    Hi, I'm Noukka

    and I am a  product designer 

    Multidisciplinary, always curious, always learning, and always sharing what I’ve learned. With over 8 years of experience, I started as a UI/UX designer in a full-service design agency working with A-list brands, and I’m currently a Senior Product Designer at Klarna.

    Design philosophy

    Function first

    If all else fails, it still has to work.


    • Built to scale, built to last
    • Design with society in mind
    • Low environmental impact


    • Design with respect
    • Design with empathy
    • Allow for mistakes


    See the world through my eyes.

    Noukka Signe

    Product designer with 8+ years of experience. Based in Berlin, Germany.
    Currently at Klarna.

    The basics

    Born and raised in Amsterdam, I graduated from Communication and Multimedia Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht. My interest in media and communication started when I fell in love with photography at age 13. After saving up for my first camera, I started sharing my photography on DeviantART and Flickr.

    What I do today

    As a Product Designer, I oversee the development of new products and features from start to finish. This includes developing the initial concept, ensuring a seamless user experience, paying attention to even the smallest details, and implementing improvements. Together with product managers, I help set a solid strategy where user and business needs meet. To achieve these goals, I work closely with engineers, designers, analysts, and marketing teams to provide an exceptional experience for our users. I advocate for the users and work hard to solve their problems and make their lives easier while contributing to our business’s growth.

    As a senior designer at Klarna, I also support the design team by sharing my knowledge, mentoring new team members, and conducting hiring interviews.

    I always value using my skills for good. Feel free to reach out to me if you have a project that wants to make the world a better place.

    I believe in the power of storytelling, interaction, and exceptional user experience. I strive to use these elements to build strong relationships with our users.

    Work history

    I began my career as a designer at Triple, a full-service digital agency. Starting as an intern, I later became a full-time employee. During my time here, I worked with prominent Dutch and Belgian brands such as RTL, Vodafone, and Telenet, as well as Triple’s proprietary products like SpotOn.

    After Triple, I joined Resoluut as a Visual Designer for clients such as Loyens & Loeff, OHRA, NN, and ING Netherlands. 

    I’m also a freelance photographer, creating creative imagery for stock agencies or doing portrait shoots with local entrepreneurs and artists. In 2018, I joined Klarna as a Product Designer in Stockholm and moved to Berlin in March 2020 for an internal opportunity.

    The little things

    I prefer Android phones, and too many times, I’m the only designer around who does.

    I collect way too many fonts. (Shoutout to Typeface 3 for making it more manageable.)

    I love stationery and productivity. Because of this, I found a home in the Bullet Journal community. Now, I’m sort of accidentally managing an Instagram account with 100k followers and a Facebook group with 70k members. I guess you could say I also like planning and adding structure to the chaos (but not too much; I appreciate a little chaos).

    I also love old cameras and collect them, preferably cheap and pre-1960.

    I always had a dream to own a lot of books and have a personal library. Moving countries twice has kind of killed that dream, but buying books is still one of my favorite things to do (until I think about packing them).
