Senior Concept Developer
What is it that you do at The Techno Creatives?
I try to create the best user experience possible, from sketches to tangible prototypes with wires and little circuits. That involves a lot of innovation and ideation, as well as engineering and anthropology.
What were you doing before you came to work at The Techno Creatives?
I was working at a start-up in San Francisco, trying to create the next big location based social media site. Eventually it turned out to be one of the biggest in its niche also.
Can you describe the biggest difference in your daily life since you started working at The Techno Creatives?
Working at The Techno Creatives has brought me around the world for different projects and, actually I just completed a full lap. I have worked with many fantastic people, and got many new friends that I would never have met otherwise. Before that I was working 14 hrs per day, 6 days per week in the same office also interesting, but a bit exhausting in the long run.
What do you find to be an important factor of a work culture?
Good company and good coffee. That creates interactions for people to spark the brilliant ideas that brings the projects forward in tough situations.
Mention three things you enjoy doing besides work
I like mountain sports in general, but skiing/snowboarding and mountain biking are my favorites. I also like to cook and experiment with different techniques from the modernist cuisine trend.
We have engineered and designed the movements of a large work table which rotates 90 degrees and simultaneously powers forward to display a large 17” media screen for a full in-car theater experience. Below the cushioned leg rest is an additional area for shoes.
At the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2011, Volvo Car Corporation visualized a masterpiece of Scandinavian Design for car buyers with exquisite taste. The Concept Universe is a large, luxurious sedan with a new human-centric design language that honours the beautiful lines of classic Volvo models.
The graphical display takes a form of a cluster that allows for a harmonious bond between the car and driver. The driver can choose between different graphical themes that emphasize the varied modes.
The new Volvo in-car experience was revealed on Salon International de l´automobile Genéve in 2014.

We are proud to have had the opportunity to be part of developing the Volvo Concept You for Frankfurt 2011.
In the Volvo S60 Concept Car the driver´s environment has been designed to provide total overview and convenient control. The design is based on a layer metaphor and has a floating, almost weightless feel about it.
