Hi! My name is Romain. I’m Art Director & 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 design research lab where I confront my point of view with engineers & psychologists.








This poster is a collection of experiences and highlights gained over almost 10 years of journeys to, and love for, London. Beyond just a qualitative appreciation, quantitative data were collected during numerous trips. They were kept as computer files, as old photos with captions, as time dated receipts, museum tickets and restaurant cards…

Everything was sorted and listed into 3 categories: trips with family, with friends and with a girlfriend. They are supplemented with statistical inputs that enrich the issues related to budget, time and distance. The graph functions as a catalyst, with its entry, its processing of data, and its conclusion. The whole work presents the 4 kinds of simultaneous appreciations that show the similarities and differences between the activities.
