Convincing the world of the social value of experience design.

What is the WOW of Tinker? I coordinate PR and communication, and I aim to generate worldwide attention for our projects, both online and off. Did I mention that you can follow us on social media? I am a born networker, trying to create the right buzz in words and iconic images. When am I satisfied? When visitors exclaim ‘wow, this experience has really made a difference!’ 


What (experience) design can do. As far as I'm concerned, the added social value is crystal clear. We need physical places that evoke wonder and make us look at the world through different eyes. That's when we get moving. Now we just need to let people know. And that has become my mission.
