Thomas Borie

Lead Project Engineer

Thomas Borie

Lead Project Engineer

Thomas is Lead Project Manager and has been with us since 2013. As a designer with a background in engineering he naturally tends to focus on product design and connected spaces. He has largely contributed to our development on these subjects through his work on specific projects, like the creation of interactive terminals for La Villette park in Paris or connected apartments for Nexity. More recently he worked for Airbus on redesigning passengers’ flying experience inside an A380. He feeds his interest in these fields with constant research - he published two studies on the industrial IoT and 3D impression - and by regularly coming up with new ideas for our own use: he contributed largely in the creation of the Sandbox, our very own fablab!

With a passion for sport (and biking in particular - check out his article on bike sharing in Shanghai!), Thomas was keen to work on the topic of innovation in sports. So in 2017, along with Kévin and Boris, he published a study on digital disruption in the sports industry which was presented for the first time at our Business&Breakfast at LA.SALLE.DE.SPORT. and many times since! A great way to explore a fascinating subject, which brought Thomas to contribute to projects for Eurosport and Rolland Garros this year.

A ENSCI Arts et Métiers graduate, Thomas previously worked for Jaeger-Lecoultre and Aubecq in product research and development.

Kévin Roirand

Project Director

Kévin Roirand

Project Director

Kévin joined us in 2016 as a director. With over 5 years experience in digital innovation, he helps key clients and their teams uncover their user’s needs and uses this key research to design human-centered products, services, and systems. He recently worked for Airbus on redesigning A380 passengers’ flying experience.

The key to designing a relevant and impactful product or service? Kévin believes it all lies in approaching each project with deep empathy for the end-users, allowing for a better understanding of underlying societal changes and evolutions in usage patterns.  

Kévin is never happier than when he’s talking about sports. A subject he decided to dig into deeper in 2017, as you can read in his article about Innovation in the Olympic Games. He is also the co-author, along with Boris and Thomas of a study on the evolution of sports in the digital age which was presented for the first time at our Business&Breakfast event  at LA.SALLE.DE.SPORT, and many times since.

A Télécom École de Management graduate, Kévin previously worked for French digital agency UZIK as a project director for some of Paris’s most renowned cultural institutions.

Obsessed with the Internet, Kévin feeds his curiosity by picking new ideas from everywhere, mixing origins and cultures, as he does with his number 1 passion: music.

Senior Project Analyst

Juliette Bocquet

Senior Project Analyst

Juliette joined us in 2015, after studying business at HEC Paris. She started her adventure with us by contributing to FABERNOVEL INSTITUTE’s projects, facilitating agile workshops and digital trainings for C-levels across Europe (Paris, Barcelone, Lisbonne - and so on).

A free electron (/Jack of all trades), she has been working on our innovation strategy projects since 2016 - focusing on bringing the most value to our clients with creativity. Defining the B2B strategy of an insurance company, designing a D2C offer for a leading beauty player - or even prototyping a community Hub and engaging contents for anti-corruption experts: she takes up any challenges and loves exploring the digital playing field with no limits, while enjoying good team moments.

Connecting the dots of her innovation journey with us, we can tell there is a magnetic land she likes to settle in: after past experiences at CANAL+ and in media strategy for FMCG brands, her heart belongs to the media, content and entertainment industries.

Audrey Da Cruz

Art Director

Audrey Da Cruz

Art Director

In July 2015 Audrey came to strengthen our creative team as an Art Director, and she’s been with us ever since!
Today she is involved in a wide variety of projects: visual identity design, responsive interface design, illustrations, as well as video editing alongside our filmmaker Morgan.
Audrey works hand in hand with our design strategists, by contributing to the design of many experience cards (for MAIF for instance) as well as hosting workshops and rapid prototyping.

