Lina Wilckens, BFA Industrial Design

Currently enrolled at the graduate programme in Design Innovation & Transformation Design at The Glasgow School of Art

I’m a designer specialising in innovation and experience with a strong foundation in the material. The projects I work with deal with the human condition, highlighting the feelings created in the interactions between people and objects. I believe in working with my head, heart and hands in order to create different visions for how we live.
