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.

On barnkanalen.se we have a few very popular coloring books. In May 2013 we where tasked with enhancing the functionality of the painting book. I used Paper Prototyping as my main tool to define the interactions in the admin interface before it was developed.
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.
Prototypes are good for a lot of things: usability studies, testing ideas and as an internal communication tool. For a guideline project I helped create an iOS app prototype. The process was fun and gave us many insights.

Bernie appreciates the curation work that Design Hotels has done and especially likes that he can get to know the persons who have built and now run the hotels.

The insights can help when building new sites/apps or evaluating existing ones. 8 things the site needs to enable
