What is a Product Designer?

In the tech industry, a Product Designer is capable of various forms of design, he must be an Interaction designer, a visual designer, a motion Designer, coherent in user researchers and Business Strategists but most of all he is an ideas man.

My main role as a product designer is to imagine digital products and express them in the best conceivable way, understanding how best to illustrate for a successful the written pitch, presentation or team briefing. When conceiving ideas a technical understanding of the development process is essential, it’s one thing to think of an idea it’s another to know if it is even possible. I come from a networking and design background which inherently helps with the imagination and criticism of product design.

How do I create

At the moment most designers are still creating static mockups to communicate app ideas but increasingly clients are finding this more difficult to understand as apps are anything but static wireframes and user journeys. They are all about movement, this is why I practice fluid low and high fidelity prototype design. When mixing Axure, Principle, Flinto and Facebook’s Origami Studio you can create prototypes that convey the flow of your app, page, idea or micro interaction. These apps can be used for app development, prototyping, motion graphics and video production.

He always has a creative, positive outlook and he has been an invaluable resource for our team. I really enjoyed working with him. I would recommend Stéphane anytime.``

Olivier Rigault Head of Mobile

``Stéphane is not just a normal UX designer. He understands high level requirements which he brings to life with very detailed wireframes. He has a passion for developing products and he goes above and beyond on what is required to ensure his work is understood by various stakeholders across the business. He is very friendly and I'm glad I had the chance to work with him on the Quidco app.``

Jonida Dule Project Manager

``When I interviewed and later hired Stéphane for UX lead on All Things Hair, I knew there was much more than skill he offered. He was hungry to experiment, explore and advance UX opportunities and processes beyond the status quo. Once on board our highly ambitious global site build project, Stéphane brought an incredibly high energy to the team through meticulous exploration and best-in-class innovation.``
