She helps entrepreneurs and established companies with completing an identity like a logo, businesscards, webpage and all kinds of promotional materials, healthy and inspiring work environment for more efficiency.
By using lateral thinking she helps you signalizing the essence of a problem and can make the complexity of the problem simple by using visuals. She'll improve your thinking at least 1/4 further to break through the habits of thought.
What I love about being a project manager is that I'm always learning by new encounters. Each project has its own set of challenges, and forces me to constantly change and make adjustments to approach. Plus, I get involved in more than just structure and processes like technology, new markets, appealing products, new concept services, customers and people of any kind.

CORPORATE IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT
Design thinking is a discipline that I use to come up with methods to create a product that is technically feasible and meets the customer's expectations, is business wise viable because it adds value to the customers view and distinguishes from other products in the market.

I'm an all round graphic designer with a focus on corporate identity development. I use various methods to play with and combine words or symbols, images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. The aim is to use visual communication to be problem solving through the use of type, space and image.

Explaining concepts by providing a visual representation that corresponds to the content of the associated text or idea is what I like a lot. The illustration can clarify complicated concepts or objects that are difficult to describe textually. Illustrations can be used in advertisements, greeting cards, posters, books, graphic novels, storyboards, manuals, business, magazines, newspapers, essays, or just as art etc.
