Laura Ferreira

Laura Ferreira born in Funchal, Madeira, moved from sunny Porto to snowy St. Gallen to pursue her life mission of educating new future makers.

She studied Industrial Design at ESAD.CR, and was doing work as a freelance designer for several industries when she realized that design can bring a lot of value to the industry and to the global future economy.

Passionate about spreading understanding in how to leverage design skills for the business world, the move to work in the Design Thinking course in the University of St. Gallen was exactly right.

From Porto she also brought her expertise in the work with the SUGAR network, now being responsible for heading this network’s global activities.
