Hi! My name is Romain. I’m a senior UI/UX Designer living in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2013, I received a BA in visual communication from ECAL & in 2017, I earned a MAS in design research for digital innovation from the EPFL+ECAL Lab.

I believe that design should be intuitive & revolve around the user. To strengthen this, I learned inclusive design methodologies at the RCA & honed my skills in icon design at the University of Bournemouth. For the latter, I manipulated icons’ aesthetics to evaluate their effect on perceived usability. Many of my projects deal with notions of big data, data visualization & search algorithms. These play a large role in my research work, where I explore navigation principles & aggregation of content in mass information environments. Currently, I’m working on a major social network system for elderly people.

I am methodical, logical, detail-oriented & a bit of a perfectionist. For my BA thesis, I explored the omnipresence of the grid in our daily visual landscapes. After that, I worked as a graphic designer at ECAL for its communication platform as well as a freelancer for other organisations. I also co-founded a workshop that specializes in graphic design for unique mediums as well as a design collective for conceptual ideas. Today, I work in a research lab where I confront my point of view with engineers & psychologists.

Graphical analysis of the evolution of characters from the TV show Breaking Bad over the series compared to their physical movements.

The more characters who are friendly – represented with green – move away from their habitat, the more their intentions become evil; and vice versa for the malicious characters, represented with red. Overleaf, a graphic binds all the characters with a gradient qualifier, from the most harmless to the most violent. The poster folds out like a road map that follows the movements and changes throughout the seasons. In addition, the brochure is designed in such a way that causes GOOD and BAD to confront each other head on.
