I joined the three day Giant Health Event on day two and three. I had no clue what to expect. I just graduated from Kingston University in MA Communication Design after working as a user experience designer for a few years.

I believe that as a designer it is relevant to be close and help to create a bridge between technology and society.
I had the pleasure to interview Jane Hutchison in April 2017. She is the Co-Founder and Creative Director at Hello Love Studio and Founder of The Hello Beautiful Foundation – an impressive personality. We talked about collaboration, innovation, creativity and of course about the Hello Love Space – a journey of unforeseen restrictions, improvisation, and unexpected opportunities.
I traded my life in a small city for the big adventure, which made me being happy and uncomfortable. Leaving my beloved city Zurich and my job was not easy – but then nothing that is worth it is easy, right? I left behind my family, friends and known environment to start a new chapter in London. In this new chapter, the focus was on learning how to build and run a start-up based on design thinking methods.
