Hej!

(THAT'S HELLO IN SWEDISH)

 

My name is James and I am an Interaction Designer currently prototyping connected products and services at Kiska in the Austrian alps.

I recently graduated from the Masters Programme at Umeå Institute of Design in Sweden.

During my studies I had the opportunity to work at Frog Design in Shanghai for six months and at Designit in Oslo for six months.

 

Previously I worked as an Industrial Designer for five years, designing touchscreen kiosks for hospitality and retail experiences.

With my Interaction Design work I seek to combine a strong understanding of user needs with creative approaches to solving problems.

 

 

 

I am happy to discuss new opportunities, answer questions about my work,

or just to talk about prototyping as a design practice.

Selected Work

Some projects I have worked during my time in Umeå, and some stuff from CIID as well.
