Introducing: international design talents in Finland

June (Jooeun) Park
Hello everyone! I’m June, a final year Master’s student studying Collaborative and Industrial Design at Aalto University, from South Korea. At the moment, I’m working as a service design trainee at the City of Helsinki. My long-standing motivation to engage marginalised people in designing public services led me to study service design and work with the city organisation. Last year, I worked with and for Roma people living on Helsinki streets to improve their healthcare access in collaboration with Kalasatama Health Station as part of the 2020 Student Service Design Challenge. Before my study, I worked as a service designer at Korea Institute of Design Promotion, redesigning policies and strategies for resettlement of refugees and immigrants with municipalities and the Ministry of Interior.
