Hello, I'm Stéphanie
I support teams to design accessible products and services, supporting user goals first and business goals second. My key strengths lie in product strategy, problem-solving, and user experience design.
There’s no good design that isn’t accessible. I view accessibility as a constraint that allows for more creativity, not less. Web accessibility is the expertise I'm seeking to develop.
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, conduct 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 user-centric products for desktop and mobile. I use iterative design to create or refine a product or a service. 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 growing blog where I share hand-curated accessibility resources. The website is based on WordPress with a custom Bootstrap theme. It helps me to keep my HTML/CSS skills up to date.

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 :-)
