As a designer I like to interrogate how we relate to the world surrounding us. My work is all about challenging conventional ideas and beliefs, creating physical representations of information, through interaction and playfulness. My passion lies with people and my talent in connecting dots through exploration and storytelling.

  Feel free to contact me for questions, thoughts or coffee ︎

about me


“Tessa is a very talented and creative designer. She was involved in several development projects in IKEA and we enjoyed working with her and warmly recommend her in both research and conceptual design.”
– Evamaria Rönnegård, design manager, IKEA

“Tessa is highly creative and social. She always brought relevant input with a sharp vision. Her hands on mentality and great energy were fun to work with. No doubt she will touch precisely your desired spot in the empathic design you wish to achieve!”
– Suki de Boer, project coordinator, Droog
