Work Experience

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 a creative director. My role consisted of take part in workshops, generate concepts through sketches, develop in CAD, build rigs, make feedback reports on prototypes, exchange 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 which is present around the world. Qilive is specialized in multimedia, IT products, sound & displays and domestic appliances.
As the first product designer there, my mission was to develop the brand by creating a DNA through the design. One part of my job was to control the sourcing of the products which supply the different ranges working closely with the China office. The other part of my job was to design from scratch and develop new products together with product managers when a market opportunity was identified. We achieved some projects today in stores. This challenge has provided me the keys of the product development and processes in the reality of the market.

GRO Design

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 was my everyday life. I had the chance during my time at GRO to work on products which are strong today on the market and this was for me a fantastic experience to start to grow as a designer.
