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, 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.

Let’s change the world together! ︎
