Interaction Designer, Design Strategist, and HCI Professor with more than two decades’ experience in crafting beautiful and usable digital experiences
I specialize in building, leading, and coaching multidisciplinary, high-performing creative teams. I'm an Experience Design Director at McKinsey & Company, helping to establish and lead digital experience design as a global capability at Digital McKinsey.
In all my work, whether in industry or academia, I passionately champion the building of human-technology experiences that are both beautiful, elegant, and usable. I employ human-centered interaction design strategies, practices, and skills to create new forms of engaging and humane interactions between humans, technologies, and environments.
I've also had a career-long affiliation with the Department of Informatics at Umeå University (1998 to 2016), where I served as a full professor of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). With my academic hat on, I've authored 80+ academic papers published in leading international journals and conferences—some fairly well known, cited, and frequently used in teaching internationally: e.g. 1, 2, 3, and 4.
I've given 50+ invited keynotes, seminars, and talks for a wide variety of audiences on a surprisingly number of topics. Contact me about speaking engagements.
During the night shift, I’m an accomplished guitar hero (well...)
