My name is Chlovis, but you can call me Chlo.
I’m an M-shaped designer, specialized in interaction design, information architecture and user experience strategy.
I’m a maker and an entrepreneur at heart, I like to prototype ideas, test it and iterate to build something cool from the ground. I use this methodology on my own products on spare time.
My digital strategist and project manager background complete these skills and makes me a perfect fit for early stage projects or startups.
I work remotely and asynchronously since 4 years.
My communication skills, organization and work habits not only make it possible but also bring values to my clients: less and more efficient meetings, focusing on the outputs instead of the inputs.
I manage juniors and freelancers from different design expertise and therefore I’m comfortable leading a design team.
Every year, I mentor (amazing) design students from “Les Gobelins” (Paris) and feel lucky to help them on topics like ethics, remote and inclusivity.
I entered the design field doing flash banners and emails, then became a project manager/UX in a web agency. At some point, I decided to focus on information architecture and user-centric design to bring clarity in products and websites. I went freelance and still happily am!
Today, I work within teams on selected projects + consulting.

I like to challenge myself with new things.
This is why I’m freelancing: to keep a balance between my work and my personal projects.
We are a Taiwan based start-up, currently developing products and experiences around augmented reality and mobile technology.

“The Mask you Live In” @LeTank in Paris
I co-organised this projection in France, because at the time it was the only way to watch it. The topic of this documentary was the roots of toxic masculinity in the US. We used this opportunity to animate a discussion session afterwards with sociology & psychology experts. Thanks to Baptiste Fluzin & Spintank, this was made possible.
The documentary is now accessible on Netflix.
