About me

I am a BA Product Design graduate from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London. I have been working at the Resaerch/Design/Innovation Studio based in London for over a year. I had been continuously travelling between Warsaw and London as a Brand Strategist, working on innovation projects. My strong and irresistible passion is interior car design, which is strictly combined with the process of reflecting its brand identity. Aspects of research, cultural associations, creation of form, all purely integrated with the Code of the Brand. Industrial design course at Central Saint Martins primarly introduced me with that scheme of working: exploring my 3D thinking, while researching, analysing, testing with users, modelling, again testing, prototyping, setting material specification and manufacturing processes. Attention to user and its certain needs, application of form which will attract but won’t be applied without the reason, aspects of sustainability and innovation. I strongly believe in focusing on attitudes on a micro level and comparing them to a macro understanding of wider socio-cultural trends. Mapping those antipodal perspectives allows to see emerging behaviors, therefore ability to brainstorm and design new ways of thinking and acting! Constant drive for innovation motivates me, as it is a part of learning and gaining better understanding of certain subjects, crucial part of a design process or any brand identity outline. However it is just a beginning path, I am seeking more experience in User Experience/Innovation field as that environment I consider as a daily catalyst of my inspiration and energy. I believe that proper understanding of user and their needs by looking at their core values, aims and daily lifestyle is crucial. Accurate wide understanding helps to take up new innovation routes. Following my recent experience and strong ambition to follow my passion, I am ready to gain more knowledge and be able to broaden achieved experience as well as to participate in creative thinking in order to stymulate and generate meaningful insights and design unique user experiences.

  • Research on women’s self-recovery from breast cancer through alternative methods and through complementary medicine. Breast cancer is one the most common cancers among women in UK reaching 30% in overall cancer rates. It would not be a matter of anxiety and fear unless the methods of prevention and cure had been known. Through my research I intend to find out what methods of emotional self-recovery are the most successful and why. Is there anything we can improve to motivate more and give source of power to recover and heal the mind quicker? Analysis is be held among women and their emotions, ways of understanding their experience through different therapies and activities and how product design could encourage them for further self-realization.

  • Researcher, UX Designer, Brand Strategist. At studioINTO each project had been different and individually tailored to the brand we were working with and their expectations, but the main goal in all of the ventures was to innovate. Whether it was an analysis of certain market, action strategy or design, it was achieved through research, which in each case gave variety of facts and insights about brand and its users; who they are, what they feel, think, want. All of those analyzed and gathered helped to create ideas for the next steps of change. Ideas narrowed to the concepts, explored, tested, followed by one concept further exploration and then ideation. Whether it is an innovation strategy or creation of a new design the initial core states research; of current market landscape, culture, trends, behaviours confronted with stereotypes, opinions and facts.
