Nicolas Solerieu — visual designer

* SLRNCL is just my last and first name without vowels — that's it — I don't have a personal brand. It also happens to be hard to spell and remember, which is great when I'm not looking for a job.

The work stuff

I'm currently doing some web design stuff at Github. I'm used to working in fast-paced environments and collaborating with interdisciplinary teams. I'm a generalist focused on craft and driven by quality. My design approach is realistic and creative, supported by skills in frontend development — all that to say that I know how to translate my ideas into HTML and CSS (sometimes even a bit of Javascript if you let me use jQuery). My specialty is web design but have been enjoying creating all sorts of visuals like icons and prototypes. I also occasionnally dabble with illustrations. You can see my most recent stuff on Dribbble or the few case studies I have up on Behance.

The rest

I was born and raised in France, then in late 2016, this lovely lady found me on dribbble and flew me to the Bay Area to join Opendoor's design team where I spent 5 years. I do a bunch of other things on the side like writing low-quality posts, collecting quotes and sharing pretentious photos. I even got married and developed and deep appreciation for eggs, cycling and stretching. Aside of that I sometimes add to my old moodboard and have been drawing a bit too.


I'm clearly interested in too many things so I'm trying to slow down and be more present. Literally slow down by riding less, using less stuff in general and learn to appreciate little things. Like growing vegetables (I love tubers) they teach me patience. Feel free to check my Linkedin if you are into this kind of things or send me an email like a normal person
