Welcome

I am Sylvain, and

 PROFILE: 'HANDS ON'

Double-vocation, double-expertise. Here is my background in detail...

Designer-Codeur is the result of a natural double-vocation I have been developing all along my professional experience touching with creativity and coding. These two areas of application have been complementary until today. Way more than often.

I graduated in Fine Arts, Graphic Design and Web Design dealing mainly with basic HTML, CSS and JavaScript in the late 90s. I started my career as a Lead Graphic & Web Designer being responsible for the production of a Web Studio that was part of a Computer Engineering Company in France. My first success: a 126 pages-web portal designed and developed for the #1 European and Caribbean Golf Network company. Small team, great challenge, short delays, intense efforts, for a great success.
It was definitely worth it.

About 20 years later, strong of a 10+ years experience in Montreal, QC, Canada, working with and for diverse companies such as Léger, Bell, WSP Global, CAE Inc. or Loto Québec, among others, I am still active offering my best expertise in terms of Design, Integration and Development with the same pleasure and enthousiasme, keeping this double hat of mine: Designer and Coder. Nothing has changed except the tools and technos which have evolved much.

What boosts me? Creativity. Coherency. Ergonomics. Technologies. And the shared satisfaction after delivery.

French by birth and culture, Canadian by choice and heart, Québécois d'adoption and Montréalais well rooted.

Designer-Codeur Logotype

As a result of a double-vocation, < /> provides a double-expertise either to finish a project, to re-brand one while still being developed or just to design one giving a shape to a conceptual idea, filling the (remaining) blank page.
Writing declarative codes to avoid heavy reformatting, providing specific CSS not to look like thousands of challengers, or defining the best flows and hierarchy of information beyond trends, < d /> also takes the lead of talented teams temporarily in a 'hands on' way.
Designers do design, developers develop and managers manage. < d /> is about all these at once. Everyone is talented. Experience makes one be so even more. A double-expertise just doubles it.
