The means of measure

Horsepower. A word that I once pictured as utter coolness. I mean by the power of 200, maybe even 600 horses… Packed into a single automobile. It’s really not hard to grasp how powerful that is. It is really powerful. Why am I going on about this again? Well there’s actually another power at play…

Ratings, NPS and Machine Learning

I recently performed a small user testing session on a design I made as part of a UX course I’m currently enrolled to. And as a part of that I decided to do a small survey on how the users themselves rated their own technical know-how (the point of the app being that it should…

Ikea, synthesizers and the state of marketing

One of my main guiding ideas – paradigms, is the notion that “The future of advertising is design”, claimed by Rei Inamoto circa 2012 (and possibly someone else before that, that I do not know of). In 2012, I myself had no idea about this notion, and I think it’s safe to believe that most…

The ever-evolving web

These last few days I have for undisclosed reasons been scavanging the web for good but reasonably priced kitchen-ware, ranging from knives to microwaves. And one thing that hit me was, no matter if the shops were having somewhat good scores, some of them really looked like shit. Not necessarily in the sense that they…

Designing a beginner synthesizer pt.1

This series is being reworked and will be re-released in the distant future I remember about five years ago when I took my first steps into the world of sound design and mixing technology. Looking up things such as what the hell MIDI was and that it didn’t actually send audio, understanding how EQ manipulated…

Artifact over human

When you look around the internet it’s not an uncommon sight to see a couple of articles here and there highlighting the future problem of AI replacing humans in one field after another. To date we have seen some attempts in healthcare, most prominently in Japan where the Pepper Robot are taking care of elders…
