Hello, I'm Stéphanie
I support teams to design accessible and elegant products that meet user needs and business goals. My key strengths lie in product strategy, problem-solving, interaction design, and web accessibility.
I take care of building cohesive design through a wide range of skills - from print, art direction, photography to UX design. As a multidisciplinary designer, I effortlessly navigate among cross-functional teams to solve complex design problems.
While preparing the IAAP certification, I'm currently helping a non-profit to comply with WCAG 2.0 standards. The upcoming case studies will present my journey optimizing the website to meet accessibility standards.

I have 15 years of experience working on the end-to-end design process, from research and strategy, through to the execution, launch. I improve products based on people's feedback and data collection. My key strenghts are:
Are you looking to improve your website or app? I like to start to analyze your business goals, study your competitors, do a UX audit, usability testings, and build user journeys. I need to understand what and where the pain points are before trying to solve them. Yes, I like to challenge assumptions!
I design elegant and intuitive user-centric products for desktop and mobile. I use iterative design to create or refine a product. I collaborate on the information architecture and develop interactive prototypes. I also prepare design systems to communicate with product teams.
I am passionate about understanding the users I'm designing for, and I continually strive to incorporate accessible components into my work to ensure that all users can benefit from inclusive design. I also conduct accessible audits and design reviews from early to pre-prod stages.
A11Y Toolbox is a blog I created to demystify the WCAG standard guidelines and help designers and non-designers be more aware of accessible design stakes and benefits.

Blush is a web tool and plugin to create stunning illustrations. I felt in love with the project, so when the cofounder, Pablo Stanley, was looking for a French translator, I offered my help :-)
