Hello, I'm Stéphanie Lespérance
There’s no good design that isn't accessible - that what I learned from my experience when I moved to a new country. As a continuous learner, I've specialized in Web Accessibility to build elegant inclusive products or services.
With over 15 years of experience, I use both research and creative thinking to develop design strategies that meet business goals and user needs.
I have 15 years of experience delivering successful cross-media projects for various industries (Hardware Security, Real Estate, High End Fashion, Tourism, or Lifestyle), oftentimes from the ground up to the final products and services. I specialize in:
I run competitive analysis, use competitor products and usability testing data to dive deep into real problems users have. This process allows me to look for opportunities to offer something better, fresher to users that align with the business vision.
I use iterative design based on data and feedback to create or refine products or services. I also collaborate with dev teams to deliver design specifications: user flows, interactive prototypes, or design systems.
I am passionate about understanding the users I'm designing for, and I continually strive to incorporate accessible components into my work. I also enjoy sharing my insights with others to improve the output across products.
