About

 

Hi, I’m Helen, a data-driven designer based in Berlin, Germany!

I have over 6 years experience working across the world in Germany, Italy, India, France, U.K and Switzerland for industries ranging from fashion & lifestyle e-commerce brands (Urbanara, Chicasual), through to B2B enterprise software companies (Craft.co, Contentful.com), plus many more.

I am passionate about user experience, user research and design thinking methodologies and I’m inspired by yoga & mediation, travelling and learning about different cultures.
