Designer and founder of the FXDESIGNSTUDIO digital design agency, and also Associate Professor at the University of Valenciennes and Hainaut-Cambresis (FRANCE), Dr. David Bihanic is of the rising generation of design professionals for whom originality refers specifically to their (learning and professional) transversal path. Dr. D. Bihanic is presently Head of the Master's degree in Digital Design and Vice-Director of the laboratory CALHISTE (Culture, Arts/Design, Literature, History of Societies and Foreign Territories). Dr. D. Bihanic examines the new paradigms of information visualization and manipulation of large and complex rich databases - it deals with recent design attempts in order to present multi-dimensional data graphically by mapping data and properties to different visual shapes, colors, and positions (e.g. experimental works which investigate novel ways of exploring information). Dr. D. Bihanic have been working as information designer at Thomson France R&D center. Through this experience, he received the expert status for his studies of systems dealing with the handling and processing of media covered information. Today, his research is mainly on data design, data visualization aesthetics, and creative informatics. His work spans the whole spectrum, from theory to implementation techniques and applications. Author of several papers relating to the new stakes of design, Dr D. Bihanic takes an active part in the evolution and transformations occurring in this field.
