My name is Andréa MELIN and I live in the Paris (France). For the past four years, I have been an interactive designer in a French new technology company. In the final year of my master’s degree in digital design, I study new methods of storytelling and project management.
In September 2019, I finished my contract with my current employer. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in my profile, I am currently looking for an interactive designer position in France or Tokyo.
My studies begin with an Applied Art Upgrade to improve my artistic skills. However, art schools do not yet use computer tools enough and I am moving towards a BTS Audiovisual Editing & Post-production in double degree Web Culture in order to get closer to the world of interaction.
This specialization only happens in a bachelor’s degree where I move towards interactive scriptwriting while beginning my alternating years in a first position as a multimedia designer. I designed my first prototype video game and participated in the creation of a virtual reality application.
When I entered the master’s program, I specialized more in new technologies and video games. My research thesis is therefore focused on the preservation of the video game heritage while I continue my studies around UX design. My Master’s degree after two alternating years was also an opportunity to evolve within my company and become a UX designer in research and development on issues of immersive experiences and digital interfaces.
