.intent, Senior UX Designer

I finished cultural studies and then took a roundabout way through translating, coordinating translations, and managing projects until I settled in the field of UX. I love looking for challenges and solving them through design. I enjoy the diversity of the UX environment and the designers themselves. I'm against producing digital trash and pointless solutions to problems nobody has. I agree with Jared Spool that design is the rendering of intent, and I believe that the intent should be to do something meaningful and not just something that's possible.
