Meshed and processed: Miguel

Meshed and processed, meet our team in 3D! We're always pushing digital boundaries and trying out new technologies. It's part of our DNA. So when one of our designers Joey told us about his photogrammetry experiments, we immediately thought: why not digitize it all? Joey converted a tremendous amount of in house intrigue into 3D visualisation, and polished our colleagues with Photogrammetry. In the coming weeks, you'll get to know our very own dreamteam on this page. Keep an eye out for updates!

What is your educational background?

My first degree was in music, and I went travelling in South America immediately after getting it. When I got back, I thought: what now? I soon found out that it can be hard to earn enough money in the music business, so I started looking around what else was out there. I have always been a bit of a nerd, and people in my social circle often asked me for help with IT stuff. That's how I ended up studying computer science. I was especially interested in the front-end, because it allows you to be creative, and you see results immediately.

What is your secret skill?

Producing music and playing the guitar. That's also where that tech-savvy side of me comes out, because I work with various programs. I'm not really active on making music right now but i want to pick it up again. I want to experiment with combining electronic music and live instruments. In music theory class, I learned that combining certain chords can trigger something in the brain. It would be cool if I could apply this theory by making a track that can be played at parties and touches people. Who knows!

What was a project that you really liked?

During my internship, I did a project for NEMO and the ESA (European Space Agency). It was an interactive game to explain how gravity works to children. It was right up my alley. I love science, could make something for kids, and did my own research into how gravity works.

How do you like working at Fabrique?

After graduating in computer science, I quickly started working for myself. Business was good, but I missed working with colleagues and I felt I could still learn a lot at a company. A friend (Fabriquer Jens) had advised me to drop by and get to know Fabrique. When I started to look into Fabrique a bit more, I found out that they have a great portfolio. The museum clients in particular appeal to me, because I value projects that make a social or cultural contribution. I get to create software that I fully support. I am currently working on a website for a museum in Geneva. The design is very arty, which I like. It's nice to see how designers work and what they produce. The designs they create are often still a bit static, and it is very cool to bring them to life with animation!
