Design, Speaker & Connector.
I am a french designer living in Lausanne, Switzerland.
For 14 years, I've been collecting experiences in different advertising & media agencies, working for brands and as a freelance designer.
I currently work as Art Director of Wax, a Swiss UX & branding agency, where I lead the design team, crafting fresh experiences for international brands. I also run 17slash, a design union & research lab where we love to work & experiment on typography, grids, interactive & connected devices.
I am the core team member of CreativeMornings Geneva, monthly events gathering creative thinkers in Switzerland. I've also helped to organize UXRomandie, the IxDA local chapter, and co-founded UX Lausanne, the biggest conference about user experience in the country. I’ve also been the French ambassador of the Behance creative network and I’ve organized the Behance Portfolio Reviews in Geneva.

We need to have a discussion about how effective we are, not how efficient we are.
Once you start measuring something it very quickly becomes all you see. What you measure defines what you value. If you look at any company look at what they measure and you can instantly tell the kind of culture they are.

Fabian Pfortmüller Holstee, Design with a Conscience
It’s more important you do work that’s important, than you do work that’s pretty.
Create an environment where it's not only safe to fail, but required to fail.
Reflect credit but embrace blame.
I'm rebelling against the idea of a city that is dull and grey. I'm rebelling against the idea of experiencing the city through the shut windows of a car stuck in traffic. I'm rebelling against the idea of just working every day just to pay my rent.
I use the city as a canvas to create events and situations that generate powerful experiences for people.
