Louisa Heinrich is a design, strategy and innovation leader. Over the past 20 years, she has been part of the development of many technologies that are now considered commonplace. As design director during the first dotcom boom, Louisa led the design of some of the first digital consumer projects for banks, healthcare companies and government services. She was executive director for BBC future platforms when iPlayer was released. As global head of strategy for international design agency Fjord (now part of Accenture), she was responsible for trends and thought leadership, as well as working on award-winning projects such as Bonnier Media’s News Plus, which reinvented the newspaper for the touch-screen era. She founded Superhuman in 2013 to focus on the human aspects of the digital future, and works with clients large and small to align business planning and technology with the needs of real people.

Louisa is also a highly regarded speaker on topics such as the future of technology, technology and society, strategic and product development and planning, human centred business, personal identity in the digital age, big data, screen-less interfaces (the IoT), AI and design education.

— Atte Hujanen, Yle Prophesy


“Louisa’s creative and strategic thinking on the future of the mobile ecosystem –together with her great public speaking skills – made her a big added value to our events. This is not only my personal opinion but can also be seen from the positive feedback from our event delegates in London and Amsterdam.”
