Hello, I’m Céline Semaan Vernon.

I am a web-native designer skilled in many aspects of design: human behavior, interaction design, information architecture, content strategy and visual design; I can make magic happen digitally (in all these web-related roles) and physically (as an event promoter/coordinator).

I love and support Open cultureOpen Web StandardsCreative Commons and the Open web. I was born in Lebanon, grew up in Montreal, studied in Beirut and Paris, specialized in Inter Media and Cyber Arts in Montreal, worked in New York and have been involved in promoting Creative Commons Lebanon and Montreal.  I love people, and am passionate about freedom and culture. Recently launched my fashion line mixing Open Data and Fashion under the brand SlowFactory.com.
