We started building an e-commerce tool for librarians to license individual eBooks. The first version was partly good, partly awful. It is getting better, a little at a time.
All adults know that dragons giggle when they are tickled. But many kids have not found that out yet. So we in the Bolibompa team set out to build a digital dragon who kids relate to and whom they want to tickle! A Ticklish Mission.
Innovative content concepts can mean that editors need to adjust how they work. At SVT I helped make that kind of change happen. Kids helped me do it
I was asked to suggest improvements for the product promo page for Artbutler Cloud Websites – a tool for building websites for artists and galleries. My recommendations boiled down to experimenting with CTA's, mixing up the imagery and using a combo of content structures.
I am forgetful. So I invented a way for my washing machine to communicate with me. No, no cats where hurt in the machine :)
I like being efficient and effective. So I have optimized where I wait in some of the stations of the Stockholm subway. I'm an optimization freak. :) The Japanese do it too!

A longitudinal study with up to 100 participants has the potential to combine the best of quantitative and qualitative metjods. A bonus: no need to constantly find new "test subjects". "Is the service valuable over time?"
I wanted to introduce my colleagues to the user experience parts of a new project we are working on so I invited them to a paper mockup session. The team created a lot of cool, fun and useful interaction ideas and my colleagues also started thinking a lot about the details in the product that we are creating. The workshop was a great success.
In the video I discuss how I and my sister Åsa took a theoretical approach to understanding farm tourism. We gained three insight that informed our communication strategy and also influenced the actual product – a vacation apartment on our family farm Smultronboda.
