As a strategic designer, I help companies set goals beyond the monetary ones. Materializing the sustainable purpose delivers more happy customers. This improves the DNA of the company and ultimately improves finances.
The basic rules:
👉🏾 It's about helping people by solving THEIR problem.
👉🏾 Increasing efficiency comes later.
For 15 years my focus has been on accessibility and sustainability:
If 0 out of 10 users can access my offer, how much revenue will it drive?
How many orders will companies receive if 0 out of 10 users find value in the offer?
That's why I submit myself to human and planet centred approaches.The main focus here is on ethical design.
And users come first.
