with an ecologic twist
I will post interesting articles and comment them..
Read present project updates.
I will be adding sketching videos in time.
Contact me for questions, critique and comments.
I am taking a Masters Degree at The Oslo School of Architechture and Design.
with specialization in Product Design.
I will focus on ecological solutions for product design on my Masters Diploma.
This is my proffesional background:
My key values as an Ecologic Industrial Designer. Long lasting good quality is no excuse to use environmentally hazardous material in production. An example; Chromium; it makes extraordinary surfaces, and is widely used in furniture and faucets, or taps. Long lasting products are good, in the sense that they last longer. But eventually they do end up in the junkyard and later in nature. Accumulated Chromium has devastating consequences to organic life.
Even if one doesn’t believe in man-made cause to global warming, one must admit that polluting nature is a bad idea, causing severe problems locally and globally. Many argue that this is hysteria, but we must all agree that we appreciate fresh air and water, and that we have a personal responsibility in the matter.
A producer is responsible for their product thru its entire lifetime. Have you seen a cat chasing a small laser dot? It is an amusing sight. Many chase riches just like that cat, completely focused on one small dot in their reality; profit; thoughtless of the ecological and social consequences. As an industrial designer I want to create products responsibly. This is a great and complicated task, because there are so many aspects to it; production, logistics, and of course; waste. These are often part of great chains that are difficult to control.
Technology is good. It is probably true that if we all lived with less technology, we would be leaving a smaller ecological trace. But the problem is still not technological advance. The threat to nature and life is the plundering of non-renewable resources, overconsumption and irresponsible production chains. Designers and engineers have a key part in this advancement.
Industrial design is the professional service of creating and developing concepts and specifications that optimize the function, value and appearance of products and systems.
Graphic design is a creative process undertaken in order to convey a specific message (or messages) to a targeted audience. I offer all aspects by myself and thru professional titeled partners.
The different areas of web design include; web graphic design, interface design, authoring; including standardised code and proprietary software, user experience design and search engine optimalization. I offer all aspects thru proffessional titeled partners.
Illustration is dear to me. I have experience teaching it Växjö Universitet, Sweden, and other Schools. And still I am learning the trade. If I have time, I gladly assist in projects that need sketching and visualisation.
