‘I had great opportunity to work with Franziska on some of the Nokia Lumia products and concepting projects. But biggest impact she made was on her work with Nokia Lumia 1020. She drove the design process from the first concepts to final product with R&D Team in Tampere – Finland. Talented Designer!’

‘I had an extremely pleasant opportunity to work closely with Franziska for a year in the same project. Fran has an amazing skill to look at the problem in hand from various angles and create solutions that challenge the status quo. She has the creativity of an artist while always having customer first attitude in mind.
Fran takes an extra step to reach beyond great and inspires co-workers to do the same.’
