A great place to work

It’s hard to describe the culture of a company, so we’re not even going to try. Instead we’ll list the work we do when we don’t do client work. Every Friday after lunch, client work is banned and we’re all forced to work on passion projects. That’s nice. It’s fun here.

We have a podcast

Re:Design is a podcast in Swedish about all things design. It’s the only podcast about digital design in Sweden. Nils, Linnéa, Ola and Marcus have recorded and released over 45 episodes over the course of two years. Subscribe at www.designpodcast.se

 
 

Crash Course

Crash Course är en mini-serie på 12 avsnitt riktat till nya designers, men vi tror det finns någonting att lära sig för alla som lyssnar. Nils och Linnea går igenom grunderna, förklarar ord vi ofta slänger oss med och delar med oss av lite handfasta råd. Det kommer ett nytt avsnitt varje vecka.

 
 

Minimum Viable Product

Minimum Viable Product är något som beställare gärna säger men inte fullt greppar vad det är. Nils Marcus och Linnea reder ut vad som gör en MVP och hur man ska tänka när man designar.

 

Branding & Material Design

Viktor Balkewitsch Persson är lead designer på Google där han har varit med och tagit fram Material Design och ingick i teamet som tog fram Googles nya logga. Vi pratar med honom om branding och frågar honom hur han (och lite Google) ser på branding i digitala produkter.
