Daft Wiki

Cédric Hervet is one of the Daft Arts crew and is regularly used as Daft Punk's creative director. He has worked closely with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo for more than 15 years, both on their solo careers and as a duo. Hervet has helped shape their image and visuals, along with other collaborators, by designing Daft Punk’s album covers, creative direction, and art direction for the Random Access Memories album, even co-producing their third album Human After All. Hervet is also credited for making the cover art of various EPs from the label Crydamoure, owned by De Homem-Christo. He co-wrote and co-produced Interstella 5555 and co-wrote and edited Daft Punk's Electroma.

He is heavily influenced by craftsmanship - furniture, wood, and leather. Aside from creative directing, Hervet, along with his cousin Nicolas Hervet (who has received repeated honors in woodworking, marquetry, and sculpture) have been designing furniture and unique objects for years, and in 2014 they formed the Hervet Manufacturier company.[1] Some promotional images were photographed by Bangalter[2]

Recently, Hervet directed a music video for "The Writing of Fragments of Time"[3] and was in charge of the layout of the artwork for Bangalter's solo orchestral album "Mythologies"[4]
