Design approach
I am a designer with a deep interest for user-behaviour, prototyping and creating meaningful change. By taking a holistic approach I design not just good products, but the right products.
I enjoy embedding myself in new contexts, and understanding them empathetically. This enables me to make the complex concrete, and conceptualize the abstract.
I am comfortable expressing my thoughts and opinions, and I think honesty, mutual respect and discussion is the key to any good collaboration. 
My toolset include user research & testing,  CAD & rendering, rapid prototyping, design for ISO-standards, communicating with manufacturers, planning & executing design processes, just to name a few.
I worked as a product designer at PlatoScience where I did product design, prototyping, user testing and communicated with manufacturers. Please check CV and Letters of Recommendation for reference.
I have Master in Design from The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, where I explored Service Design and focused on working independently and finding my own way in the design process.
I hold a Bachelor in Design & Innovation from The Technical University of Denmark, which has given me a knowledge of materials, mechanical problem solving and manufacturing, as well as a set of very defined tools for designing.
Furthermore, I have education in fine woodworking and use these skills extensively in my design work.
"Johan is a very special person to work with, in every positive understanding imaginable. He’s a highly creative, hard working, and visionary design thinker – with a significant understanding of both conceptual and mechanical design work."
- Balder Onarheim, CEO at PlatoScience
