Hi there.

Dani Nordin

Welcome to the zen kitchen.

the zen kitchen is the solo UX design practice of Dani Nordin. I’ve helped businesses large and small focus their positioning, create complex yet intuitive interfaces, and connect with their customers on a deeper level. You can check out some of my projects to get a closer look, or read a bio and resumé

I also write, teach and speak about UX, design for Drupal, sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and various web and business-related topics.

If your team needs a great designer to help them get down to the bottom of a sticky UX issue, I’d love to hear from you.
