Maral Pourkazemi is a German designer with Iranian roots, living and working in London. She believes that design has the potential to make relevant topics accessible to ultimately communicate information in more engaging ways. That’s why in the past few years her interest in human rights related stories and her involvement as a ‘Design Activist’ in this field grew significantly. She lead the design team of a London based NGO, founded her own little design consultancy whilst also being the co-founder of a global data, design and storytelling conference.
