Hi there!

My name is Nicole Baster. I am a Vienna born and raised designer with Czech and Polish roots. 
Most of all I enjoy challenges that revolve around the topics of user experience and interface design, but won’t say no to any other creative tasks coming my way. 
During my educational career I have repeatedly taken the opportunity to study abroad, since I value the exposure not only to different cultures but also to other methods and workflows. Currently I am doing an internship at the United Nations Development Programme and in parallel realize freelance projects for various clients.
