Hi, I'm Mathieu!
After graduating from L’École de design Nantes Atlantique (France, 2015) I started to work at Pezy Group (Amsterdam) where I developed a solid foundation in Industrial Design. Working for international companies as well as startups, I got involved in a wide variety of projects, from consumer electronics to connected medical devices and branding.
Along with this experience, my particular affinity for UI/UX design made me take a more holistic approach, integrating physical products to their digital environment. This also let me be part of multidisciplinary teams from which I learned a lot.
To widen my creative lens, I then joined Safran Cabin to look at the strategic value of design, designing in the context of a large organization in a complex aviation ecosystem. Thanks to this last experience, I am now able to put problems in the right business and user context to tackle complex challenges.
Overall, I aim for the simplicity beyond the complexity through elegant and engaging product/system solutions, using various visualization tools and methodologies. Finally, I find inspiration for my projects in the craftsmanship and in the stories I read.
