Matt
Professor, Design Thinking and First Aid

Mathieu is a French American design strategist. Having parents living in different countries, he had the opportunity to experience foreign cultures from a young age. This contrast led him to develop interests in how societies exchange information. He graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Images and Influence. Shortly after he returned to Paris and began working at J. Walter Thompson advertising agency in the creative execution team and Onirim production house as an account manager.

Bothered by the ephemeral nature of advertising, he decided  he wanted to do something with a stronger lasting impact. Now, he is finishing his Master’s Degree in Design Management at IED Barcelona. Taking advantage of his design background, here he uses a user centric approach at framing relevant problems in our society with the aim of developing solutions that improve everyday user experience. Mathieu is a strong believer that when good design and technologies are cocreated with user needs at the core, the opportunities are endless.
