Hi there, my name is Mira.

Growing up in Bulgaria, I developed my interest in the creative world through playing with Microsoft Paint and creating imaginary CD covers as a child. I encountered Street art culture back in high school which has been helping me understand the importance of teamwork, unique approach, and storytelling to this day. I received a degree in Graphic Design in Sofia. However, I decided to move out of my comfort zone to Milan to seek new adventures and experiences in the creative field.

I’m driven by curiosity, observation, thinking, and translating complex ideas into simple, exciting stories. As an Interaction and UX designer, I believe that critical thinking and user-centered approach can really help create experiences that bring value for the people.

I am currently finishing my master degree at Politecnico di Milano in Interaction and Digital Design, where I’ve been focusing on creating interactive systems and apps, working in teams and visualizing complex ideas. When I am not on the computer designing solutions, one can find me planning my next trip, sketching in nature some anime, or thinking of names for my future dogs.
