Anna Wiederkehr

Interaction Design Intern

Anna comes to us with a BA in Journalism and Mass Communications and an MA in Design. She considers herself a self-taught jack-of-all-trades designer who, while working in branding, became enchanted with designing with data. This internship offers her an opportunity to hone her skills in both visualization and interaction design — and to practice her German. When she’s not behind a computer, Anna is outside running, biking, camping or chasing her dog Tollak.
