Mouna Andraos

Co-founder

Daily tous les jours


Mouna is co-founder of Montréal-based studio Daily tous les jours. For the past four years, Daily tous les jours' focus has been on creating collective experiences that inspire people to become active participants in the world around them. Their work takes on different shapes: from urban interventions and planning, to events, to software applications or short films.

Daily tous les jours' work has won numerous international recognitions including the grand prizes of the 2013 Interaction Design Awards (IxDA) and the 2014 UNESCO Creative Cities Design Awards for Young Talents. Mouna and co-founder Melissa Mongiat were also awarded the 2011 Phyllis Lambert Design Award by the city of Montréal.

Mouna is active in the design and new media communities, giving lectures and workshops in places such as SXSW, Leaders in Software and Arts (LISA) in New York, Tangible Embedded & Embodied Interaction International Conference, the Walker Art Center, Nagoya Design Center and the Banff New Media Institute. She also teaches computational arts and design at Concordia University and UQUAM's school of design.
Prior to founding Daily tous les jours, Mouna worked under the label Electronic Crafts exploring the intersection of mass-produced electronics and handmade crafts, in order to create playful, sustainable or participatory objects. Her web-based work for Montréal interactive agency Bluesponge also won numerous international recognitions including prizes from Communication Arts, ID magazine, Webby, Best of Show at the SXSW Festival and a CyberLion in Cannes.

Mouna holds a Masters degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) and a Bachelors degree from Concordia University. She is also an alumnus of Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology in New York City.
