Manuela Zavattaro

Manuela is a UX Lead at Nokia.  She began her pro­fes­sional prac­tice in visual, graphic and web design for many blue chip firms in Italy, Por­tugal and UK.  Since 2002 her main focus has been inter­ac­tion design — making other people’s life more beau­tiful, easier and mean­ingful through the use of tech­no­logy.  The space in between people and tech­no­logy, people and people and people and envir­on­ment is her daily focus and what she cares about the most.
In 2006 she joined Nokia and has worked with many touch inter­faces, emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies, design pat­terns, mental models, GUI toolkits and overall plat­form user experiences.
