Hi, my name is Edwina. 
I am a User Experience and Service Designer from Ireland. I have worked in agencies and studios in London, Dublin and Berlin. I'm currently completing my Masters in Digital Experience Design at Hyper Island.

 

I have over ten years experience in a range of design disciplines. I began my career making models, sets and props for theatre and architecture. I have worked for the last five years as an Art Director and Designer in advertising. In my last role, I was the Lead Art Director on the Vodafone and Guinness accounts. During my time as a designer, I clocked up air miles, working for international clients in London, Dublin and Berlin.

I am at my best designing viable products and services for human needs, through user research and iterative prototyping. I am at my happiest creating visual concepts and engaging stories in various mediums. And always with play in mind.
