I'm Jean-Christophe Naour, a french Interaction Designer based in Seoul (South-Korea). During these past years, I've been developing interaction concepts, interfaces, programs and motion design for mobile phones, mp3 players, television, gps, installations, etc. My scope is continually expanding, in an effort to, ultimately, go beyond the screen. My curiosity and enthusiasm for new media encourages me everyday to push boundaries and discover new possibilities.

Specialties: Make moving & static images, build interactive experiences.
