Service Design

SERVICE DESIGN 

It is a human-centered approach to designing service experience that draws from integrating the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.

SCANDINAVIAN WEB DESIGN

Scandinavian design in general is known for being simple, minimalistic and focused on user experience: from modern architecture, industrial design, interiors, to some of the coolest websites online. My numerous visits to Norway inspired me and enlightened me with respect to simplicity and usability of both visual and urban design concepts. Many of those design aspects have been inherited by web designers based in Scandinavia and influenced web design elsewhere.  Read More…

Digital & Physical Fusion

DIGITAL & PHYSICAL EXPERIENCE DESIGN

Adapting your strategy to Digital & Physical Fusion offers customers a seamless, intuitive, enjoyable and engaging experience. Speak to the millennial generation in their mother tongue – digital. Look through the eyes of an end user. Web design should always consider a wider picture – how does a website fit into a user holistic experience, what service does it provide, what needs it shall meet. We do not design websites anymore, we design platforms that enable and inform about services and help shape your brand and your customers’ experience. Read More…

MAKING DESIGN HAPPEN

Take a general look at the process used when managing and delivering a new project. Project Manager connects required resources with vision and objectives to make things happen using tools and methodologies mastered across the disciplines. From agile project management standards, operational excellence principles to design thinking in order to create design-conducive and innovative environment that empowers customer centric solutions.  

Think

Combining empathy for the context of a problem, creativity in generation of insights and solutions, and rationality in analysing and fitting various solutions to the problem context. Applying design thinking – a human-centered approach that deeply integrates the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success. 

Design

The professionally trained design team applies design principles and techniques across various design disciplines: user experience, visual communication, information architecture, content design, customer journey mapping – employing interdisciplinary and hybrid approaches to the practice of design. Project manager and the team aim to completely understand the target user audience and how they would interact with the solution.

Develop

Design-led solutions are further developed, iterated and tested with end users. Key activities and objectives during the Develop stage are: well defined and understood user profiles, experience scenarios, role playing, service and interaction blueprinting, physical prototyping engaging real users.

Manage Delivery

Designed product or service is finalised and launched. The key activities and objectives during this stage are: implementation, final testing, approval and launch; targets, evaluations and feedback loops. We launch a website or a service and reveal it to the world, but that’s not the end of the story… Effective team collaboration, as well as stakeholders and users engagement is a key role of a project manager in this phase.

” Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. — Steve Jobs, Apple

visitnorwayCAN YOU ACTUALLY GET TO KNOW A COUNTRY OR ITS CAPITAL CITY BY VISITING THEIR WEB PORTALS?
Understanding the role of destination brand perception in the generation of tourism is vital to all businesses from the travel sector. A success of Visitnorway and Visitoslo portals shows how powerful web can be in enhancing brand and providing information about destination and tourism related services to online users worldwide. Multi-language visitnorway.com is a gateway portal for all visitors to Norway. Producing content for various markets and languages requires not only adapting the language but also a degree of cultural adaptation – finding the right triggers and calls to action that will connect with the audience.

globe-2-32BRANDS :” Branding is a profound manifestation of the human condition.” Wally Olins (1930 -2014).
From technology firms, through consumer products to nation branding – Brand is a powerful way of communication while affiliating with specific ideas, values, attributes, feelings and experiences. It differentiates one entity from another. It is embedded across marketing, product development, service design or visual communication design. Here are some of my favourite brands and examples of outstanding visual or digital work: Coca-Cola, Apple, Monocle, Britain is Great, Wired, Icsid/Icograda, Google, HSBC, Adobe, LinkedIn, Visitnorway, Canada,  IAmsterdam, Porsche, Deutche Bank, BBC, Design Council, Montreal. Read More…
