l o a d i n g

My name is Thomas Voindrot and I’m happy to see you here. I studied graphic design at Esad Amiens and UX design at UTC Compiègne in France. Through working on more personal projects, I have also studied and explored the fields of sound design, animation and web development. I’m interested in finding ways to combine my experience in these different fields for future creative projects. Scroll down to see some examples of my work.

SYNTHOPIA

MASTER'S PROJECT (DNSEP) - UX/UI - SOUND DESIGN

Synthopia is an audio plug-in (VST) dedicated to digital audio workstations (DAW) like Ableton, Fruity Loops or Pro-Tools. This project follows my graduate thesis conclusion (Representing Sound Creation) noticing the lack of diversity in the conception of user interfaces for virtual instruments.

 

Mixing city builder videogame interface elements and audio loop, Synthopia brings a playful dimension to the music making process as the user has the possibility to build an audio city.

DIALOGUE

RESEARCH - UX/UI

In partnership with SPACEI research laboratory (UTC, Compiègne), this project attempts to study the notion of joint attention between a computer and a person with autism. Inspired by the Turing test, Dialogue is a non-verbal communication interface based on music, which can evaluate a subject’s reactions when communicating with a “hidden person”, as well as their capacity to identify non-human answers.

D.R.O.N.E

WORK IN PROGRESS - UX/UI - SOUND DESIGN

D.R.O.N.E is a plug-in which manages reverberation of sound and music samples by using drone movements in a digital space. Each drone position provides a unique reverberation. This project illustrates the combination of audio research and visual exploration.

P-PLAYER

WORK IN PROGRESS - UX/UI

This audio player is designed for musicians and is inspired by the Soundcloud comments interface. When the music starts, the user enters into a digital exploration phase, and can leave objects in the digital space to illustrate a comment. The objects already there represent comments left by previous users, which can be read with a simple click.

ZOO OZO OOZ

BOOK DESIGN - DRAWINGS

In partnership with the Amiens Zoo, this book project contains different illustrations of zoo animals made by the 2nd year graphic design students at Esad Amiens. After visits to the zoo, each student created illustrations of their chosen animal, in the graphic technique of their choice. In collaboration with Nadine Rotem-Stibbe.
