I can help you make your website more user-friendly, make it easier to navigate and make your customers find what they are looking for, or create an engaging website that will attract potential customers to your products and services.

Over the years, I've seen the Web grow and evolve considerably and stayed ahead by pioneering new web building techniques. I recognize how overwhelming this constantly-changing environment can be, so let me take that burden off your shoulders.

I’ve worked with some well-established companies, such as

I enjoy helping companies and individuals think about their product or business in a new light. Don't wait! Book me for a first consultation, we will make a quick review of where you're at, and start together to plan a more web friendly future for your company.

Work

My Portfolio

I've been working to plan new product approaches to maximize value, architecting, designing, and building user interfaces for a variety of clients such as Phoenix Geophysics LTD, TFO Groupe Média, Barbeque Pro, Access Canada Equipment Corp, Brook Restoration, QuickPlay Media and the City of Toronto.

Selected Sample

Services

The best websites aren’t brochures. Our sites are like your salespeople: dedicated, multi-tasking, and always laser-focused on your bottom line.

Strong Design

Strong design is the core of a strong product. It defines the user experience, the interface and much more. I work to better understand your customers, and design with them always in mind using my breadth of expertise.

Good development

Good development is the key to reduce your customer’s frustration by providing a solid and trustable interface. I use the best tools and practices available for any product to produce nothing less than the highest quality results.

Approach

There is no set process I use for every client. Every client is different and deserves a specific process tailored to their needs.
That said, I do have a few overarching ideas that I believe in.

  1. Design is about the user and the content. My clients are important, but their customers even more so they are the ones that will ultimately be interacting with what I produce. I work to understand the interaction between user and content. Great design is at the intersection of both.
  2. I like to work on complete products; it’s difficult to design or develop around just one small part of a larger product unless I understand the big picture. A strong user experience is defined with a holistic understanding of the product.
  3. Plan, Craft, Iterate. After the user, product, and content research that amassed knowledge is applied to my final work. We’ll work together to craft an excellent user experience and then iterate until its just right.

I'm always looking to work with awesome companies, agencies, and investors. If you have a project in mind, let’s talk! I'd love to be partners on your next endeavor.
Book me for a first consultation and let's start together to plan a more web friendly future for your company.

Sane2

Sane2 is a famous graffiti artist from Normandy, France. I met him 10 years ago when I was involved in Aero graffiti artist community, and we became close friends sharing the same view about street art and lifestyle.

After the release of Aero.fr, he challenged me to revamp his website : he needed a more easy-to-update website, with the possibility of expansion.

The challenge was to develop a responsive website, adapted to any screens from desktop to mobile browsers.
