Biography

Groupama, Ericsson, Banque Populaire, Foncia, PRB or Sodebo are some of sailing’s most involved sponsors. What do they have in common? When they want their boats to look good, and their logos featured at the right place, they contact Jean-Baptiste Epron.

Aged 50, and living between Paris and Britanny, the artists’ designs can be seen everywhere. He knows better than anyone where to put a logo, what color to use, what mistakes to avoid… He is regularly involved in the world’s biggest races such as the America’s Cup or the Volvo Ocean Race.
