ABOUT

Gaël Hillion, Product designer.

Gaël Hillion, Product designer.

I am a French Product designer with a User experience Master's Degree from L’École de Design Nantes Atlantique. From basics to full UX methodologies, I learned to design user centered products and services.
I chose to study design for my love of problem solving. During my last experiences, I worked for different companies, always looking for the most efficient way to solve problems and keeping in mind that design is above all about empathy.

Because I want to help people have a better life, I am keen to always learn more about UX methodologies.

I worked with them
Renault, Zeiss, Ford, Airbus, Scnf, Rothschild, Google, Continental Foods, Shopify

SHOPIFY

Product design intern
May 2018 - August 2018

Working in the UX Money team to make payment processing an after thought for merchants, allowing them to focus on their core business instead.

I had the pleasure to work with Gaël for 4 months in the context of an UX designer internship at Shopify. Gaël quickly surprised me by his deep thinking and the quality of his work. He onboarded really quickly and started working on problems right away. Gaël values quality through collaboration and is a total team player. I would recommend Gaël to anyone who's looking for a reliable designer working on complex problems.
