Hi, my name is Maria. I’m a senior designer focused on delivering innovation for sustainability, within service and digital product design. I’m an advocate of user-centred design, passionate about designing services that solve adaptive problems in a collaborative and agile way. I’ve been leading teams and delivering innovative design solutions for more than 5 years. I’m a hands-on designer and enjoy leading by example through doing the user research, facilitating the workshops and sketching the possible solutions.

I’m currently doing my PhD part-time based on the research I did for my master degree in sustainable design and social innovation. I have been working in the design sector as a freelancer, entrepreneur and design researcher for about 10 years. I enjoy working on challenging projects in dynamic environments, but what I like the most is to collaborate (and have fun) with inspiring and talented people.
