Welcome to my pages...
I am currently looking for new opportunities - small or big - and basically anywhere in the world.
My key competences are around innovation,
concepts and not least lovable user experiences. With 24 years
experience and with my designs being used by millions if not billions
of consumers, I believe to know what I talk about.
If you came here to know more about me then check this webpage, or if you came here to buy my book then go here: Link to my book on Amazon.com.
Also I also co-authored another book now (2014): Mad Men of Mobile, and you may find a great extract from here The Rise and Fall of Nokia: How One Inventor Left His Mark on Mobile
User Experience and Innovation are my two passions. I have designed and invented several user interface concepts and functionalities applied to millions and close to billions of mobile devices from Nokia. I also have more than 100 patents filed in the user experience area and I have worked as one of the top UX persons in the industry.
I have done interaction design, user experience design, concept creation, prototypes, innovation, product planning and project management for more than 24 years. Despite my background in device UX and UI, I can work in almost any area spanning from project leader, product marketing, web page design over games and service design to designing TV remote controls.
The title of my book is “User Experience Innovation” and it describes 17 tangible methods how to create user experience innovation. Of course all deeply founded in user insights and needs, but I am applying it to not only devices, but also software systems, web pages, UX design for cars and so forth. These methods may also help you create patents, but for me this is secondary - putting a smile on the face of the users is what drives me personally.
For me, User Experience design is almost the same for any type of product. The book will cover a number of ways to create successful user experience innovation, using pain-points, paradoxes, core user tasks, technologies, first impression, positive surprises and a number of other elements which can provide inspiration for innovation. For a sneak-preview of what the book covers, you can follow this link.
I am now also co-authoring the book called "Mad Men of Mobile" where Danielle Newnham has interviewed 13 original entrepeneurs and inventors in the mobile industry - including me.
