About Tatiana

I am a strategic experience designer specialized in products, spaces, and the near future.

I use human(ity) centered design processes to build digital / physical products and create solutions for complex challenges . I also design the world around the product including the user experience, the art direction, service design touchpoints and explore mediums to effecitively communicate it through presentations, products, exhibitions, podcasts, videos and publications. I have worked for NGOs, startups, brands, educational platforms. I look into design systems as a whole and use design in the decision making process rather than just the support.

I combine design thinking with futures research or the ‘speculative design practice’ and help students and clients understand how to design for the future.

I run a platform under @agreeablefutures to make critical design known to all. Because Design should not only build the future, but challenge it.
