Susanna Averpil

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. To make something difficult easy. 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 have been practising music for almost my whole life. It started with playing the violin in a symphonic orchestra. When I was 14, my parents bought me my first guitar and that was the starting point of composing my own music. I later on attended high school of music, went to film school and had big plans to become a film composer. Eventually I learned that the industry wasn't that easy. Today, I love to spend time in my home studio and other than that, I’m continuously working to get my smart home even smarter.

During 2017 I also attended an online MasterClass within Film Scoring with Hans Zimmer.

I also love science, even though I'm not an engineer. I love how we are able to fly to the moon, how we can observe the universe with the Hubble telescope. I believe the core of all designers has to be exploration. And now it’s more important than ever, that we are responsible for technology not being used with bad will. I simply see myself as an explorer and gatekeeper.

I love:

  • My team. Without them our work would not be possible.

  • To find ideas and inspiration from other areas than the field I work within.

  • To try out different tools tailored for teambuilding and group dynamics.

  • When I am evolving as a person
