This evening, the amazing interaction designer Etienne Mineur is giving a talk within the context of The Upgrade! Paris. He's going to present his experimental work carried out for major international companies, like Issey Mikaye. Etienne is one of the few people I know who's able to be edgy, ambitious and explorative within a web commercial context. In his blog, My-Os,he regularly presents his work and reviews with a sharp eye things he likes or dislikes (mostly anything related to the French national train company SNCF's communication).
I've first met him as my teacher at the Fine Arts school almost ten years ago and he's still the same humble and enthusiastic person that he was then. I'll be happy to moderate this talk this evening at the invitation of Julie Morel, who organises The Upgrade! Paris with Incident.net.
