About

I’m an Austrian digital product designer with 3+ years of experience. I have both led and been involved in all phases of projects, from effective strategy to aesthetic visual design. My focus is to deliver holistic user experiences that solve a problem, create memories, build trust, form new habits and inspire.

When I am not seeing patterns or designing products you can find me windsurfing on the Swedish west coast, reading about the human mind, painting, or building stuff.

We all know the feeling. The identity crisis that comes with being a designer is not easy to overcome. Somehow we are solving problems for others all the time, but when it comes to ourselves it feels impossible.

Unconventional designer by morning, surfer by noon

Hi, I’m Lydia Jenewein. An Austrian that got stuck in Varberg.

In my over 3 years as a designer I’ve been on many projects short, long, tall, wacky, chaotic, calm – nothing is to scary for me!  A box that makes your idea heard? Magical Bluetooth light control? A fun learning platform kids? Sure thing, I will fix it! I thrive in the discovery and ideation phase with design sprints, prototyping, concept creation as well in delivering high-quality, delightful designs. I like is the challenge, the openness to new ideas and new angles to problems. I use whichever design method I think will benefit, often changing them and putting my own twist on them to perfectly fit the client, the project or sometimes my mood. I am a rulemaker and a rulebreaker.

My process

Maybe it’s a bit more complicated than that…

It’s hard to put a title on what I do, having led projects and also designed into the last detail of it. I am a gatherer of tools and a tinker, I just like to know about everything so I can easily and quickly create ideas, experiments and get my concept understood.

Regardless of the project work I do – I care most about working is to lift up my team, through mentoring juniors and creating new ways of working that set us up for success, as well as fix things to make the workplace a great place to be.
