Hi I'm Alicja (Ala for short). I'm a London based, independent human-centered design consultant, I work internationally, splitting my time between collaborating with large corporates and design-led tech startups contributing to product development, communication and creating strategic, insightful user experiences.

My approach to work is playful and prototype driven. I aim to work fast and stay as agile as possible, ask the right questions, imagine and bring to life possible futures and highlight opportunities. I believe in life long learning, this often drives me to work with people from backgrounds very different from my own and get involved in a wide variety of projects in diverse contexts. 

Most recently I have been working with design and strategy consultants Doblin and Ideo. Please get in touch for if you would like to find out about a specific project or have a collaboration in mind.
