Hacking Expedit

Recently we decided to beef up our bland ikea furniture a bit. The victim was an expedit rack that we use as a hi-fi rack in our living room. I am a huge fan of pixel art and would cover my whole appartement in 8-bit if I could. Anyhow, as we wanted it to be [...]

Multichannel Experiences

Recently I have to deal a lot with user experiences of services and products that live simultaneously on websites, microsites, mobile, in mail or social media, in-store and even in call centres. These services and products, to which we refer to as multichannel experiences, can be quite challenging to get right. Thoughts about design as [...]

I love Infographics. Extensive problems explained quick and easily digestive, appealing, engaging. Recently I talked to the creators of Ubuntu about opening up the OS to a wider audience and used this tiny Infographic to open up the conversation…

Doodle, Erase

A couple of days, I stumbled upon an old magna doodle board at a flea market in London. Doodling on it is pure amusement. Doodle, erase, doodle, erase, think visual.

Sculpting a Master’s Thesis

Tough to realize, but in the last couple of months, I spent quite a lot of time on writing, sculpting and vagabonding over a single page of text; i.e. the abstract of my master’s thesis. In retrospect the process of gradually sculpting it has even been quite helpful. Not only did it help to communicate [...]

Where are you from?

A low-brow and wonderful take on data mapping. Some weeks ago, my girlfriend and visisted Fremantle, WA. Since Fremantle picks up visitors from all over the globe, a bar owner started to ask people to stick a pin on a map to show where they come from. Over time he gathered actually quite an impressive [...]

No rocket science, just a little trick. Into our normal bread dough, we mix frozen cheese cubes that won’t melt while baking and [...]
