Design is the connection between imagination and reality, getting yours and other peoples ideas down on paper, making the intangible tangible.
I'm Miah. 28 year old native Swede living in Germany/Netherlands. I work as the Design lead for vidaXL, where I'm responsible for all commercial visual materials for 31 webshops. Easy explanation is "I create pretty pictures we use for marketing". Complicated explanation is: "I take care of all company design requests, as well as our other two designers, making sure we create visual content (campaign bannering, UX/UI designs, presentations, landing pages, print design (such as truck designs), etc) following and developing the company brand, supporting all departments company wide, with main focus on marketing and CRO."
