I am Marina, born in Germany and currently based in Valais in Switzerland. 🇨🇭 There was always something that attracted me to traveling, nature, and sustainability. That led to some exciting years in Austria and Switzerland, where I worked in tourist destinations and explored the surroundings on skis, hiking shoes, or my bike. Seeing the impact of tourism on nature motivated me to study in Switzerland and become an environmental engineer.
What does this have to do with UX design? 🤔 Well, after finishing my studies I started working in the Swiss livestock farming industry on the interface between IT and agriculture. As a digital native and member of the management team at Qualitas AG I started to focus on improving the digital experience of our customers by establishing online marketing and social media communication and by improving the brand and look & feel of the corporate website.
In the last few years, I shifted my focus more and more towards product design and stepped into the exciting world of user experience. I completed a bootcamp for basic coding skills and learned about the influence of design on SEO. Since the beginning of 2020, I am member of the IxDF and currently, I am a student of Memorisely’s UX/UI design bootcamp, to continue growing my skills in all disciplines related to digital design. 👩🏻💻
I am inspired by exploring the world and nature and live a #digitalnomad life, sometimes working in my van and often from our cozy place in the middle of the Swiss alps. 🏔 These experiences are packed into stories on the blog steinmanndli.ch.
Oh, and I love creating real products like little cuddle toys on the sewing machine. Also somehow design-related, right? 😄
