emilia astromHi I’m Emilia Åström!

As a creative digital strategist I design and develop learning experiences in the form of workshops and interactive projects. I’m interested in the facilitation of learning and creative processes, developing projects using both digital and analog tools that through experience provokes reflection.

After studying Digital Media at Hyper Island in Stockholm, I came to Buenos Aires to work with the innovation incubator Fly Garage by Mondelez together with Contagious Magazine and Castro Innovation. Today I develop workshops and projects with international clients such as Telefonica, Mondelez, MTV, and Hyper Island, as an independent facilitator and creative strategist at IFUCUFOLLOW new media studio.

Born in Sweden, during the past 10 years I have had the opportunity to travel and live in different places. After working in both North and South America I speak both English and Spanish as my second languages, and am comfortable collaborating in different environments. With my mother working as an artist and art teacher, and my father working in advertising, I early developed an interest for both learning, art and communication.
