I am Dorian, an industrial designer based in Lyon, France. I consider that the first thing I have to do as a designer is to answer peoples’s questions.That‘s why I want the products I create to have positive impact on people’s lives.

Philosophy

What is design for me ?

I believe above all in human-centred design, which is necessary and as impactful as possible. That's why, through each project I work on, I strive to tell a unique story.
I believe every product has to be as unvasive as possible. This is why I include an ecological approach in all my projects, focusing only on the essential. No superfluous. Every gram of plastic has to be taken into account and has to be perfectly useful for the user.
Finally, I think good design is timeless, first and foremost centered on the human being. No details, even tiny, are superflous.

Process

How I work ?

I use a stretegic design process to understand, define and deliver the best product I can, including ecological concerned and emotions. That’s why, I use all the necessary skills I have, From strategic or marketing tools to design tools. I believe a good designer is not only able to produce beautifuls product but products that take place in today’s society, including brands concerned.

01.  Understand

The first step is to understand the needs and constraints of a project. By analysing the brief and meeting the targets, I first answer all the questions necessary for the smooth running of a project. Once these questions have been answered, and the market understood, I can create.

Needs Mapping
Targets Interview

02. Explore

Once all the questions are clarified, and the needs are understood, it is time to move on to the creative phase. At the heart of my process, I am meticulous and know how to produce both quantity and quality. What is important in this phase? To meet the various needs expressed as best as possible.

03. Define

When a solution seems viable, I then take the time to define it more precisely. Structurally or formally, I strive to refine the product so that it meets the needs even more effectively. Choice of materials, colours, precision of shapes, work on details are all necessary steps to achieve an efficient product, and above all one that is correctly positioned on its market.

Materials choice
Functionnal architecture

04. Deliver

Finally, this is the deliverable phase. This is when I deliver the most advanced visualization of the product as well as the files ready to be sent to the design offices. Both technically and organisationally, this is a particularly important phase, as it closes the project. Nevertheless, I continue to make the product tangible by accompanying the engineers but also the marketing teams in order to produce visuals that will dazzle future customers

Skills

01. Industrial Design

Analysing needs to design the most successful products is the core of my skills, and this is what I was able to study for 5 years.

Understanding companies' needs and perfecting their strategy is one of the keys to product success. As the projects progress, I develop and improve my strategic skills in order to be able to meet expectations.

About me 

Who Am I ?

I have a master's degree in design and innovation management from l’Ecole De Design Nantes Atlantiques (France) in work-linked training.
I’m currently working at Design Office, a Lyon based agency that works for big clients from all around the world.   Sensitive, dynamic and curious, I know how to put all my skills to good use in the realization of innovative projects.   Nevertheless, I also know how to put my skills at the service of a group and get the best out of everyone.

The others things I love ?   I am interested in new technologies, and their impact on our daily lives. I believe that if many of them are useful, they should be as uninvasive as possible. Besides that, I like music, mountains, motor sports, and of course, my girlfriend and my dog !
