Stéphanie Cardinal

President and founder
HUMÀ design inc.

Passionate about her art, Stephanie believes that creativity, a sense of place and personal narratives are the pillars of architectural and design projects. Known for her creativity and her originality in the elaboration of her unique concepts, she has carved a significant place for herself through the realization of projects where the final product and brand identity become signature pieces and foster new experiential worlds. Her collaborations with a multitude of designers, from the various fields related to those projects, have given her the professional expertise to oversee and realize projects that unite the quality of both the architectural spaces and the design at home and abroad, Stephanie is proud of the expertise that she has gained during more than 15 years of experience in the field.

After completing her studies in Barcelona, she cofounded Humà in 2006. Her goal was to develop a creative studio focused on a human approach, innovation, and quality, while adhering to rigorous standards of excellence and entrepreneurship.  Humà won several important awards for prestigious clients, such as Bloomberg.

In addition to interior design projects, she has worked on many branding projects such as restructuring the International Commercial Pier of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, branding many sectors of Concordia University, many residential projects and most recently the Rockland Centre.
