Surprise me, I love surprises

Since 2008 I have been working in agencies in Stockholm and New York with customers like Electrolux, M&M, Bonnier, Pernod Ricard, SAS, Telia, Volkswagen, The Royal Opera, H&M, PwC and Aspia.

I am passionate about creating solutions that are simple and fun to use. I'm used to work in agile processes with teams and I love to be close to the development. Last years I have mainly focusing on building services. I'm in my best habitat when I get to work with kind like-minded people in a creative environment.

It's important for me to constantly get new impressions and surprises to evolve as a designer and person. I went to film school, studied music and had big plans to become a film composer. Today, I love to spend time in my home studio, composing music. During 2017 I also attended an online MasterClass within Film Scoring with Hans Zimmer.

Other than that, I’m continuously working to get my smart home even smarter. Next step: The coffee machine.

Testimonials

I worked with Susanna for more than a year in a demanding and interesting project, building a completely new online tool for businesses. Susanna is a skilled service designer with an eye for details as well as the overall concept, always with the end user in mind. She’s prestigeless and team oriented, always trying to learn more and to show others the power of UX. Looking forward to work with her again.
