Hello, Hej, Hola. This is my story!

My name is Frida and I have a background in communications, social sciences and business. 

I am studying the Masters degree in Interaction Design at Umeå Institute of Design, situated in the very north of Sweden. As a northern Swede by heart, I am not afraid of all the snow - neither to go snowmobile driving.

Currently I am interning as an interaction designer for a global non-profit branch of Laerdal Medical in Stavanger, Norway. Here I get to challenge myself everyday with designing for people in countries who need it the most. 

I'm particularly interested in our society, sociology, healthcare design, service design and user-centered design. 


I first started my interest in design during the time finishing my Media and Communication studies at Umeå University year 2012. I finished my bachelors degree in Political Science year 2014 and traveled for an internship with business marketing at the Swedish- Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Madrid. I applied to the Industrial Design Intensive Year (IDI) at Umeå Institute of Design. 

During my working years I have experience from editorial, marketing, graphic design and PR. I also worked with yoga, sports and healthcare. This  is something I consider learning the most from - how to grow empathy for people.
