1- UI/ UX Design: Mitsubishi Fuso truck(Kawasaki)

In Fuso The sales process and truck maintenance were based on a catalog, white boards, and printed sales manuals for the staff of Fuso all over Japan. With the release of the new eCanter 2.0 (electric truck), this method was not acceptable anymore. So we decided to digitalize and modernize all the processes by developing web applications (truck configuration, quotation, maintenance, et cetera).

- Design and development of the solution configurator, Fuso sales staff can configure and create an estimate quotation of any Fuso trucks (Electric, diesel), including all the information about it with recommendations, during a customer visit using a laptop or tablet.
- COC, a system that gathers all the information about truck maintenance, ticket creation for truck technical issues, dashboards, etc.
- eCommunity, website to manage Fuso articles and news.
- TCO, a tool that calculate the total cost of ownership of a vehicle compare to another.
- Second life dashboard to manage the truck when they go to second hand market.
- Truck connect, a website to manage electic vehicle battery charge, localization ect.
For this application I created tutorial videos with hand drawn character, logos, illustrations.

This website-based application is used all over Japan by the sales team in the Fuso branches. We introduced this application at various Fuso events, internally and for public audience also, for example to Japanese journalists, and some articles were written about it (newSwitch article) or to fuso world premiere and Tokyo motor show 2023.

Process of work:
User research, creation of persona, site map and low res mock up creation on Adobe XD, stake holder meetings to get all content and requirements, creation of final mock up with all the UI kit (colors, graphic elements rules ect), user test and review, daily follow up of developement, bug review and feed back. Study and follow up the tool usage and adoption, final feedback from users.

2- UI/ UX Design: Rakuten Logistic (Tokyo)

Issue: The logistic websites may be difficult to understand for the users (Rakuten Ichiba sellers)
Also, other applications had an old design and need renovation for internal logistic teams, or are used in special condition like in a warehouse with a very repetitive use. We need to make a better logistic back office system compare to Amazon, Next Engine for example and become number one in Japan.

Solution: Create the best funtions for users, make the process easy to understand depending of the user and condition, choose the best organization for forms, fields, buttons and table of results, check the user feedback to improve design. We created a UI library with components and documentation to keep the design consistent and a site map.

Process of work: The work flow was following Agile management process, with Scrum Team and sprint period of 2 weeks. As part of the design team of OMS logistic group, I made prototypes of various logistic applications, the main project was BOSS, back office support system with around 5000 users ( and smaller project for internal services (information about sellers, API management ect), warehouses workers (touchpad to prepare orders, picking, choose packaging ect).

3- Web design: I-order (Yokohama)

Issue: I-order was searching foreigner clients to help them to sell in Japan e-commerce (Rakuten, Amazon, Wowma).

Solution: I made the website with modern tools, organize events all over the world by creating flyers, search new overseas clients.

4- Graphic design: Rue du commerce,, Carrefour (Paris, France)

Process of work: As a contract employee, I worked as graphic designer, content manager for different French e-commerce websites, rue du commerce,, Carrefour Ooshop Supermarket.
Every week new products was selected to be on front page of the website, sometime special operations or events. The marketing service decided which products will be on the landing pages, so created banners in various format depending of the page with Photoshop, e-mailing and integrate it with a content management system in HTML and CSS, javascript if necessary.

Issue: Each graphic elements of the website must be attractive to make the user click and buy the product, we had tools to annalyse where the users click the most.

Solution: Create interesting banners and mailing, original with attractive colors and buttons with good description of the products, use of the SNS, creation of games to win products like quiz.

6- Graphic designer: Alten (Paris)

Process of work: Alten is a leader in Engineering and Outsourced R&D and IT Services. They also create E-learning and training to help other companies in the process of change, for example: create serious games to explain what is the new process of work, explain to employees what are the disabilties at work ect. The process is a story board was created by the client and engineers, I was in charge of the characters design, the background, animation in Flash, design of mini-games and coding with action script 3 and show the progress to the client during meeting. I made E-learning for clients of Alten and for the company itself also.

Issue:Serious games was usually not very creative, employees need good e-learning to understand new process at work or any necessary training for work.

Solution: I drew characters, background and other elements and digitized them with photoshop and illustrator in Anime style, because my style is manga. The e-learning was looking better, funnier, more attractive for the user.
