I’m Philippe, a 25-year-old designer, developer, and photographer living in Sydney, currently working as a self-employed creative technologist. Over the last couple of years, I have worked in renowned companies, created a self-employed creative business, finished studies in computer science and design, done exciting projects with inspiring people, developed a deep passion for the intersection of psychology and technology, and most importantly, invested a lot of time in self-development. Passion and hard work are at the heart of everything I do and I am constantly on a quest for new experiences.
I aim to design technology that helps people change their behaviour towards what they consider most healthy, and making them most happy. My fascination for the human mind- from cognitive biases to social dynamics -has bolstered my skills in human-centered design, but also helped to create a more meaningful, productive, and happy life for myself; something I write about in my blog. The ubiquitous technologies of today have been designed around capturing our attention and exploiting human vulnerabilities for short-term profit in ways that are often detrimental to our mental health and well-being, accelerate cultures of injustice, and contribute to hyper-polarization (a.o.). I want to design humane technology, treating attention as sacred and helping people and societies to reach their goals.
What started numerous years ago as, what I think, a creative balance to my analytical mindset, has resulted in a design & photography business today. Since a few years ago, I have fallen in love with taking pictures, focusing on landscapes, people, and their emotions. I like to play with composition, visual style, and perspective to fit my current preferences or the style of my client. Today, I am shooting conferences abroad, weddings of private clients, social media campaigns for the government, and more. Since two years ago, the company is moving in a direction where I also do UX design work for agencies and private clients, conceptualizing and designing applications, business ideas, and websites.