Audrey has always loved the visual arts and often visits museums after dark to draw. After high school she moved straight into the artistic world by following courses in visual arts, before naturally turning to a diploma in visual communication specialized in publishing and visual identity. But something was missing! She wanted to be more in touch with today’s digital realities. And that’s exactly what she got by pursuing a master’s degree in Digital Art Direction at French school LISAA, which taught her more about web development, video editing / motion design and to web and mobile model creations.

After her studies, Audrey first joined the teams of 148 (agency of digital & creative communication) where she worked for various clients before joining us six months later.

Marina Dislich

Communication Manager

Marina Dislich

Communication Manager

Marina joined us in 2017 and took hold of our communication and marketing: she is in charge of defining and implementing our brand and communication strategy, involving everything from event organization, partnership management and press relations to branding or internal communication! Having started her professional life in advertising and communication agencies after specializing in brand strategy and advertising at top communication school CELSA, she naturally has a very “brand oriented” approach to communication and uses her creative and strategic baggage daily in her role. And that is precisely what she likes about her everyday work: its creativity and the liberty she is given to develop new ideas (hers and ours together!) and make them happen!

Curious to see some of her work? She organized our latest Business&Breakfast events at Paris hotspots LA.SALLE.DE.SPORT., STATION F and PALAIS DE TOKYO, worked on the launch of our 2018 annual study: TESLA, uploading the future, and she edits the articles and stories we write for the FABERNOVEL blog (she says this is one of her favorite tasks). Oh, and she co-created this very website (and keeps it up to date) ;-)

Hortense Tollu

Junior Design Strategist

Hortense Tollu

Junior Design Strategist

Hortense joined us in 2018 as a Junior Design Strategist. She studied both design and engineering, and is convinced both disciplines should be used simultaneously even though their philosophies, approaches and languages are very different. That’s what makes them interesting together!

She was missing a more creative approach in her work. So she naturally turned to design and got into top design school ENSCI-Les Ateliers where she was able to put her technical knowledge to great use in her artistic projects. She worked on many projects and had the opportunity to collaborate with the CEA of Grenoble on a project on digital and light. She then went to Politecnico di Milano to learn more about space and services, before completing her studies with a deep understanding of materials and services at Köln International School of Design in Germany. Hortense then joined top engineering school CentraleSupélec where her main focus were system design and digital.

Her main focus today is on topical themes such as mobility, gender parity or the future of work. But what she really likes is design and creating new digital and physical experiences and prototyping them. The user is placed at the center of her strategy: understanding his/her habits to speed up his journey, diminish his workload or alter his behaviour is what Hortense is really passionate about.        

 

Guillaume Gombert

Senior Project Engineer

Guillaume Gombert

Senior Project Engineer

In December 2014, Guillaume was conducting technology intelligence reports within Essilor, a leading eye-glass company where he completed his apprenticeship, when he came upon a presentation that changed his vision of the network economy: our yearly report, GAFAnomics.

After months of eager anticipation - he had to complete his studies! - and after graduating from both engineering schools Telecom ParisTech and École Polytechnique, we welcomed Guillaume as a Project Manager.

Since he first read about the platform economy in GAFAnomics, Guillaume has been exploring organizational transformations that digital technologies enable, with clients from many industries: construction, logistics, retail, smart city…

Guillaume is always keen to reshape business and operational models as well as to renew customer relationship. His favorite topic? The launch of disruptive spin-offs within traditional companies.

Now, Guillaume is one of our Senior Project Engineer, a role which perfectly combines both his engineering discipline and his passion for digital disruption.

Curious to read some of his work ? Check out his most recent article on Voice interfaces and the "war" between Amazon and Google, published as part as our story on new interfaces.

Junior Project Analyst

Timothée Deschamps

Junior Project Analyst

A SciencesPo Paris graduate, Timothée is really passionate about the way new technologies are challenging traditional businesses. He joined us in 2018 to make this long-lasting interest a part of his everyday challenge!  

