I build tools to empower creatives to use their full potential while staying focused with a bit of craziness.
Creativity in team and co-creation tools
This app for Mac OS X helps teachers and consultants run timer based workshops. They can create up to 4 preset timers with notes.
The Screen Form app for Mac OS X let's events organizers, like teachers and workshop leaders, display on a computer a simple form to capture the personal information of the event attendees.
Tools to get things done by yourself
The Synonym Dictionnaire is a tool that helps creatives find the perfect synonym with the perfect end rime. This tool is especially useful for french poetry.
A music playlist that has the right amount of repetitive beats and happy music to stay creative and focused.
New teaching and learning experiences
Train your eyes to good design in a few blinks. This little web app shows in 10 seconds dozens of images of amazing design pieces from history or today.
Michelle is your memory assistant. This is a simple email service that reminds you knowledge you want to remember.
A selection of books, articles and videos you should look at. Each piece has a little explanation about why you should look at it. It's a great place to start if you are interested in design related topics.
Small Mac Apps for designers
Lowly is a one button Mac OS X app to help you set uppercase text into lowercase in just a click.
Tempy is a no button Mac OS X app where you can write temporary notes without that dum autosave feature that creates useless documents.
The Patrizia app for Mac OS X is a minimal productivity tool that alows you to only work on five tasks for the day. The task categories are predefined to enable you to have a better work-life balance.
Counterly is a simple app for Mac OS X that counts the number of signs in your text. Nothing else. Nothing more.
Simple models for complex problems
In my Master Thesis I developed a canvas to help social workers engaged in social emergency services to use humor as a tool to enhance the experience of their visitors.
The Kick-Off Canvas is a canvas for co-creating with clients creative briefs in a structured view. This tool enables both the client and the creative to have a clear overview of the project and share a common vision and understanding of the project they are working on.
Tools for the graphic design practice
This template file for Indesign transforms Markdown texts in fully designed Indesign files. This is an experiment based on an extreme usage of the GREP styles panel.
Experimental fonts available for everyone
The Fryda typeface is a sans serif with a typical swiss made look. This is the first text font that I created for long texts. The font is still in beta.
Marceline is a handwriting typeface designed with an iPad. This font has a playful look based on my own handwriting and uses only capitals.
Collection of items relevant for creatives
The Sketching Kit aims to provide ready to use sketching elements to people without drawing skills. This library features 400+ hand drawn sketch elements that can be downloaded for free and are ready to use.
From A to B is a collection of free public domain photos that where shot during my many travels across Switzerland and the World.
This collection of icons unites in each symbol a location with an object. These icons were designed for an experimental app that allowed people to remember more easily where they left their most important objects before going in holidays.
A collection of icons drawn with the thumb on an iPhone. These simple vector line icons are released for free.
