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.

ALM BRAND DESIGN CHALLENGE

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

EXPERIENCING RATHER THAN READING

In our bachelor thesis we investigated the use of self-tracking devices, exploring how a user understands written output, as numbers. This was done through analyzing existing self-tracking devices, as Fitbit and Upright. A prototype was created and used for testing to understand and explore the possibilities and limitations of self-tracking tools.

The Ambience

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.
