What I do
Isabella joins Nesta as a Health Lab intern to research and analyse challenges, derive strategies for new opportunities focusing on people powered health and well-being.
Thereby, she will support the team in different projects such as People Powered Results or the Accelerating Ideas - a fund which supports eight highly promising aging innovations.
After completing her master’s in Innovation Management at Central Saint Martins, Isabella worked as a freelancer for Cspace, a customer-centered agency and as a project assistant for the Creativity World Forum 2017 in Aarhus, Denmark. Previously, she joined Precipice design as a design strategist where she got an insight into cultural innovations, trend and foresight, and meaning-centered design strategies.
Isabella’s interest in the Health Lab lies in her previous work experience as a paramedic. Her ambition is to combine thinking and doing to explore new ways of changing the system. Her talent in design helps her to quickly visualise ideas.
Outside of work, Isabella is the co-founder of verbell - a art agency based in Germany. Tape Art uses tape material in different colours to create new space environments. She also recently completed a project with the German newspaper die ZEIT for the festival ZEIT Freunde. Additionally, she enjoys going to movies and finds London one of the best places to be for listening to great jazz music.
