Jean-Louis Fréchin is a DPLG architect and a graduate of ENSCI. In 1989 he left France to work at the INESC, a computer research institute in Lisbon. There he discovered the fertility of drawing together design and computer science. On his return to Paris, he set up a global design Studio , handling many urban, industrial and cultural projects. In 1995, he joined the publishers Montparnasse Multimedia to take part in the adventure of producing quality multimedia titles about education and culture.
In 2001 he set up NoDesign, a digital design office specializing in creation, innovation and strategic thinking for information technologies and interactions in industrial and cultural projects. Jean-Louis is recognized as a front-runner in digital design, he is also a consultant for firms in new fields: innovation by design, advanced technologies, innovation strategy.
For him, design is a state, a prism for understanding and questioning the world. New challenges, new territories, attempting to enlarge the ‘scope of what is possible’ and ‘desirable’, without losing the basic values of design; meaning, simplicity, emotion, and above all human endeavour. His work is always based on the idea of global design and aims at making an intrinsic link between content, interactive design and technology – at creating meaning.
