Hi! My name is Anna Curtin. I am a product designer from Cork City.
My first taste of design was when I was a child playing with LEGO, such a simple concept shaped my creativity and trial and error mentality. Product Design has built on this and has developed my understanding on what design actually is. I have had many opportunities and have been exposed to all kinds of design from physical to digital.
UX and Design Research are areas in which I am highly interested, as I love to create products that are simple and intuitive for all users.
For me, the design process is a journey from the problem area to the solution through research, ideation, user testing and development.
I am looking forward to carrying on my design journey, with the skills that I have learnt from the last four years.
