SeymourPowell

Industrial Designer

By taking part in the daily life of Seymourpowell as a product designer I was involved at all the different stages of the design process on my own projects or group projects supervised by the creative director. My role consisted of to attend workshops, generate concepts through sketches, refine in CAD, build rigs, make feedback reports on prototypes, deal with manufacturers and make presentations. I had the opportunity to work on various projects for the most renowned brands in the consumer products world. My experience at one of the elite design consultancies allowed me to gain maturity in my design thinking.

Qilive (Auchan Group)

Industrial Designer Consultant

Qilive is a young brand part of Auchan group, one of the biggest retail company in France and present around the world. Qilive provides multimedia, IT, sound & displays and home appliances products. As the first industrial designer, my mission was to develop the brand by creating a DNA through the design. One part of my job consisted of to control the products' sourcing supplying the different ranges working closely with the China office. The other part of my job whilst a market opportunity was identified, was to design from scratch new products. I was then in charge to follow the development. We achieved some projects which are today in stores. That experience has provided me the keys of the product development and the processes in a tough reality of the business.

GRO Design

Industrial Designer

GRO Design is a value innovation agency dedicated to designing products with personality & soul. My role as a junior designer was to get involved on projects working in a small and friendly team guided by the partners. Attend creative workshops with the colleagues and clients, sketch some ideas and CAD them up, refine the concepts and make presentations were the tasks that I was given. I had the chance during my time at GRO to work on products that are now the best sellers on the market. It was for me a fantastic experience to start to learn and grow as a designer.
