Visionary Product Designer and creator of wearable tech accessories
What does the future look like on your team?
Stephanie is from Curacao in the Dutch Caribbean currently living in Seattle, WA .
She enjoys solving complex business problems with creative strategy and meaningful design. I integrate brilliant campaigns with emerging technologies.
She is a creative leader focused on product design strategy and often functions as an idea catalyst between customer experience and R&D.
Stephanie advocates for solutions to real world problems that can be solved with technology. It has always been an imperative for her to keep sight of a product’s past and present trends in order to make visionary assumptions and predictions of where we are heading.
By being member to innovation teams and think tanks within a range of advertising and technology companies including; Moxie, Razorfish, Turner Sports, Oracle, Stanley Black & Decker and now Microsoft she has learned future proofing success is reflected in product releases that are borne from empathetic listening, meets the user where they are and enhances design standards.
She believes we can innovate with and design solutions for the world by understanding the people and the problems each unique social and economic reality brings to the table in context.
As technology changes and evolves our understanding of how we as users, benefit and interact with it must also change, evolve or perish.S.
Diversity matters when designing for equitable futures.
Envisioning Creative Futures, to me, means understanding how emerging technology and the presence or lack of privacy can be an asset or hinderance to future creativity. We can innovate and design solutions for the world by understanding the people and the problems each unique social and economic reality brings to the table collectively.
I am an advocate of diversity and inclusion in design processes because of the value it brings to conversations surrounding innovation, foremost, to human existence and the eventual products and services it will continue to inform and inspire.
Privacy matters for creativity and innovation.
As we in the tech industry continue to develop and embrace AI, Augmented intelligence, Augmented Reality through ubiquitous computing etc. We also have to to acknowledge we have been pushing the boundaries of privacy laws and what privacy means to the individual. These ideas can be championed in your company for the sake of beneficent technological advancement and the preservation of authentic human growth and creativity.
