Hey, I'm Rebecca.
I’m a Product Designer who enjoys translating thoughtful design strategies into beautiful and impactful experiences. 7+ years working with a range of different clients.
Except for doing design, I’m currently into quantitative data analysis, improving my coding skills and growing knowledge about wine (but not at the same time).
It all began...
In high school, where my passion for design first took root. I found joy in creating presentations, experimenting with typography, and my favorite project of all, designing a newspaper magazine. In art class, I would spend hours exploring different materials, textures, and techniques. This allowed me to delve into a world of imagination, where bringing shape and color to ideas was both challenging and rewarding. I was fascinated by it all.
Despite my art teacher's suggestion to apply to art school, I pursued studies in economics. However, after a year, I realized that I missed being creative. That's when I discovered the Bachelor program in Digital Design and Innovation created by award-winning Service Designer and Human-Computer Interaction researcher, Pontus Wärnestål. It was a game-changer for me. I had an epiphany that I could use design methodology to solve business problems.
Combining my design training with my economics education has helped shape me into the designer I am today. I obsess over the details that make a design lovable, while still staying true to business values.
