I got my background education in Politics Philosophy and Economics at the university of Kent that I refined during a Master in Communication and Strategy at Sciences-po Lille. From there I got the ability to critically assess, summarize and write on any subject.
Later on, while working for M&CSaatchi.Gad, I had the opportunity to conduct extensive analysis on different markets such as the automotive industry, kidswear, social networks.
I Also took part in a 3-week summer school on Social Data Science at Copenhagen University. There I learned how to mine, clean and analyse large dataframe using R.
As part of a summer school in Social Data Science, we designed an algorythm to try to predict football players value using R and scrapping data from the web.
At M&CSaatchi.GAD, my team and I have created an extensive workbook on the high-end gastronomy for Nespresso Teams. This experience gave me new insights on how to convey best practices and guidelines and how to empower people via internal communication material. The project was awarded a "best internal marketing project" prize in 2015.
As a freelancer, I worked with ACE, a consulting firm to produce an analysis of the evolution of parenthood in France for the PEEP (one of the two biggest parental associations in France). We gathered data from multiple sources (experts, desk research and qualitative interview) and delivered a comprehensive guide to help them communicate with their ever evolving audience.
I am particularly excited by imagination and creation and I am always looking for new ways to devise new ideas. This led me to a design thinking workshop at HPI Postdam as well as a to a strategic design workshop in Aarhus. As a result, in my jobs, I use these methods to facilitate brainstorming and decision making in the team. I am familiar with design thinking tools such as persona, user journey and empathy maps.
I really enjoy to bring ideas alive, may that be alone or with a team, by managing the project or by creating new products, from drawing to user testing.
To complete my skills in prototyping, I chose to enroll in Production Technology at KEA where I studied product development, industrial drawing and computer assisted drawing with solidworks and fusion360. I also had the opportunity to improve my skills in Photography, Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
During my stay at Copenhagen, I got involved in Biologaragen, a citizen science project promoting DIY science and experiments. I redesigned their graphic identity. Find out more here.
As a project assistant at Visual Drugstore, I created and realised a ten meter sculpture in polysterene for P1 sommerfest in Munich. Watch it here
For our first semester project at Copenhagen School of Design and Technology, we decided to come up with a toy that provides a solution to a specific problem: the lack of interactions with nature for children born in the digital age. Here is the result. .
I am lucky to be extrovert and sociable, so presenting the works of my team comes naturally for me. I had the chance to be paid to do it both at FbF and M&CSaatchi.GAD. I even gave a few lectures in design and behavioral economics (two of my strong interests) at ISCOM, a communication school in Paris. You can check them if you speak french (which I do, I can also speak German and Spanish with a very French accent).
