brief introduction

Charles received an MSc in Computational Architecture with Distinction from the University College London after Graduating from a BA(hons) in Industrial Design. He was born and raised in Paris, France and moved to London in 2012 to further his studies. He worked for a number of start-ups including the world's largest 3D printing platform in Amsterdam (3DHubs). Prior to joining TypeMe_ he offered a design and prototyping service to the creative sector (ProdPoint). His fascination lies in applying a scientific knowledge to design problems, by quantifying variables we can make more rational decisions.

what I can offer you

A brief overview of what I think sets me apart.

PRODUCT DESIGN

From concept to manufacture I can help along the way.

TECHNICAL EXPERTISE

I thrive  from being challenged within a technical environment.

3D PRINTING

With 6+ years experience, I can help you bring your ideas to life.

BRANDING

Giving a product an identity is key to communicating your story.

CAMERA

I've produced several commercial videos and taken part in product shoots.

PHYSICAL COMPUTING

I have worked with electronics such as sensors and motors.

INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS

Making people interact with your brand through art can do amazing things.

a glance at my work

Through an innate interest for how things are made, came the fascination for digital manufacturing, Although this interest is still very much present, my focus is shifting towards learning computational methods and embracing scientific knowledge to solve complex design problems.

my skill levels

As a designer from a making background  I seek to leverage technological tools to enhance the rationality behind design decisions. Therefore my skill-set is an unusual mix, combining both traditional manufacturing methods with computer programming.

DEDICATION

PROBLEM-SOLVING

CONCEPTUALIZATION

Amongst 8 other students within 10,000+ I was selected for the intern of the year award for exceptional work during my placement at BOOO, a consumer electronics company.

A logical and rational approach to problem solving, demonstrated with a Distinction for a Masters of Science in Computational Architecture.

A proven track record for understanding customer requirements, producing a series of concepts and turning an idea into a physical prototype.

OTHER SKILLS

TypeMe was created along with a group of colleagues from the Architecture Computation Masters at the University College London. Our aim is to cater for the growing need from engineers and designers to create their own tools for solving specific problems with custom software. We have experience working with state of the art computational techniques, from Machine Learning to evolutionary computation to design space syntax analysis, robotic vision and assembly, adaptive wearables, self regulated building management systems, geometry rationalization and sound installations among many other projects.

TypeMe_

ProdPoint.

ProdPoint, is a service I created during my last years of university to serve the creative industry with a 3D design and FDM printing service. Since its creation it has helped 100's of designers, architects and engineers and is still doing so today.  We pride ourselves to deliver a next day service whilst maintaining the best quality prints.
