Jelte Friso Knossen

Interaction designer in Umeå Sweden


I'm a curious, playful designer who likes to explore tech and its empowering capabilities. I love to create concepts and bring them into (virtual) reality through visualization, experience or storytelling. My strengths lie in reflecting on what I am doing, creating tangible and digital prototypes, and having a user-centred approach. I am an excellent listener, I take a calm, active, playful but critical attitude during work. I like to tackle difficult problems and don´t shy away from a challenge.
