Lea Lemaire

Nationality: Canadian
Areas of Expertise: Conceptual and technical design, Immersive and interactive installations

For the past 4 years, Lea has been working as a creative industrial designer for a Montreal based design agency, specialising in one of a kind projects integrating technology and interactivity for the museum, public art, and advertising sectors. Collaborating with a multidisciplinary team composed of designers, engineers, programmers, and new media artists, she led major projects from ideation to delivery.

While being very hands-on, her day to day has been about imagining and exploring solutions to solve specific needs. Her skills set goes anywhere from concept development, 3d modeling, digital fabrication, prototyping, project management, and creative direction. Lea’s approach is based on collaboration, empathy, and curiosity. She loves to turn bold ideas into tangible realities, tackling every problem as a creative challenge.

Using her technical background from a Bachelor in Industrial design at the University of Montreal, Lea specialised her practice early on towards a passion for interactive and immersive experiences as well as new technologies.

She loves to keep herself busy, learn a lot and live a highly caffeinated life. For the past few years, she has been spending most of her free time learning about electronics and hardware. Lea also loves new media arts, biking and hanging out with friends.
