Hi! I am Juan Sebastian Useche

Strategic Designer based in Berlin

 

I was born in Bogotá, Colombia where I finished my bachelor in Industrial Design and gained experience working in different roles, from to digital design to social innovation, and entrepreneurship.
In a more personal level, I love riding my bike, reading design and tech articles, and books, as well as going to events and places to get inspired and feed my curiosity. Lately, I have been learning photography as a hobby.
 
Currently I am designing for Juniqe 
 

Design strategist

I believe that by placing design in the hearth of the organizations we can identify new business opportunities, redefine problems and create a long-lasting and holistic innovation strategy.

User researcher

I truly believe that qualitative research is key in every design project in order to design products and services based on insights and not only assumptions. 

 

Facilitator

I believe that using methods such as Design Thinking, allow teams, companies, and communities to collaborate and to explore new ideas regardless of people's backgrounds.

Innovator

I believe that organizations, regardless of their size, need to invest in environments that allow experimentation and creative thinking along with a structure and culture that encourages employees to share.
