Design Strategy  

In the following sections I briefly elaborate on some design Strategical arias.  

Where are your company located on the design maturity ladder?

A company's design maturity | The first design maturity ladder was developed by the danish design center 2001 and is 20+ years later still very relevant when it comes to evaluating a company's design and innovation strategy. Below this section I will briefly mention some of the most important steps in evolving to a more design oriented company.

Where are your company on the design maturity ladder?

Design Methodology

 The design process is never a linjer process and never the other alike. 

Double diamond | The design process is never a straightforward process as I try to illustrate with the scribbly graphics above. But if trying to theoretically describe and discuss the process I think the double diamond makes a good job of illustrate the fundamentals of the process. It visualises the divergent and the convergent phases very well. It also pedagogically emphasises and explains the two different 

"Diamonds" (Parts) of the process. First part is to really understanding and research what to do. Second part is to design that right. It’s not very uncommon that the first Dimond is not that very present in a company's design/development process. In my experience this may lead to actually missing the real problem and in that way risk not to serve the true user/customer needs. And in the end cost you in market shares and loss in competitiveness when others does this right. 

I believe the key-factors of our successes is that we always have the focus on the true user's needs, and never start to create before we have a clearly defined and communicated problem and challenge statement.

Products designed with the customer in mind

The research that goes behind every great product & service design

Trough user observations, discussions/interviews, contextual studies and in many cases we will conduct in-bodied and self experienced exercises i co-creation with users. We also rune surveys and measure/analys user-data and activities. And we conduct CX monitoring and evaluations after launches- (how well did we do, finding clues to make it even better).

User experience | Understanding your users is the key to solving your customers needs and to feed your innovation development process. As UX designers we are experts at finding and defining unmeet/unspoken user needs and desires. To then translate them into new innovative ideas and solutions. We combine different techniques to gather this insight bringing information: 

Brand Identity   

Your brand identity is the personality of your business and a promise to your customers.

Design guidelines & Branding | One of the most important foundations of a company's Design strategy is to align and harmonise its branding expression and experience. Building your experience identity from your core DNA, history and fundamental core values is the ultimate way of communicating them to your customer and users. When this is done right it is manifested through out all of the companies touch points making them your unique Brand experience.

When defined it could be documented and communicated in design guides and visual identity documents. Important note though, you always need to evolve your experience. Mening that the Design language, expression and experience is always a work-in-progress that needs to be adapted to the ever changing circumstances to stay up to date and contemporary.

One product experience

One Experience through all touch points | It's the total sum of harmonised Brand touch points that makes the difference. In the design/branding strategy the product and digital design harmonisation is only a fraction of when it's really matters. It's when taking the entire customer experience journey in

account that you really can bridges the gaps and that you achieve the difficult task of building a strong cohesive end to end/renewed brand experience. 

Design Management

Creative lead | Teams, process and content

Leading teams & leading content | Today most organisations have to navigate themselves towards a innovation culture and at the same time also strengthen and maintain the brand experience and secure it's uniqueness on the market to keep there competitive advantage. This is where strong creative leaders can make a big difference in leading both teams, processes and content. 

"Building diverse and strong teams and giving them the right circumstances and motivators, has always been my aim and motto."
