"Clara is a highly effective user experience designer who can work across the design process from research through to development and delivery. She can extract meaningful insights from user research and immediately translate them into opportunities for design... She works quickly to prototype solutions and has a keen eye for detail - creating delightful visual designs and crafting compelling user experiences. I really enjoyed working with Clara, she is extremely calm under pressure, a great team player and can always be relied on to deliver excellence. I hope I have the opportunity to work with her again in future!“

"Clara is a very talented designer with great motivation and design skills. She likes to work hard and is someone you can truly rely upon. Her pro-active personality drives her to be involved and take on responsibilities naturally... Next to this she has excellent empathy, design and visualization skills. Always coming up with new ideas and ever brighter solutions. There is nothing not to like. I would recommend her to any design and development team."
