Lionel Thirion

If I had to describe myself I would say: "the story of a Belgian guy in Tokyo who creates awesome things for awesome people". My name is Lionel Thirion. I am a Senior UI/UX Designer with a Front-end Engineering background and blockchain knowledge.

Here is a non exhaustive list of what I can do : Mobile Design & Prototype (inVision, Sketch, Figma, Framer), Web Design Coding and Optimization (HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, TailwindCSS, PostCSS, CSS and JS Animations), Mobile App Development for iOS and Android (Flutter) , Graphic Design (Logo with Illustrator, Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo). I can also cook awesome crepes and pasta (usefull for those long coding hours sometimes). I never stop learning and want to add more skills to my palette.

What I Do

Mobile Application Design

From an idea to the final product, I create flow, wireframes, mockups and prototype (for Android and iOS). Protototyping is a key to show the product design to developers but also to stakeholders. I'm also learning Mobile Application development (for both iOS and Android platform with Flutter) to be able to manage and work on all the differents steps by myself. I do also have some knowledge of React and React Native which might be important for teams using those frameworks.

UI/UX

A good UX (User Experience) is the key to expand the scope of any business because it ensure the client is having a pleasant experience using a product. Flow, Personas, Best practices, Reusable patterns, UX Deck, there is an infinite way to enhance the UX of any product. The UI (User Interface) part is purely aesthetic but is also quite important. Failing at either UX or UI can be devastating for any business, but no worries, my job is to prevent that.

Frontend

Collaboration between designers and developers has been a challenge for years. I can either collaborate with developers using tools that make their life easier (Figma, Sketch, Zeplin, inVision) or code the design myself using best practices (HTML 5 Tags, Namespacing css, CSS3 animation, SCSS, SASS). More over, I put a lot of effort to optimize design and website by making a lightweight and clean code (webp images, js and css combiner, well documented code). You can check the GTMetrics of my portfolio and see by yourself.

Blockchain (& Cryptocurrencies)

Blockchain has been the most succesful buzzword during last couple years. But is it the new revolution everyone is claiming about ? Anyway, the subject is super interesting and I dived into it in early 2017 (when Bitcoin was just 1000$). I did start to learn about coding ERC 20 Token, created 2 ICO, worked for a mining faciity (I did even mine cryptocurrencies in my own apartment for a while) and worked on the development of an exchange and a mobile application wallet.
