Technology is nice. It undergirds most of what we do at scale today. It’s a powerful tool for change, but much like money, it turns toxic when sought for its own sake.
I want to see technology do good. I think it can help people help each other. It can celebrate human qualities. It can empower artists over technocrats and foster individual craft over power structures.
Sometimes I get to do my part in the change, and sometimes I get to cheer from the sidelines as it happens. Hopefully, these letters will be a mix of both.

I’m Louis-André, I work as an independent digital designer (who doesn’t!) and I hobby as a generative artist. I’ve been in this biz for a bit over ten years now, first working mostly with biotechs, startups and large organizations. I’ve since moved away from the frenetic parts of the industry – and have been much happier since.
