his powerful photos, he plays subtle games with light and shadows, seemingly bringing time to a standstill.
After studying interior design, Sylvain Norget worked as an interior designer in Nice, Monaco and Paris for over 10 years. Some years later, motivated by new horizons, he decided to settle in Bordeaux, the city of his childhood, and start a new life. Starting as a model, he very quickly moved behind the lens, becoming a professional photographer in 2007. For a year, he alternated between commissions and self-portraits. Since 2008, he has collaborated with a number of magazines.
In 1995, after obtaining her degree in translation at the École d’Interprètes Internationaux, Claire Itani, originally from Nice, went on holiday to London – and it was love at first sight! She settled down there, working at a translation agency before becoming a freelance translator. There is nothing that this meticulous professional doesn’t know about old Blighty. After 21 years of immersion in British culture, her expertise and love of words make Claire a precious asset!
