My name is Kayla Case & I am a 29-year-old designer living in Stockholm, Sweden and currently studying Design Lead at Hyper Island. Originally from California, my move to Stockholm 3.5 years ago was sparked by my annual summer trips to visit my mother’s family in Sweden. Thanks mom for the inspo!
My design background is rooted in Branding, but I am looking to explore a new path within User Experience. A user-centered approach merges my passion for thoughtful design and helping people, with my graphic design background. I am drawn to design driven by research, design stirred by intent. Having this intent grounded around user needs helps us as designers get to the real root of the problem, finding inspiration to guide us in imagining & designing the most helpful solutions.
I am a firm believer in building strong team dynamics & I really value true collaboration. I strive to build openness within teams where we can share, give feedback, explore, fail a bit testing crazy concepts and have a darn good time doing it.
