Design Leader, UX Strategist and Product Designer
I support organizations in building and optimizing design teams.
Focusing on all levels of work - ranging from supporting the business strategy to hands-on designing.
I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
During the last 10 years, I went through a journey of focusing on the purely visual aspect of design - all the way to solving business problems through innovation and design thinking.
Focused on finding holistic solutions to complex challenges, by redefining how problems are approached and solved. Engaged at the intersection where design, business and technical aspect meet, my focus is on helping the business achieve their goals and grow.
How do I do this? By being involved in almost every step of the product design cycle, from hosting ideation/concept workshops, creating user flows, building rapid prototypes, facilitating user testing sessions to building design teams from scratch and growing design talent.
