How do I work?
I believe that human-centred design research is necessary. As a designer, I often use a combination of quantitative (e.g. general survey target group) and qualitative research methods (e.g. workshop, reflection prototyping process, group discussion). This approach allows me to complement broad insights from quantitative studies with rich and in-depth insights from qualitative studies. My empathetic and accessible nature helps me to empathize with stakeholders and to understand needs from different perspectives.
I experience that my creativity is especially sparked through conversations, by observing real-world situations, and currently also through generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools (text to image). In the design process, I consciously implement a phase of experience prototyping to get insights while having a hands-on approach, which is something I really enjoy (e.g. Ecorbis, Cibus). In this, my down-to-earth personality helps me to analyze and critically reflect on the outcomes of the process. Lastly, I developed skills to design systems that can be evaluated autonomously in the field (e.g. Ecorbis, Cibus).
