My name is Toby Whelan. I’m an interaction designer with a fascination for human behaviour and a love of problem-solving. I like to create things with social purpose.
Human first, always.
Good design should help people become better versions of themselves. It should enable greater exploration of the self, the world and the people in it.
I strive to immerse myself in the world of the user; learning together and collaborating to create empathetic solutions that solve genuine problems.
Currently in my final snowy year at Umeå Institute of Design. Welcome!
