Field research for design and strategy
Sociological method and critical thinking to discover the true role of technological artifacts in people’s lives. Often explorative, mostly qualitative (in English, German, and Finnish) — always people before technology. Driven by discovery of realities people couldn’t even articulate themselves.

Looking back at two decades of designing concepts and interfaces for the web, I combine my research-based approach with craftfully designed architectures, concepts, UIs and more. Experienced coach and educator on design strategy, concept development, usability, and accessibility.
Passionate code tinkerer and seasoned web designer
A “designer who codes” for as long as I can remember, I love building my own prototypes and trying out new techniques. Deep appreciation for the web since 1996, always happy for opportunities to do some artisanal website development (some call it “old school”, which I take as a compliment).
