Hi there! I’m HannaK, a Finland-based UX designer. I have an education in usability and design, and got into UX because I love solving problems and making things work.
The focus of my work is always on the user. I belive that without studying both users and the use environment it is impossible to make a great product. Finding the right questions and methods for user research and including the user in the work throughout the whole design process is the key to success.
I am a very visual person, and used to work in an advertising agency for a while. One of the things that intrigued me the most during that time was logo design, which transfers directly into icon design in my current work. Altogether, I think that the visual side is crucial for a good, working interface. It can guide the user towards key functions and help him find what he is looking for. Not to mention how it can make the whole process more enjoyable.
On my time off I like to do sports and spend time outdoors. I chose contact sport because I enjoy challenges and don’t mind pushing myself out of the comfort zone every now and then. Recently, I have also developed an interest for climbing mountains.