Timothée has worked with different industries such as the public sector, retail and sports in particular, navigating their diverse issues. The key? To think out of the box and seize the opportunities brought to them by the digital revolution. This unyielding optimism has only become stronger since his year spent studying abroad in the United States, where he also developed a strong entrepreneurial spirit.

A committed sportsman, Timothee has a natural soft spot for subjects related to the sports industry and its future in the digital age (he actually followed us very closely in October 2017 when we dedicated a whole month to the sports industry through articles and a study!). Before joining us he got his hands on designing a platform prototype for providing users control over their sensitive data online.

Lead Project Analyst

Aiming to build new products and digital services, Mehdi trained as an IT engineer at the Ecole des Mines de Nantes. Realizing that the product is just one piece of the puzzle, Mehdi became interested in growth and go-to-market strategies based on new distribution and business models. Thus, after completing his training at HEC Paris in 2015, Mehdi joined us as a project analyst, allowing him to provide analysis on the strategy and business models of successful companies in the new economy. From these examples, he  draws inspiration to imagine and design new services feeding the strategic roadmaps of our customers.

Always curious to discover new activities, Mehdi has worked on many sectors since his arrival. His missions have ranged from defining the place of radio in tomorrow’s autonomous cars for Radio France, to defining new digital services in social housing, to analysing and explaining winning strategies for ready-to-wear brands in the digital age.

Beyond customer projects, Mehdi contributes to enriching our strategic analysis models in the new economy. For example, he recently conducted a study with Maxime and Abderrahmane, presented at Station F, where he challenged the idea of “market”: "There are no more markets, only customers". What about your idea of a “market” ?

Senior Project Engineer

Anthony Marois

Senior Project Engineer

Anthony joined us in 2015 and has been designing new services and products ever since! As a Senior Project Engineer, he works on projects that combine design and technology, creating new experiences which he brings to life in tangible ways, through digital services or physical devices for example.

As an engineer, Anthony’s role is to find elegant solutions to problems in complex environments, but he enjoys going digging deeper and systematically goes out “exploring”: through field work he observes usage patterns, seeks and gathers inspiration and tests new concepts first hand.This is how Anthony worked on the launch of a network of co-working spaces in Germany in 2015, a project that continues today and for which he is Product Manager and Product Owner. He also led, among other things, the design of innovative services for an international organization and the creation of a new 100% mobile-based banking offer: Orange Bank.

By participating in our LAB, Anthony explores new technologies to build prototypes and shape new services to inspire our customers and simplify the daily lives of all of FABERNOVEL collaborators and partners. In particular, he worked on the Desk, a very simple screen placed at the reception desk which makes it possible to announce to our colleagues via Slack when someone has arrived for a meeting or if a parcel has been delivered for them. A simple, elegant and very practical object that unburdens our Office Manager and facilitates the life of the deliverers, customers and service providers who visit us!

Anthony is a graduate of Centrale d’Electronique de Paris, Telecom ParisTech and ESSEC Business School.

Abderrahmane Chaoui

Senior Project Analyst

After a three year entrepreneur journey at the head of a biotech startup in Paris, Abderrahmane joined us as a Senior Project Analyst in 2017 and he now puts his learnings at the service of our clients. With a keen interest in strategic issues, he loves to decrypt and interpret the strategic moves of large corporates and startups in the digital era. He was - with Maxime and Mehdi - one of the analysts and speakers behind our March 2018 Business & Breakfast conference on the theme “There are no markets, only customers” (what is your idea of a “market” ?), showing how digital technology tends to erase the boundaries between traditional markets.


An innovation expert with a very hands-on approach, he also loves to witness practical innovation wherever it happens. As such, he helped large corporates such as Nexity structure their corporate innovation efforts around a startup-studio and designed a business model for this hybrid structure between a VC, an internal lab and a startup studio. Besides, he’s been closely observing African innovation developments these past years and has decided to make the exploration of Africa’s innovation ecosystems a priority for this year (if this subject interests you too you should check out his articles on the subject!).

