Design Sprints

The Design Sprint has been an integral part in most of my work the past years. Running and facilitating +50 design sprints in various projects with different teams, has been a great way to test and iterate on important design and business questions.

Different projects and timescales requires different approaches so I have had success adapting the design sprint formula to the needs of the team and project. 5-day, 3-day, 2-day and even 2-hour design sprint variants all have merit in differing scenarios.

See my projects for specific examples of design sprints in use.

About me

Great design – Gadgets – Going outdoors – Gastronomy

UX and great design is not just a job but a state of mind. Ideas on how to optimize a confusing appliance, faucet, app or badly written sign comes to me whenever I see bad design.

Keeping up with the latest tech is a passion of mine. Be it the newest phones, IoT, Machine Learning or Sous Vide cooker. Seeing the exiting possibilities new technology brings is a great source of inspiration.

Hiking, jogging, working out, travelling and keeping active is important for a good quality of life.

Some people meditate, some watch tv, some listen to music. I cook. Trying new recipes, flavours and ingredients is similar to design work. An iterative process with testing and refining successes produces great products and great food alike.
