I’m Alix Gora
Interactive Designer –
Mixed reality and audiovisual applied to cultural mediation
After an A-level in applied art, I decided to go to L’École de Design Nantes Atlantique where I completed a bachelor’s degree specializing in Interaction design. After my graduation, I went to São Paulo to begin a master’s degree in intercultural design. This program was in the Brazil Studio of L’École de Design Nantes Atlantique in collaboration with Mackenzie Presbyterian University. Unluckily, due to the Covid-19, my international exchange was shortened. I come back to France to end my master’s degree in the media design lab of the school. Finally, I was hired by Lumeen, a French company that uses Virtual reality for social and therapeutic purposes. I’m now in charge of 360°audiovisual production and mediation.

How do I see Design?
For me, Interaction design doesn’t mean Webdesign. I investigate interactions as a way for humans to communicate with technologies. Why? Because technologies allow us to see things differently and to experiment with creative tools. I want as a designer to constantly develop a new user experience in every part of the project that my team and I are building. I would like to have the opportunity to make researches on interaction and to develop an innovative project including emotion thanks to all the possibilities technologies give to us.
During my studies, I did various things that determine who I am today!
Design is teamwork! Managed a team is one of the principal missions of a designer. The more we are, the better! Because of my diverse knowledge, I can work and perceive issues of various types of workers.
Culture has true importance for me. Giving access to our history and work for the cultural domain is one of my biggest motivations as a designer. I think that it is important to highlight our culture and to show people how much it is meaningful.
