Gilles Demarty

For more than 15 years, Gilles has been promoting User experience to clients and regional communities alike – via his work as a Senior Interaction Designer at :ratio, by organizing conferences in Lyon and Lausanne, or by hosting the Interaction 18 conference in Lyon.


Nowadays, Gilles focuses at creating the missing tools for UX Designers – the first of which is Gimbalst, a tool to prototype navigation.

About the talk

14:15 - 14:40

Gilles Demarty – That tool that shaped the Interaction architect in me

Gilles believes in the need to make tools that integrate more intimately with the work of the designer.

For the last year, he has been working on Gimbalst, a digital tool for information architects — a tool that helps present navigations to clients.

Since the first beta, he has been using Gimbalst at :ratio, the design agency he works for. And along the way, Gimbalst fundamentally changed his way of designing websites and applications. 

So, in this presentation he will tell you the story of Gimbalst — where it comes from and what he learned while creating it, and he will highlight what has changed in his practice, and explain why.
