My name is Malin Engvall and I am a product designer. I am originally Swedish, but currently living in Oslo where I am doing my master thesis at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design.
My goal in every project is to create a fantastic product experience and therefore I always design with the user in focus. In addition to user understanding, my strengths are to create new solutions through creative thinking and a sharp aesthetic eye.
My master thesis is about living conditions in asylum centers in Norway. I am exploring how product design can solve everyday problems and strengthen the feeling of belonging.
