Who I am + What I believe
I’m a dreamer, an object poetess, and a space narrator.

I graduated Master of Arts in Design Products at the Royal College of Art in London. I have collaborated with international architecture practices in Paris and Prague, and I now work as an independent design consultant.

As a designer, I focus on creations that inspire people by their qualities and exquisite detailing. I love when a project involves several layers, scales or complexity, when a brief aims for change, be it cultural, social or emotional.

What I do
I design beautiful graphics, objects and environments that answer people’s needs. I’m a design facilitator; I help clients to define their un-expressed desires about brand experience, products and spaces. Thanks to user research and design thinking, we tackle briefs that are worth solving.
