Digital Creative Lead
"Ieva’s experience and design knowledge are much wider than the Pantone color palette. After getting acquainted with graphic design, and having experienced the adventures of large and small creative works, today Ieva dives even deeper into the design. Together with the IT company Baltic Amadeus, she creates incredible things, goes deep into the science of user experience, user-centered design, web design, and usability testing.
Overseeing, guiding and coaching an international team of designers is not less familiar to her than working with a creative team in order to create concepts for advertising campaigns or address the challenges in real-time.
However, apart from taking care of the aesthetics of design, Ieva also ensures it meets the technical criteria. Ieva’s secret is simple – she believes that good design is not just about beauty. It also has to be functional and help brands by hitting directly at the heart rather than in the brain."
