Cand.it – specialised in user centered design
I am an advocate for creating the best user experience, through a holistic and strategic design approach by combining user needs, with business goals and stakeholder involvement. I have an analytic and creative mind-set and enjoy working with complex and explorative projects as well as planning and facilitating design processes.
Through working both as a researcher and consultant within the field, I have a solid experience working with qualitative user research, user journey mapping and personas, as well as translating user insights into design through information architecture, concept development, sketching and prototyping.
With a former background in theater and acting I have done several experiments on how to use methods from this field to create empathy for the user in the design process. I have developed the concept ‘video personas’ and used actors for roleplays in co-creation workshops.
