I had the chance to take on multiple roles in the design field. While I spent years doing webdesign, now I’m more interested in user experience.
Few companies value the power of design and I often have to pave the way to find the right workflow within the team. It is always a different challenge, one I’m always ready to tackle.
Less is more
You recognize good design when nothing cannot be removed anymore.
People shouldn’t need a manual to understand what you want to communicate.
Don’t aim for perfect, ship fast, get feedback, react.
Don’t make people waste time on your website or they’ll never come back.
Design should not attempt to manipulate people with fake promises. It should be useful.
Beauty is part of usefulness, as good design influences our person and well-being.

As a musician, I always found difficult to find people to play with. So I started this side project. The site is now closed but, at the time, it allowed me to practice my Ruby on rails skill while still doing mostly design during my day job.
This is a Ember SPA built to locate the closest collective taxi points in Brussels. Back then you had to search though a pdf provided by the city. So we created an app for that!
I was first hired as a Ruby on rails web integrator but they liked design suggestions I kept making, so they started giving me design projects as well.
As a board member, I was tasked to redefine the communication strategy and branding for the association. I started with the personnas, then redesigned and coded the whole website again.
I was first hired as a designer / front-end developer but my role evolved to work on the full stack (Front-end/Backend/Ux)
