About me

Hello! My name is Todora - a research focused service and interaction designer with a critical and collaborative approach to strategic design. My approach to design follows a process of ethnographic design research, synthesis and data visualisation, which enables design efforts to be human-centric, user-driven, transformative and innovative.
