Cooked in Montreuil

Design and development of the website of a French organic food service for kids.

Cooked in Montreuil is a French company which aim is to provide organic food for babies in creches and essentially in the city of Montreuil.

I designed a rounded logotype and a playful identity their website. The flashy but natural colors give the whole a playful flavour, and above all, a not so serious feeling.

I also created a series of icons which they fell in love with. I incorporated it in a dingbats font, which allows the company to compose its own charts with the keyboard. The illustrations of the website can thus be updated as they want.

Development: HTML, PHP (WordPress), CSS, jQuery

 

Vlisco

A new wavy website for the Dutch specialist of wax fabrics.

Vlisco is one of the biggest designer and producer of wax fabrics. Based in The Netherlands, their most important market is in Africa. Often copied, their main difference resides in the quality of their fabrics and their ancestral printing process.
They needed a brand new mobile friendly website which could show their specificities but also boost the sales.

 

As lead of the UX and art direction, I decided to focus on trying to show the beauty and details of their fabrics the best way possible on a digital device. For that, we used different interactions, in order to see the fabric as an object (mobile, interactive, 3d) and not as a static image (static, flat and rigid).
 
The main idea was to interact with the fabric as much as possible and to make it become the most central actor of the website of Vlisco. This simple rule was applied: anytime a fabric would display on the page, it should always be possible to buy it or see the other pages where it would also display.

Contextualised Information

Computed laid out book to archive and critic online rumors.

This project is a research about online journalism, rumors spreading and fake informations through new media and Internet. With the internet, a lot of fake information are now spread every seconds. The analysis of those rumors make us understand that for the majority, they are based on assumptions, predjudices and mental models.

How can we save and encapsulate fake information from the web as they are viral and then demonstrate that they are often quickly modified? How can we trace them? How can we raise the awareness of people about this topic?

Contextualised Information is a hybrid publication. It proposes a time real archive of hoaxes and rumors spread online and a critic on the question, by comparing 3 different points of view for each headline: the media spreading the news itself, the reactions of people on Twitter, and the analysis of a specialist (sociologist, philosopher, writer).

The rumors are sorted by categories: Political field, Economics and Technology, Miscellaneous and People.

A series of scripts records the data from different web sources, tracked with the realtime hoax debunker emergent.info and puts the data in a chronological order and in the appropriate part of the book with a series of Python scripts.
The layout is computed and automated to make the publication really easy and fast to produce.
The design of the book was realized in HTML and CSS and the book was exported with Prince XML.

In this book, the last 3 months of rumors are encapsulated. Between each of the thematic parts, quotations from texts of famous authors and specialists of rumors are shown.

Three different indexes are generated automatically and allow the reader to navigate the book differently, but also to have a different analysis of the rumors.

The books are exported as a PDF file, which can be downloaded, printed on demand or read on a tablet.

This was made with the help of Mathieu Allard for the use of scripts written in Python.
The project is still in developement. https://github.com/LenaRobin/diplome

Hands-up! studio

Publication and branding for Hands-up! design studio.

As I was interning at Hands-up! studio, I designed and created the branding of the company. I designed the identity, showcase-publication and business cards.
 
The choice was to use a very straightforward and bold design, but at the same time put the emphasis on distinctive and qualitative print details. This goes in adequation with their taste for nice printed objects.
