Design as an ecological redirection practice

I am a Freelance designer (since 2016) with 15+ years of experience in the digital design industry. My practice mixes design thinking, systemic design and UX research. As an intersectional and decolonial feminist, I acknowledge the political dimension of design and use it to aim towards a fairer world where the living and non-living can pursue dignity through existence. As an environmental activist, I practice ecological redirection. As a teacher and free and open source design advocate, I strive for accessible, resilient and emancipatory tech.
