Nicolas uses numerics and code to nurture creative processes and help solve strategic challenges. He designs tools, models and interfaces tailored to the situation, whether it be a generative brand identity system, a recommendation algorithm for a cultural mobile app, a multi-screen interactive engagement experience for a conference, or an evolutive live-streamed logo.
An advocate of generative design as a powerful framework to tackle complexity from both rational and sensitive points of view, Nicolas is founder of discretise!, a consultancy in creative and strategic algorithmics. His clients include industrial and web start-ups, public/cultural institutions as well as large corporate groups.
Prior to his current activity, Nicolas worked for five years in the R&D departments of French industrial groups Air Liquide and Saint-Gobain. He was trained as an engineer at the Ecole Polytechnique and holds a PhD in physics modeling and numerical simulation.
