Design approach
I am a holistic designer with a deep interest for user-behaviour, prototyping and creating meaningful change through product design. By taking a holistic approach and looking at the whole context I am designing for, I design not just good products, but the right products.
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 testing,  CAD-drawing & rendering, rapid prototyping, communicating with manufacturers, presenting & pitching, and planning and executing design processes, just to name a few.
Experience
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.
Education
I recently finished my Master in Design at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, where took a more creative, exploratory and investigative approach to the design process, with focus on finding my own way in the design process and working independently.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Design Engineering 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."
