Hello, I’m Tina, a product designer at Nationwide Building Society.
I grew up in the capital of Latvia, at the crossroads of Nordic and Slavic cultures. In 2008, I moved to the UK to study Visual Communications at the University of Westminster. After graduating, I spent five years working in the media industry before specialising in visual and product design.
In my work, form always follows function, as I care how things work before considering how they look. I am an advocate of ethical and sustainable design and always put users' needs above profit margins.
My interests include accessibility, behavioral psychology, climate change, data visualisation, ethical non-monogamy, facts, games, infodemic, Japan, knowledge libraries, linguistics, mountains, narrative structures, Oxford comma, percussions, quality over quantity, road trips, Soviet Sci-Fi, trail running, and the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
You can speak to me in English, Russian, Latvian and (some) French. Get in touch!
