Linda Kraft

I am a UX designer with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Wuppertal, Germany, in Industrial Design, during which I had the privilege to live and work in the US for one year. I will graduate with a Master's degree in Interaction Design from Umeå Institute of Design in June 2023.

Currently I work as part of the design team at Hello Monday, and it has been a great opportunity to work on large design systems and create exciting digital products and experiences. I've been able to work with some amazing clients like Google, Nike, and others.

I love finding and sharing great stories, especially those that shed light on underrepresented topics. That's why I chose sex education as the topic for my bachelor thesis. It is still the project I am most proud of and most excited about. You can hear me talk about it here (German only).

I'm based in Umeå and Malmö 🇸🇪 and try to bake as many breads as I can.
