Transforming and revolutionizing world-class learning and development programs for SAP´S entire ecosystem.

SHORT BIO

Hi, my name is Nicole. By profession, I am a full-stack multi-disciplinary designer with super UI/Visual & UX design powers. I believe in creating intelligent creative solutions that tap into the truths of a targeted user, making meaningful connections between a brand and their world. Ultimately this leads to creative solutions that are genuinely desirable, feasible and viable for the business and the users. This is done by having a thorough understanding of the inner mind workings of the end-user and the other stakeholders involved.

Currently, I am a senior Product and UX designer for SAPs´ SAP-community and the SAP Learning destinations. I lead and oversee the user experience of certain products from conception to launch with product managers, engineers. 

I have more than 14 years of design experience with a special focus in multi-faceted organisation that require innovative problem-solving and a great eye for detail and the ability to deliver in a fast-pased environment. Most recently I was the Lead Designer at Adhera Health. As part of the brain-trust I helped strategise, oversaw design and implemented innovative design methodologies that scaled. prior to that I was the Creative Director at Abi Global Health where my brainpower was focused on designing, implementing and managing crucial aspects of the product and the brand. Also, I worked as a designer at Home Depot where I helped craft and implement the brand. Eventually, I found my way to Kellen Company, where I worked with many clients such as Kellogs, Smithsonian, Harvard University, George Washington University, Teladoc and Healthgrades.

I hold a master’s degree in User Experience from the University of Barcelona and a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in the United States. I have also been awarded multiple scholarships such as “Woman in Tech” and “SCAD Honours Student”. Finally, I teach and mentor the next generation of talented female designers at AllWoman, a higher education institution.

Aside from all this, I live to live (this involves me doing things I enjoy like traveling, gardening, photography, cooking, fine art, and all things crafty). I dig all kinds of music, crazy about all things well designed and deeply care about our planet, all creatures on it and creating a more sustainable future.

I’m currently based in Barcelona, but originally from South Africa and have spent almost a decade of my life in the United States.

Thanks for stopping by!