Abderrahmane mostly comes in to help our clients better understand the hidden dynamics in their markets and design an overall strategy, fit to the stakes of the digital era.

Arielle Le Bail

Project Analyst

With a real passion for digital and new technologies, Arielle joined us in 2018 as a Project Analyst, after having graduated from Essec Business School. Her curiosity has lead her to work in very different organisations before. Starting with marketing studies for the Spanish luxury group PUIG, she went on to lead a consulting mission for an NGO in India and spent most of last year in New York working for an American investment fund specialized in cleantech. This unusual and exciting career course most definitely broadened her horizons and knowledge on new markets: she likes to draw inspiration from abroad and particularly enjoyed spending six months in Singapore and nine in New York, two major innovation hotspots.

With this broad experience on various departments and across different countries and cultures,  , Arielle brings her fresh, pluridisciplinary outlook to our projects, helping us to understand our clients’ needs. She recently worked on the comprehension of the Chinese BAT (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent) for a specific study and on the future of retail.

Arielle is also a chess champion and viola player. A true romantic,  she strongly believes that after its frantic race for simplicity and fluidity, digital is now bound  to look for more emotions.

Morgan Gilbert

Morgan is our filmmaker & motion designer and he has been with us for 10 years!

In all this time he’s had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects for our clients as well as for us: documentaries, interviews, videoclips, video animations, and many more… He himself says he is a true “video geek”, always keen to discover new techniques and innovative solutions in video making.

Not surprisingly, what he likes most is testing out these new ideas in his work and he is particularly proud of the different formats we’ve developed on our Youtube channel : the FABERNOVEL TALKS in which we interview colleagues to talk about their jobs, the LAB videos which tell the story of our latest research and development projects and the videos covering our KITCHEN SESSIONS, the private intimate concerts we organize in our kitchens.

Pierre Bernard

Project Engineer

Pierre Bernard

Project Engineer

Pierre joined us as a Project Engineer in 2017. Technically, he actually is an engineer, but that’s not all - and if you ask him he’ll tell you he’s more of a “chimera” (that mythological creature that mixes different animal body parts) with different profiles, which all complement one another.

Curious? He graduated in civil engineering at top engineering school Centrale in Lyon, and completed his training course at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture in Lyon. Before joining us, Pierre kept on exploring both of these disciplines, always finding a way to mix both approaches. Convinced that no idea is complete without a field approach, he began as a site manager for Eiffage Grands Projets on a big renovation project for the Grande Arche de la Défense. He had always been fascinated by the interconnection between digital and urban issues, but that is really when he developed his first intuitions on Smart Cities. He recently traveled to Qatar to tackle his vision by working for Orange Business Services on the iconic project of the Msheireb Downtown Doha Smart City.

Today, Pierre puts his ability to question and dig subjects to great use - for his team and clients! Any question on space, architecture or cities? Feel free to reach out to him - he loves a good debate!

Charlotte Bourcier

Design Strategist

Charlotte Bourcier

Design Strategist
Having studied both design interaction and innovation management at Strate Design School and Grenoble EM, Charlotte is all for mixing approaches and methods and now constantly reinvents her job! She joined us in 2017 at a hybrid position, both as a designer and analyst, allowing her to keep exploring the relationship between design and strategy and to confirm her intuition: a new profession is emerging at the crossroads between both disciplines. From leading user research to defining new business models, Charlotte works with our clients on creating new services and launching new business offers. She recently helped a publishing leader create a new service addressing a new marketing target in record time by testing our “design sprint” format. Whichever the project, Charlotte’s mission is first and foremost to help our clients understand and address their end-users’ needs by defining new user journeys, creating experience maps or developing prototypes. Charlotte strongly believes that part of today’s designers’ role is that of reflecting on the impact produced by digital products and services on our society and she is actively involved in researching new methodologies for sustainable innovation. Don’t miss her latest article, an invitation to consider every designer’s responsibility!
