Usability, UX, and Visual Design
Usability work, Human Interface Guidelines, ergonomics and human-computer interaction are part of my blood. As an interaction designer, I have contributed in this fashion to dozens of computer software applications projects.
I have also designed icons, logos and brand architectures used in many software applications or in various businesses.
My portfolio is not available online. Email me and I will be happy to send you a tailored version.
My continued involvement in Free and Open Source software has made me file hundreds of bug reports and thousands of comments on various pieces of software that I have used and loved. Over time, I have involved myself in bug triaging to ease the developers' task. My bug reports are scattered over the web, but are for the most part contained in:
I also have a list of some of the top bugs I'm proud to have helped solve or investigate.
I maintained Pitivi's automated user interface test suite for some years.
