Lena Weber is a graphic system designer and creative coder, focusing on the development of design tools and typographic systems.
She is working as a freelancer after completing her master's degree at Bauhaus University in 2022.
In her thesis „Ambiguous Aesthetics – creatively coded graphic design as encrypted information“ she explores the aesthetics of coded design by mixing philosophical and technical with visual approaches.
