Timour is an information designer at Voilà. From the processing and the manipulation of the data to the conceptualization of the visuals, Timour takes pleasure first and foremost in decomplexing information. Rigorous, curious and creative, he loves nothing more than bringing each client to their “Eureka!” moment, the critical shift from incomprehension to knowledge.
Information design has been a common thread in Timour’s career.
With a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in human resources, Timour is particularly attached to a human-centered approach and to the structures that surround them. An adept of systems thinking and complexity theories, Timour naturally turned to consulting roles.
He first started by working on the design and implementation of leadership programs. He then established his own consulting practice as an information designer and data analyst. Finally, he developed an impact evaluation practice in a social impact consulting firm.
He has worked for a wide variety of clients in the public, private and community sectors. Accustomed to communicating in French, English and Spanish, he has worked for clients in Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
Timour joined Voilà: because he was impressed by the organization’s achievements and their focus on social and environmental justice issues. Timour currently resides in Montreal, also known as Tiohtià:ke and Mooniyaang, on traditional, ancestral and unceded land of First Nations Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawks) and ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ (Anishinabewaki).
