Hello! I’m a Copenhagen-based interaction designer and recent graduate from K3, Malmö Högskola.

My name is Tore. I’m an interaction designer with an interest to design in-between virtual and physical spaces. Exploring how we can experience and understand our world anew through technology motivates my work and is often done with a focus on aesthetic, speculative and bold expressions. I work with a lot of mediums, ranging from web to physical installation and my work has been featured on Fast Co Design and Creative Application, among others. Besides that, I feel comfortable with a camera in my hand.

Design approach

I find myself caught in the middle of a pragmatic and artistic mind-set, where I synthesize new ideas and designs, through prototyping and research. I enjoy experimenting with modern technologies and treat them as design materials to generate and realize ideas. However, as technology and culture is entwined I find it essential to reflect this in a design process. I believe in close collaboration with users and other stakeholders, where qualitative user research is used to inspire, inform and qualify design decisions and transform insights into meaningful experiences.
