Design & Research | Facilitation | Workshops

I am making the world a better place by being at the forefront of innovative technology. I work within a wide range of tasks that involve me in both the analysis and creation of solutions.

My versatile toolbox from design thinking as well as my broad skillset and experience within the design field, makes me a great project and workshop facilitator. This is enhanced by my skills with live sketching that I use in my work as a visual facilitator. Read more on my visual thinking blog here. Read more about my efficient workshop planning tool Workshop canvas.

I am especially interested in innovative opportunities that involve:
the SDG’s, Circular design, machine learning and Internet of things artifacts (especially smart Jewelry).

Skills

These are skills that are part of my Designer toolbox and I want to expand further.

Project management

Work with people and projects, to reach a specific goal within a timeframe. I have worked with variations of especially agile processes.

Facilitation & Co-creation Workshops

My specialty is planning structured co-creative workshops that are effective and engaging – I either make the participants create deliverables along the way, or I capture the highlights visually as a graphic facilitator. I want to work more with Design Sprints.

User research

I conduct Interviews, questionnaires, observations and cultural probes. I analyse its results and show it visually in fx. storyboards and infographs.

Visual Design

I have experience with both print and digital design. I focus on communication and designing for a target audience, rather than pure aesthetics. Because of my skills as a visual facilitator, I excel at making complex information simple fx. in power points and infographs.

Design thinking

I use a process called design thinking to solve problems, by going through 5 phases : Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test.

Illustration and sketching

I visualize and make complex information simple. Timelines, infographs, storyboards and comics. Handdrawn and colourful vector look – I can match your visual identity.

Use them for your next pitch presentation, book covers, meeting notes and more.
