Lemke Meijer loves science and is always looking for new things to learn and experience. After exploring her career as a graphic designer, a project manager, an entrepreneur and illustrator, she got back to her roots of interaction design. She now creates high end concepts for museums and exhibitions striving to seduce the audience to explore new perspectives and unknown grounds. Combining her skills she finds creative ways to explain complicated matters in a comprehensible way.
Lemke Meijer received a MSc degree in Design for Interaction from the Delft University of Technology, focusing on user centred design and design for emotion. She designs for people's experience, through presenting the audience with a new angle of perception or seduce them into unexpected encounters. Playing with senses and creating a context for a specific emotional experience she immerses the audience in the story that is being told.
Lemke Meijer has always been and is still drawing, painting, building, sculpting and making plans. She wants the things she creates to have a positive effect on people and give them an (tangible) experience that broadens the mind.
