ALWAYS CURIOUS

As you probably are aware of by now, my name is Isak. If not, let me re-introduce myself… (pay attention this time!)

I work on products by day, but unfortunately I’m not a superhero by night (yet!). I’ve been designing and tinkering since around Willinium, but only been good at it the past 6 years.

Currently I work at W12 Studios where I do a bit of UX or interaction design (or whatchamacallit?), but mostly just drink the free coffee.

I’m half Danish & half Somali, which unfortunatly haven’t made me the Viking Pirate I’d hoped for. In January 2014, however, I set sail from my hometown of Aarhus, and invaded England, and set up camp in the way too ‘trendy’ Shoreditch, East London.

The pillaging awaits, though.

HOLISTIC PROBLEM SOLVER

I try to understand problems (or “opportunities”, if you’re an optimist), context, and people, while sketching, prototyping and asking my way to an ever-evolving solution.

My multi-coloured background and experience in computer science, product design and innovation processes, designing and building things since Macromedia Flash and Photoshop 5.5, has made me a swiss-army UX knife/scissor/nail clipper…

Some call this UX, others full-stack design, while a few don’t give a crap what it’s called. For me this means I use words like ‘holistic’ and ‘contextual’… a lot!


  • INTERACTION

    People, context & technology. IxD will make it or break it.

  • INFORMATION

    The art and science of when and where of stuff.

  • SERVICE

    Holistic product design. Thinking beyond the thing is quite useful.

  • TECHNOLOGY

    Mostly front-end, but no stranger to systems or physical computing.

  • STRATEGY

    The ‘why’ of what we’re doing. Hopefully it’s useful for someone

  • VISUAL

    Pixel-pushing, illustrating and sketching #allday

Yes, indeed
