Experience prototyping: short movie!

Sharing a project from about a month ago. We had a one week video course. It was my first experience with more professional setup, having a way to record audio, set up proper lighting and camera. I think that was truly the most fun and intense week I had at UID. I ended up with […]

Halloween at Umeå Institute of Design is a big thing. The talks of Halloween costumes start a month before the actual event. After all we have all those amazing industrial design students who have amazing skills in making incredible product models, and we also have an amazing workshop that allows us to build those models.

Self & Distractions

I just read two articles on Medium that made me want to write this, share my own opinion and reflect. Both of them by the same author. Both of them in a very similar tone, also something I heard before. What I heard/read before was about the sacrifices one makes to lead an extraordinary life, […]

Experience prototyping: Omega Squad Veigar

University resumed on Monday this week, and the high tempo started already on the first day with a quick recap of Arduino. By the end of the week we had to create something. The goal wasn’t anything in particular, the whole task was mostly about us trying things out and creating a functional system. I […]

Featured past project: CSS tutorials

Not everything can make it into the portfolio. General rule is said to be that “your portfolio is only as strong as the weakest project“. But there is some pretty cool stuff I’ve done in the past and I’d like to feature it somehow, even if I can’t put it in the main portfolio. So […]

In search of a fitting CMS

Summer project: practicing video editing

Since I started studying at Umeå Institute of Design I was bombarded by videos left and right, product videos, process videos, “for fun” videos. I haven’t really been doing much with video in the past, and I finally got inspired to change that this summer! First up was finishing the Global Game Jam 2016. I […]

Tribute to my hard working female friends

Over the last years with the new wave of feminism I’ve heard it so many times about how difficult it is to be acknowledged for being good at what you’re doing when you’re a woman. I heard that today watching Girlboss, a show on Netflix, where one said “you work twice as hard as these […]

Making stuff with my hands

Around July 2016 I picked an interest in coloring books. I’ve always liked coloring, it’s like revisiting the childhood, but with all the new skills and way more control over my hand. Strangely enough, I don’t like drawing, it’s never been an appealing activity for me. (And here I am, studying design!). Filling things with […]

Working with textiles and music

As I said in my intro entry (that happens to have been written nearly a year ago), I plan to write on the current and recent project on this blog, and everything else I might find important or meaningful to share, but mostly projects still. There’s only so much that makes it into a portfolio, […]
