I am Martina. I am a graphic designer with background in design strategies and human centered design, and have in the last couple of years used this knowledge to work with problems of sustainability in textile and fashion industry.
My focus is “communicating sustainability” with the purpose of altering behaviour and making a positive change.
Visually, I work with data visualisation and infographics. In my project - Counting the Closet - I go into people’s closets and together with owners we research and gather data about their clothes. As a conclusion to the research I provide the interviewees with a report on their possessions and behaviour. Here is an example of the research I did on myself: http://www.martinaskender.com/#/counting-the-closet/
I also work with communicating sustainability in form of talks and lectures – such as en evening with sustainable fashion Sustainability Drinks Berlin http://www.sustainabilitydrinks.de/events/February2015.html
Looking forwards to OSCE Days and getting to know you!
