I’m a designer,

Julianna Nevari

… and I do design consulting. My focus is on the user-centered and collaborative workplace and learning environment development, concept making and interior architecture. At the same time, I am learning about new ways to co-create and collaborate with the users and other stakeholders in the Aalto University.

My Story

I believe that we can create stronger design solutions with the user-centered and collaborative design approach.

Furthermore, I believe that change always creates design opportunities that we should not miss. I feel passionately towards strategic co-design and transformation design and finding out the right problem for each challenge with the right methods and tools, of course, together with different stakeholders.

I do (co-) design consulting. I am based in Helsinki and at the moment my office is my home and the Aalto University campus. I am among the enthusiastic and talented students every day, which makes me certain that we have all the tools in our hands – we just need to find the right people to collaborate with and make positive change happen.

 

My design approach

My background is in the field of interior architecture. I am focused on workplace & learning environment development. In my current design profession, my goal is to mix systems, service & experience design to workplace design with the user-centered design approach.
User-centered & Co-design100%
Workplace & Learning environment development90%
System, service & experience design70%
Interior architecture70%

Julianna is very professional in the way she does her work. She has an ability to manage her time, ideate concepts, work with users and analyze information in an efficient way. 

Colleague

I would say that Julianna´s strengths are persistence and positive attitude!

Colleague

User-centredeness

Designing the end-user in mind is about understanding their perspective to the world

Visual way of communicating

I have an ability to make complex problems, ideas or systems tangible

Iterative & flexible processes

I believe that the co-design process should be learning by doing - testing and iterating
