Solène Bourgeois joins Bridge Design as Senior Industrial & Interaction Designer
Why she moved from consumer to medical design
“I want to impact people in their every day needs and work on some of life’s essential problems. Designing medical products includes this value and characteristics. I like to tackle projects that require a lot of thinking and solving of constraints. Bridge gives me the opportunity to work in depth and very closely with clients and users to solve complex challenges. I am also able to bring my years of experience in electronics and consumer products to the medical space. And, I shouldn’t miss saying that Bridge gives me a super supportive and trusting atmosphere for creative talent.”
And now for Solene’s more traditional “bio”
I bring an international experience, having worked in Spain, Germany, Belgium and now the US. For the past seven years, I have worked in multi-disciplinary teams including ID/UX/UI and graphic designers, ME/EE engineers, strategist and business professionals on a variety of projects from future scenarios of technology usage, to tableware, footwear, work environments, electronics and medical products. From micro to macro, from ideas to prototypes, from user testings to manufacturing, I have been involved with more than 15 products that went to market. In Europe, I worked for such large companies as Tupperware, Kickers and Leroy Merlin. In the US, before joining Bridge, I have worked at leading San Francisco Bay Area ID design consultancies Fuseproject and New Deal Design.
