Hi, I'm Torunn,
creative product designer and coder

I believe the intersection of design and data is where the the magic happens to solve customer problems and drive meaningful business results.

Over the past 8 years I've led mission-critical product design and research projects at Stitch Fix, working with executives to define business strategy as an individual contributor.

Before that I've been designing products for a variety of start-ups e.g Givey and led design teams at agencies.

What do I do?

  • Strategy and innovation
    • Triangulate qual and quant research to identify and frame client problems
    • Define which client-centric solutions to pursue with the highest potential business impact
    • Break the problem down and prioritize for design and other functions (eg. copy, creative curation, engineering, data science)
    • Identify where teams can push themselves to truly explore what's possible
