Hello! 

I’m Hanna, a transdisciplinary designer for social impact living in New York City and Berlin.

I aim to improve lives and create social change through my work by combining Graphic Design, UX/UI Design, Human-centered Design/Strategy and Psychology.

I believe that design can be a catalyst for change and a powerful force for positive impact in combination with other disciplines.

In my private projects, I’m finding creative expression in photography and painting, as well as various other mediums. I’m also practicing meditation, yoga and mindfulness techniques and I’m active in several artist communities throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Berlin.

Let’s change the world together! ︎
