Nina Abroad

Master of Design in London at Ravensbourne 

So close, so different, so big and on a high pace, London is a magnificent city. Learning how to bring messages in all ways possible, next to the straight forward Dutch version of course. This society shows how bureaucracy acts in between all the innovation that is happening around us. I am learning how to dance between design, academic research, hands on experience and foremost all the amazing people I get to meet.
