HEI.

I am a Norwegian designer with a multi-disciplinary skillset; ranging  from social responsible design using ethnographic and design thinking methods, workshops to commercial print, illustrations and graphic design.

My approach to interaction design explores the relationship between humans, technology, and society – where the design strives to create valuable and meaningful experiences for the people engaging with the design with the human/user always in the centre. 

If you have any questions, or would like to hear more  please get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
