Hi I'm Jenny!


I'm a Product Designer from Sweden with a passion for user experiences and visual communication. I strive to stay curious, openminded and able to work in teams. As a designer my aim is to design relevant solutions improving our way of life and our society weather they are physical, digital or intertwined. I believe great design is much more than just good aesthetics, it's the way we interact with objects and the way they impact our way of life. In my eyes a great design solution showcase a multidisciplinary collaboration where every aspect of design has been taken into account and stripped down to its essentials.

 

 

In June 2018 I'm graduating from Umeå Institute of Design

with a masters in Advanced Product Design.
