My school background is Science, Physics, and I switched to Interactive Design after Beaux Arts School. QuestionAwww: What did you do before becoming a designer/developer? David: My first professional life was Physics instrumentation, where I discovered Human Machine Interface and coding. QuestionAwww:  In your opinion, which is the future of the Web? (HTML5, Responsive Design, Flash, Mobile...) David: The future of the Web will be based on creative content and responsive design but technical solution is not essential, code is just a tool.

David: During the Snapshots of Provence production (Tourism 2010 WebbyAwards Winner), my fellow, Jérôme, sound designer, was recording exterior sounds in a field with bulls... annoyed by our presence, they started to run towards us. Great demonstration of the web production dangerousness. QuestionAwww:  Which are you for: Mac or PC? David: Mac... Thank you Steve. QuestionAwww:  Which is your favorite software? David: Currently it is a game, Sword & Sworcery, beautiful. QuestionAwww:  Which city do you live in? Is it a good place for designers? David: Paris, a good place for designers...

David: I like interactive installation or interactive surprising material, currently I am quite excited in augmented books or paper games, for example Volumique QuestionAwww:  Tell us about your latest project. David: One of our latest projects is the Louvre Museum Website. We produced a lot of content, videos, pedagogical animations and interactives maps.
