Hi. I'm Paul, a French-born Digital Designer crafting apps and systems in London, UK. Currently Product Designer at V7.
UI Kit is a pixel-perfect Figma design system made for complex products. It gathers carefully crafted classic components such as buttons, dropdowns or text fields as well as more technical components such as tree viewers, rich text editors and complex tables.
Most of the already existing ones stick to atomic components and don't go beyond. The concept behind UI Kit was to make a UI Kit actually usable for real life companies, with complex needs for technical components.
UI Kit allows designers and founders to supercharge their design workflow, and to harness the full power of Figma with meticulously crafted and highly technical components.
UI Kit handles complexity more than any other library, from complex hierarchies in tree viewers, or state management in tables, to large amount of variants for rich text editors.
For this UI Kit, I have carefully built dozens of exceptionally realistic interface, meticulously tailored to enable founders to get started on their project with unparalleled swiftness and ease.
UI Kit comprises hundreds of meticulously crafted components and thousands of their variants, ensuring an unparalleled selection that guarantees founders will discover precisely what they're looking for.
V7 is a product-led company building a data training platform that allows customers to turn their data into trustworthy AI. The platform is used by leaders in various technical fields, from industry to medical.
When I started working at V7, one of the main areas of focus for Darwin was to make the medical labelling experience much smoother and faster. For this, we introduced Dark Mode, True 3D, 3D Brushes and Flexible Layouts.
As a Product Designer, I'm working on UI Systems, from designing new features, UI reskins and Design System optimization.
As the owner of the Design System, I've been regularly updating components to use the latest Figma features. I'm also responsible for creating documentation for new components so that the usage is consistent.
I'm also responsible for designing new features or reskins of existing features.
Arro is an AI-Powered User Research Assistant. After raising a Pre-seed Round, their founders invited me to join the adventure as Founding Designer. I've developed and now own the brand and product design, as well as the brand's design system.
As Founding Designer, part of my role is also to develop marketing materials for the brand development, like this video introducing the Previews feature.
The submissions table allows Researchers to quickly scroll through summaries of the discussions that happened between users and the AI assistant
We've developed a discussion experience optimized for focus and sharing through subtle animations and interactions, available from desktop to mobile devices.
Arro provides an overview for each interview that highlights a summary of all the discussions, a list of answers to specific outcomes, and a list of opportunities identified by the AI Assistant.
Led interface design and UI kit for a canvas-based interface for modelling and simulating brain models, in collaboration with neurosciencists and technical teams to transform a complex idea into a smooth user experience.
The model is built of nodes, projections and compositions. Each element has their own properties accessible from the Components Hierarchy.
When the user opens a composition, the Components Hierarchy panel automatically show which components are out of the view. This allows the user to drag components in this sidebar to include or exclude from a composition. This sidebar gives extra visibility and control to the user.
To build a node, the user can either drag-and-drop the placeholder node from the toolbar or select the tool by clicking on it and clicking on the canvas to add a node. A submenu to display and switch the type of node they're building also appears.
To create a composition, the user activates the tool in the toolbar and click-and-drag on the canvas to create the composition. This solution allows the user to keep control over their workspace and workflow since some users may prefer to start building their compositions before building their nodes, or vice-versa.
For the composition creation, we explored many different options. One of them was to click on the nodes the user wants to include in the composition. We gave up on this option for usability and technical constraints. Indeed, this would have led the UI to having to assume the position of the nodes in the composition.
Founding Designer of Ollie, an app for online, on-site ordering in bars and restaurants. Designed the brand, the user’s mobile app and the restaurant’s management iPad app.
The UI and brand are intended to be neutral in order to integrate with a maximum of restaurants and to highlight their dishes through photos.
The brand is intended to be neutral, yet it retains a refined and modern identity through the subtle details of the design.
The restaurant interface is mainly designed for tablets. It includes some components whose UX is complex like the system of editing the opening hours.
The interface follows the design guidelines of each device and OS to benefit from an optimal integration in native language and usual interactions.
MetaCell Cloud is the suite of products powered by MetaCell. For building those products more efficiently and quickly, I led the creation of MetaCell Design System, our in-house design system based on our brand.
As part of the rebranding we operated in 2021, we also created a new design system for our in-house products. As Lead Designer, I had the responsibility to collaborate with engineers and product teams in order to build a useful and scalable design system.
The UI uses different shades of dark and light grey in order to create structure and architecture in the design. The advantage of this system is that it can be replicated for all the apps of the suite in order to create unconscious content architecture across the products.
When zooming-out, the structure reveals its advantage in creating a consistent layout that can be reused across the views and products.
MetaCell Cloud Hosting offers a support center where users can discuss with technical support team members. This very-specific view also uses the structural layout and design system elements.
