A FEW WORDS
My name is Nico Ferney, French designer based in Toronto, ON.
I was born and raised in Paris, France (Hence the cheesy picture).
I like to craft digital products that solve real problems (not imaginary ones).
I also write some stuff for UX collective. Sometimes I talk about UX/UI and Visual Design on Youtube.
Down below are some brands that I’ve worked for in France and Canada.
HOW I WORK
My users make me go out.
I observe them. I take notes.
I ask them questions. I collect data.
Engaging the team is crucial.
Making sure everyone is part of the conversation.
I like people. I like to connect brains together.
Let’s sketch your new product.
It’s fast, it’s fun.
It’s time away from the screen.
I’m a Sketch-lover, I must confess.
Design Systems. Clean layout. Accessible stuff.
Turning static comp into a live and organic interface.
That’s quite a thrill.
I never get tired of this.
Time to test these functionalities.
And compare some KPIs.
User-centric and business-oriented.
