About me

Born March 16th, 1983
Living in Lyon, France

I’m Maxence Bürgel aka Nexam.

With almost 5 years of experiences as graphic designer and a self-taught temperament,
I had the opportunity to work on projects that allowed me to open my areas of expertises and my artistic sensibility.

I currently work as freelance concept artist and illustrator in the domain of video games and i’m also Educator at Bellecour école d’art where I teach Photoshop & Concept Art techniques.  I intend to bring this passion and my skills at your service.


I created Ratel-Studio with four associates. Our goal is to offer fun and convivial video games with exceptional design.

Our first project is "Onima", a multiplayer plateform game in a persistent world.
I worked as art director on this project, I also made the graphic engine and the music you can hear on the youtube channel.

You can have more informations about the game by listening to our video presentation
