our story
2019
New visual identity
Reciproque is transforming its visual communications with a new logotype, a new graphic charter and a new website. The most challenging project to take on is always your own. Indeed, it took us over a year to complete!
2018
Tenth employee
We have hired our tenth permanent employee, but, in total, Reciproque has signed contracts with 50 professionals since it began operations. This does not included the freelancers and subcontractors with whom we collaborate daily.
2008
New head office
We moved into our new offices, a former bakery and former sculpture studio in Paris’s 11th arrondissement, featuring a paved interior courtyard with gardens. No more coworking or working out of François’ living room.
2006
Creation of the firm
Reciproque was founded as a limited liability company in September in order to offer multimedia engineering consulting services to museums. At the time, we felt as though we had invented a new profession. We nearly called ourselves PsycOOp or Lucarne.
2004
Quai Branly project
François and Stéphane met while working on a multimedia project for the Musée du Quai Branly. As part of the project management process, they held more than 1,000 meetings to monitor the content production and operations for the project until its inauguration.
