about me

I am a multidisciplinary designer with an education in Industrial Design, currently exploring Interaction Design at the Umeå Institute of Design. I love to work on the aesthetics of interaction as well as form. I've spent my last internship at LAYER in London, after that I've begun to work as a freelance graphic design at Burea A/O in Graz. Recently I've started to broaden my human-centered design perspective to a design-for-all-life design approach by thinking in larger systems instead of just human convenience. Emerging social movements, developments in

pop- & subculture as well as trends in art & design influence my work and explorations.
