Solving challenges through design and imagination.


Lillian Ayla Ersoy is the Design Director at Hyper, with 15 years of international experience in conceptual direction and design of digital products, rooms & installations.  Half Norwegian, half Turkish and having grown up in the United States; she is curious, complex and constantly exploring how we look at design, people, process, technology and that space in-between.  

Lillian is a writer on Medium and has held several talks and workshops about IoT, Emotion-driven Design, Design Thinking and Lean UX.  She is inspired by many cultures, beautiful craftsmanship and the magical world we live in. She lives in Oslo and considers herself a citizen of the world.
