He then discovered the world of communication agencies in Paris, and designed many solutions for digital services companies, before getting a taste of the cardiovascular management domain. Raphaël then became an expert consultant and UX teacher for student engineers, and eventually embraced the realm of geoscience and new energy at SLB where he is now a Lead UX Strategist working at global level. Alongside his professional career he lived a 15 year-long journey writing, composing and producing an award winning fantastic musical.
His passion for crafting meaningful experiences is rooted in childhood memories, when he was designing spaceship dashboards with his brothers in his grandparents attic.
When designing complex systems, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task and feel uncertain about the best approach.
Yet, the difficulty of designing a system that takes users on a seamless and meaningful journey might be similar to that of writing a story that takes an audience on a beautiful and memorable voyage.
In this talk, Raphael will introduce an unconventional approach to crafting complex experiences, drawing inspiration from the art of storytelling.
To illustrate this approach, he will share insights from two multi-year projects he's led: A sophisticated mass-data interpretation system for geoscientists, and an acclaimed musical which has won accolades for its innovative storytelling.
Join Raphael as he explores the parallels between designing complex systems and crafting compelling narratives. Discover how adopting a story-driven approach can unlock new possibilities and lead to remarkable outcomes in the realm of user experience design.
