"Yes, way down deep inside
I've got a dream!"
The story of our little personalized cars started between 2011 and 2014 probably in a train trip from Bern to Basel in Switzerland. I live in Basel and during those years I use to commute every Friday and Saturday to go in class to earn a degree in Interaction Design. Very often I came back with loads of new ideas clashing in my brain.
I started this program because I wanted to open my mind for something new. I didn't know if I would be interested in the lectures at the beginning. The brochure seemed to advertise a pretty interesting program, that was the first time that program was offered.
I thought about quitting, or doing something else many times, but little by little I discovered new ways of thinking, broader vision on things.
After a couple of month, I discovered a main issue that eventually remained et until the end of my 3 years studying for everyone taking that class: the term “interaction design” was very broad and everyone seemed to have an other definition of what it is. I was obviously not happy with the definition offered by my studies, and this brought me to read a lot in books, on blogs, social media feeds, to follow some companies, even watch some movies on the topic to find my way of what "designing interaction" could be, and mostly what I wanted to do with it.
Comète Company is a part of what I want do do with it… Trying new things, building something and moreover learn along the path.
When I talk about this ideas to Oriane, my sister, she was enthusiastic about it form the first hour. I knew I found the best partner to step foot in start-up world.
So here we are… We are launching Comète Company!
