David Bihanic (PhD)

Designer and founder of the FXDESIGNSTUDIO (FXDS) digital design agency, associate professor at Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne — permanent researcher at the ACTE Research Institute (UMR 8218), and associated researcher (honorary member) responsible for Digital Affairs at CALHISTE Laboratory (Culture, Arts, Literature, History of Societies and Foreign Territories — EA 4343) as well as at EnsadLab — David Bihanic examines the different paradigms of visualization and manipulation of large and complex datasets. Thanks to cognitive-aesthetics analysis of visual organizations of information, he explores new opportunities for data design (data visualization aesthetics, and creative informatics). David is an accomplished professional with more than fifteen years of experience in creative design industries. He published several books and book chapters, as well as numerous scientific articles relating to the new stakes of design (considering the linkages between Design and Engineering Sciences); he then takes an active part in the evolution and transformations occurring in this field. His research is also centered upon new “end-user” interfaces (map-like, tangible, relationship-based interfaces, etc.).
