Alta’s life design
After earning her Masters degree in Industrial Design and working as a designer & researcher for a few years Iris Jönsthövel founded Alta in 2021. It was during the many workshops she designed and facilitated that she found that the hands-on design methods she was practicing could be applied to designing her own life - as well as that of her friends.
Alta’s design approach to life is rooted in experiment and curiosity for turning thoughts into focus and actionable steps to gain a clearer sense of direction in life. We provide you with the tools you need for designing your life and career. At Alta we don’t just create tools for this way of life --we live it.

What others say
"Iris takes you on a hands-on journey of self-discovery. She offers a lot to stimulate your thinking and organise your thoughts, all by yourself and at your own pace. I just love how the visual prompts enabled me to access thoughts and insights buried deep down within me, without even trying!"
