Claudia Russo is an adaptable designer who believes that the most valuable and unforgettable experiences come from the moment we decide to let go of what we “know.” Her interest in industrial design led her across the world to rural Taiwan. Due to the language barrier, she became adept at noticing the subtleties of human emotions and grew more perceptive of non-verbal gestures.
She first tapped into aspects of interaction design while working for a small technology company in Taiwan. Although she had no prior knowledge of coding, this new language felt natural to her. She found coding to be an intriguing process that motivated her to continuously challenge herself. Her most recent project helped develop a platform connecting companies with international bloggers.
Claudia has learned that addressing the emotional needs of others is the first step towards behavioral change. She feels a strong sense of responsibility to understand the emotional responses that emanate from the products she creates, and aims to deliver environments that foster positive interactions.
