Hi! Nice to meet you, I'm Julien.

I'm a Paris based UI designer, crafting and building great user experiences for 12+ years.

My main areas of focus are User Interface Design, Design System and Front-End Development.

As a designer, I believe great products are simple and intuitive and don't need a week of training.

I believe great products are consistent and should follow standards and patterns wherever possible but should also break those patterns when needed.

I believe great products caters to the user's needs and the best way to do it is by listening to users, gather their feedback and analyze data.

Beyond work, I enjoy traveling and getting lost in a city I don't know. I found that it's the best way to explore and appreciate a new place and taste a new culture.

I'm a photography enthusiast and take my camera whenever I can to shoot architecture, landscape, nature or sometimes music shows.

I love pixel perfect, dogs, street art, caïpirinhas, the Eiffel Tower, Sigur Rós.

I hate coriander, cats, loud talkers, being late, smokers.
