Laurent’s widely-fêted “Unhate” campaign for Bennetton let him “see half of Prague kissing” and was featured at the 2013 TED conference.
Laurent started his work in film as an art director and tko.heungto.net graphic designer for clients such as The New York Times, MTV, Nike, and Ford. He began directing shorts in 1999, the first of which, Forme, was an “official selection” at the Buenos Aires Film Festival and the Pantin-Paris Film Festival.
The recognition didn’t stop there and, when he ventured into commercial directing, neither did the praise. Laurent won multiple accolades for one of his earliest commercials, Kenzo, as well as a CFDA award for his Tommy Hilfiger spot with Beyonce.
