User Experience Design Director / Auckland
Romain has been User Experience Design Director at DNA Auckland for a number of years. In that time he has led many significant projects, and he has been part of the evolution in approach the Auckland team have adopted. Romain has embraced agile, lean and developed using sprints as a core part of the practice.
Before joining DNA, Romain worked as a web designer for 9 years. His skills cover the whole gamut of digital design, from concept and information architecture to site design and production. Romain is a user-centered design junkie and as DNA Auckland’s senior digital design head, he draws on a rich experience in large and complex UX projects.
Recent work has seen Romain working on TVNZ, Fisher & Paykel Appliances, BNZ, ASB, Sleepyhead, Mercury, Trustpower and Skinny Mobile.
Romain is a bit of a jack of all trades - he has muscled in on the development teams space and delivered a bunch of interactive project work in his time - and he leads research and testing as part of the day job. First and foremost, he is a designer - he loves creating websites and digital interactions that are not only beautiful to look at, rich to experience but useful, usable and accessible.
