I recently graduated my master degree in industrial design at the Royal Danish Academy of Design in Copenhagen. I am now looking for opportunities to share my creativity and knowledge and to learn more about how to create good design.

 

I am a designer who is passionate about finding solutions to peoples problems that feels like natural nodes in our everyday flow of life. I aim to create objects that enhance the human experience and strive towards better life quality for all.

 

From my 1+ years of experience as a designer I have worked on refining my craftsmanship to be able to bring creative solutions into finished products. I love working together with people and value the stories people have shared with me. I believe stories are the foundation to good design.

Here is my education.

As a designer I strive to create a symbiosis between form and function to make people's lives more enjoyable.

Below is a little about myself and my aspiration.

Master studies in industrial design

Umeå Institute of Design

Intensive course in industrial design

Luleå University of Technology

Bachelor industrial design engineer

At the design academy I focused on developing my design process and my skills to create products that increase our life quality. I had the chance to explore designing for amputees, for professional cleaning and for minimizing our use of resources.

For a year I studied industrial design with a human centred approach together with people with different backgrounds from all around the world. The course consisted of projects in industrial, service, transportation and interaction design.

At LTU I studied ergonomic, technical and aesthetic aspects of design with the person and environment the design is aimed for in focus. From my time in LTU I learned a lot of the skills related to CAD, manufacturing techniques and ergonomic assessments I use today.
