user experience design, interaction design, user insights, and design processes.
Works and projects
In the following, a few projects I have worked on will be presented. The projects have been chosen to highlight specific skills, analyses, and synthesis processes, that demonstrates how I usually address a design solution, or what I find interesting working on in my spare time.
Creating an online presence for a freelance psychologist, working with private and cooperate clients. This project focuses on communication with a client. Working iteratively readjusting the aesthetics of the website for the client’s needs and wants, while still keeping the users experience in mind.
UI, Mock-ups, Adobe Proto XD, WordPress, Testing
We were given a design brief by a danish insurance firm, to create a product addressing the future of insurance firms. By analyzing customer groups, Interviewing, prototyping, and testing, we created a meaningful tool by addressing touchpoints from the customer journey.
Service design, Contextual Inquiry, Design Sprint, Prototyping
Ambience is a project working with live 3D environments using a blue screen room, Maya 3D and Unity. In this project we addressed how one could design in a futuristic context, without addressing the focused vision: When living with someone, there is a certain feeling of comfort that you get, when the person is around you. Even though you don't look directly at them. Some address this when being alone, by turning on the television or the radio. We therefore wanted to address this feeling through a futuristic design solution.
3D Modelling, Speculative Design
The Corona jacket is a university project. This project addresses the technology of e-textiles, by having non-human elements interact with each other. We created this jacket with the context of the Corona Pandemic in mind. The jacket alerts people getting within one meter of the wearer of the jacket, by making LED’s blinking faster and faster according to one’s proximity.
Addressing the ever growing abundance of consumer electronics I have several projects, where I'm trying to reuse some of the old speakers, computers, and phones, that are going to waste. By redesigning it to meet the needs of a modern day user, one less product will have to be produced from scratch. This gives a lot of satisfaction knowing, while I'm also learning a lot about how the products work.

SOFTWARE AND SKILLS
My name is Johannes Wigh-Poulsen, born 11. Septemer 1995 in Kolding and grew up in Odense. Began studying a bachelor’s degree in Digital Design at Aarhus University in 2017. In 2020 I spent one semester at the best university in Korea, Seoul National University. Currently I am studying my graduate degree in Digital Design.
I enjoy digital design, as it lets me be creative through design processes to create meaningful artefacts, exploring technology and materials. Everything from gathering information, analyzing users, to creating and testing prototypes.
