Nicolas Catherin

UX designer senior


I’m currently working at Symplicit, the UX consulting agency in Melbourne, but I’m still open to great opportunities. Feel free to say hello.
I’m a 8 years experienced designer for multi-devices digital services with a strong visual design background.

I used to work in a mighty technical environment with developers and accessibility experts. I also learn how to use the Design Thinking process and I’m able to do research and user testing as well. I love to build easy-to-use, engaging and powerful experiences.

I was lead designer at “Clever Age”, a french agency. I enhanced the user experience design business, including design team process, strategic recommendation and interfaces design. I provided user experience design and usability consulting for a number of Clever Age clients in every sectors.
