Boris Perisset has agreed to support Wedecide as design co-founder.
Boris studied graphic design in Luzern and was owner and creative director of Feinheit AG, 2006-2015. To return from project acquisition and project management to more creative tasks, he redimensioned himself into Atelier Perisset in 2016 and started teaching at the F&F School Zurich in the same year. Over all these years, he has had a large number of political clients and supported some campaigns with his experience.
Together with friends, Boris has made some own attempts towards improving political processes. He sees the Wedecide model as an answer to the growing gap of influence between the digitalized global economy and the national political systems.
His experience both as a visual creator and as a process-oriented enterpreneur helps to make Wedecide become real.
Christof Täschler has agreed to support Wedecide as design co-founder.
Christof studied graphic design in St. Gallen and, together with two colleagues, founded the interdisciplinary design collective Kabeljau.ch. He is the author of 2 design books and has taught design at different schools in Zurich and Buenos Aires. He realizes web and print publications and is a dedicated lover of the Swiss style in branding and design generally.
Christof has with great interest helped some political initiatives to develop their visual identity. Based on his awareness of critical social and political developments today, he is interested in bringing the Wedecide model into reality.
When André Golliez joined the project in early 2017, there was not yet anything like “Wedecide”. André had just got a mail that put the not-so-great 2016 into perspective with an outlook to better days, and he wanted to know more, and later decided to offer his advice, experience, and network.
André started with a master in computer science from ETH Zurich in 1986 and spent many years as IT manager in the engineering industry and the financial sector, and since 1999 as self-employed IT consultant for large institutions searching expertise in IT strategy and IT governance. From 2004 to 2009, he was President of the Swiss Computer Science Society.
André is a dedicated data politician. In recent years, he co-founded and still presides the Swiss Open Data Association Opendata.ch, and the Swiss Data Alliance, a non-partisan initiative for data-driven innovation, growth and well-being in Switzerland. He believes in the usefulness of the Wedecide model and aims to help it becoming realized from small to large scale.
Enrico Tenaglia, Ph.D., has agreed to support Wedecide as co-founder for the area of project management.
Enrico studied biochemistry and molecular biosciences in Torino and in Madrid, with a research stay in Toronto and finally leaving the Spanish capital with a Ph.D. with honors. Since 2014, he is research scientist at the EPFL Laboratory of Life Science Electronics in Lausanne, and an experienced manager of complex research projects.
His interest in social sciences, politics and societal participation have brought Enrico to supporting Wedecide. At the moment, he explores the chances of using the Wedecide model for improving the representation, participation and responsibility of migrants in Swiss communities.
