Vision: Develop and maintain a consistent design identity that strengthens the product portfolio of Axis Communications - the global market leader in digital network video solutions.
Solution: Product identity program expressed in the form of a design manual and a design identity guide. Acting as strategic tools, these drive product development and competitive differentiation by ensuring Axis products project key brand values. In doing so, they increase profitability and strengthen the Axis Communications brand. Importantly, the program is consistently developed and updated in close collaboration with the client..
Awards: The Swedish Grand Design Award 2009.
Vision: To develop an iPhone case for professionals with an integrated swipe sensor and smart card reader. In addition, develop the packaging and instructional design for the product.
Solution: The case is ergonomically designed with an aesthetic fit for the target group. It offers excellent protection and good grip. Its slim backside and semi transparent card slot allows the phone to lie flat and stable. A subtle indentation guides the finger when swiping the biometric sensor on the front. Plus, thanks to its slim design it ensures maximum portability and requires a minimum of materials to manufacture. In addition, the premium looking packaging and instructional design complements the product and the Tactivo brand.
Vision: Develop an integrated strategy, brand and product vision for the marketing and production of innovative portable speakers. In doing so, capitalise on a gap in the market.
Solution: Initial research defined the target group: the Urban Creative. Subsequently, a logo, graphic identity and product sketch were simultaneously developed. This allowed for strong integration between brand and product. The first Orlo speaker was launched in 2010. Named Cup-11, it has an elegant cup-like shape, optimised for mass-production and assembly. Importantly, the refined simplicity of the design reflects Orlo´s focus on innovation, honesty and sound quality.
Vision: Develop a modular range of wiring devices for Sweden, Norway and Finland. This should be so user-friendly that it is recommended by installers and electricians, and so flexible that it attracts private consumers and architects and must be more customisable than existing alternatives.
Solution: The timeless, highly integrated design of the products allows electricians and homeowners to simply replace different finishing parts and accessories. The devices come in different coloured coatings and offer frames, which can be used for inserting photos etc. Consequently, they can be integrated with any interior theme after installation, without the need for technical expertise. Importantly, the devices also meet the demanding standards required for public buildings.
Awards: Red Dot Award 2011.
Vision: Develop an innovative series of industrial computers. Optimise the appearance of touch screen installations, the experience for the end-user, and the manufacturing process.
Solution: The Beijer Electronics iX series combines state-of-the-art technology with a powerful, user-friendly interface that facilitates operation. Modular design allows customers to combine screen size and processor, whilst maintaining the exterior design across all sizes and models. This solution makes the design unique within the product category. Every product detail speaks the same distinctive and cohesive design language. Efficient manufacturing line reduces use of materials.
Vision: To improve the user-experience through combining an exclusive look with a user friendly design and wireless technology. The vision from the design team was ‘an autoinjector to be proud of‘.
Solution: Thanks to new revolutionary technique, high accuracy, durability and wireless communication, the patient can monitor the treatment, administer variable, fixed, multi or single doses and share data with medical staff. The design is soft yet sleek. The usability is enhanced by a hidden display and modern interface, which adapts to the user’s life.
Vision: Create a range of heat pumps, which are differentiated by their ability to meet the needs of both end-users and independent installers. In doing so, develop a user interface and exterior design that meets trends in household design.
Solution: Design reflects results of an initial user study. The heavy components are divided into two, facilitating installation and simple maintenance. For example, the heat pump components can be removed from the water reservoir and plumbing. Intuitive user interface and menu structure encourage user interaction.
Vision: Create an ergonomic chair with a sleek expression, which stands for lightness, well-being and flexibility.
Solution: Everything, from the wheels to the fabric, is designed specially for the Ambio. The upholstery padding on the chair is made from recyclable Ventec™, which is designed by RH, and helps to create a feeling of lightness. The sharp thin frames and hole in the back further enhance this feeling.
Awards: FX Prima Award and the Benelux Office Products Award.
Vision: Challenge attitudes and get more women to work in the traditionally male-dominated construction industry. Ultimately, enhance the entire industry by helping to give it a more gender-balanced workforce.
Solution: A holistic and iterative process was developed, which identified insights and answers on how to attract more women into the construction sector. This involved interviewing teachers, students and professionals to identify challenges; a future forecast studying tendencies within the sector; and a workshop generating ideas on how to develop education programs.

Vision: Create a new and improved user-experience for those who use autoinjectors. Design a product to be proud of, which combines user-friendly thinking with an exclusive look – ‘an autoinjector to be proud of’.
Solution: The Letject® autoinjector combines ease of use with a friendly, sleek and exclusive look. Usability is enhanced by a hidden display and modern interface, which adapts to the user’s life. Able to administer variable, fixed, multi or single doses, the device is equipped with wireless technology. This allows for healthcare providers to monitor usage in real time.
Vision: Create a dry powder inhaler, which strikes the ideal balance between the requirements of all potential customers – e.g. users, clinicians, suppliers, regulators, buyers etc.
Solution: The innovatively designed inhaler reflects our extensive experience in developing DPIs. Each of its four modules – device, formulation, filling and manufacturing – has been independently designed to ensure optimal efficiency, performance and quality. The device works with the type of formulations normally used in DPIs. It can be filled using off-the-shelf filling equipment. In addition, it can be manufactured using established methods.
Vision: Create a product design that reduces stress on physicians’ hands when they are mixing and injecting bone cement. Achieve this goal while optimising the production technique and use of materials .
Solution: The size and shape of the handle are designed to reflect user research: the surface on which pressure is distributed is enlarged as much as possible, without adversely affecting production costs. Texturing improves friction between the handle and sterile gloves of the operator. Branding is incorporated into the handle. The mixing valve is developed to facilitate workflow.
