Thibault Montaufray

DesignOps / Product Design / Creative Engineer

Partly Remote FR / CH

I can help you select the best design workflows from the early stages of your project to the final interface of your product. I also support the production effort by managing, designing and developing myself. During the last 12 years as a professional Digital Designer, I worked on Financial, Industrial, Military, Distribution, Mobile and Marketing projects. More than 20 years after writing my first line of HTML, I still love to solve issues with Design and Frontend solutions.

Recently, at BNP PARIBAS CIB, I built a documented Design System with ReactJS and Storybook for the new bank's marketplace of cloud digital services. It resulted in faster teams' workflows, a better product experience and a reduced screen production time.

I am open to any new collaboration, as occasional support for your teams or for a longer term project. It all starts with a call or an appointment. My work can be done remotely with weekly physical follow-up meetings or on site at your office. My fees are fixed per day or global package, depending on your project.

Thibault is an excellent polyvalent frontend designer. He is one of the only people I know who are able to design apps and websites directly in CSS. I recommend him if you want to build a modular and reusable design system or iterate very fast on your front-end.
