About me

I strive for design that is meaningful, serves people's needs and enables delightful experiences. Working with evolving technology and stakeholders from different disciplines allows me to constantly explore and test new ideas and solutions.

 

My background is a hybrid between Swiss modernism and the cutting-edge design school of CalArts in Los Angeles, CA.
As a senior designer at Interbrand and other Swiss creative agencies I continued to work for many years to serve global brands, medium-sized enterprises, NGOs and governmental institutions. Different services included conceptualization and visual design for corporate communication, brand identity, marketing campaigns and basically for the last 10+ years an almost exclusive focus on web and mobile applications.


Since 2014 I moved back to California, to live in the SF Bay Area, and have been working as a freelance designer. Currently I am a part-time instructional associate for the UXD class at General Assembly in San Francisco. Alongside I am also a mentor at  Coursera.org for the human-centered design online class.

Over the last two years I made sure to refresh my skills and gathered certifications in user experience design, user research and design thinking methods.

I am happy to reply to your questions. Please feel free to contact me.

 Thanks! Karen
