Hello, I'm Stéphanie.
I'm an Art Director, Product Designer & accessibility advocate.

I develop design solutions that meet business goals and user needs by combining product strategy, user experience and creative thinking. 

I currently collaborate with a startup in the publishing industry, where I have the rare opportunity to combine my passion for digital and literature.

To help designers grow accessible design solutions, I share hand-curated resources on AY11-Toolbox. I currenlty live in Seattle, WA and I am a Door Hunter in my spare time.


I have 15 years of experience delivering successful B2B projects for a wide breadth of industries, oftentimes from the ground up to the final products. I have a passion for creating experiences that will improve users' lives and approach every problematic with an open and curious mind. I specialize in:


Product Strategy

I perform competitive analysis, audits, and usability tests to empathize with final users. These steps are essential to analyze paint points and recommend design solutions that will align with your business vision.


Product Design

I create consistent, clear and effective designs. I use iterative design based on qualitative and quantitave data to create or refine products. 


Web Accessibility

I'll always advocate teams to take the extra time to delight all your users. Accessibility is not a bolt-on extra feature. Everyone needs, or will need, accommodation sometimes.

Blush home in French

UX copy for localization

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 :-)
