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.
