This is the online portfolio from Tabea Kowalski, an industrial designer based in Zürich, Switzerland.



I’m Tabea, an industrial designer turned user experience researcher from Zürich, Switzerland. Currently, I‘m working as a freelancer in digital experience at Sonova AG. What excites me is working with demanding target groups and see the impact of the design in the faces of the users. I therefore love working near and with the end-user to develop innovative concepts. Thinking out of the box and getting inspired by real problems and feedback is what feeds my creative passions. My projects are characterized by careful research of the customer profile as well as expert recommendations.
In my free time, I like to discover old swiss traditions, go hiking and collect spoons, clothing patterns and music from all over the world.
