Jesper Who?

My philosophy has always been to be, in whatever job I hold, a Playmaker. 

Now, what does "Playmaker" mean, you ask? 

Well, a playmaker (in soccer), courtesy of Wikipedia, is: "an attacking player who controls the flow of the team's offensive play, and is often involved in passing moves which lead to goals. [....] - creativity is the only true requirement, and good passing ability and tactical awareness help" 

No experience is without use - over a career ranging across such disparate areas as army sargeant, musician, massage therapist, cabinet maker, furniture-, interior- and digital designer, project management, retail sales & management, webshop design & implementation and more, I've found that if handled and understood properly, experiences from this variation of fields all can help making each other deeper, stronger, and serve as better tools.

Specialty: Customer/User Experience consulting - including product development, optimization, analysis etc.

Also: Creative Playmaker, strategy guidance, practial design-on-demand, designing with illumination, interior styling, sales, project management, web design, retail store management, webshop design & management, customer address communication, PR & marketing

Talkback: Facebook, Oculus & the future of VR/3D

Talkback: Facebook, Oculus & the future of VR/3D

OK, this isn’t so much a Talkback as it’s a Talk-Along – though at least I’m not jumping the bandwagon just to say that it’s weird, or for that matter either awful or wonderful, that Facebook has acquired Oculus.It’s something else that I have to say – it’s inspired by Wired’s article entitled “Why Facebook’s(…)

The timing of interaction

The timing of interaction

You’ve probably heard about how human beings are said to have five senses – sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch, right? One, two…. looks about right.Anyway, we have more than those, and even though there’s still discussion going on about which, and how to define them, this is the kind of knowledge about human functioning(…)

Chocolate covered broccoli?

Chocolate covered broccoli?

In my ongoing effort to clarify, or at least comment on, important concepts in the field of User Experience, today we’re going to talk a bit about chocolate covered broccoli.You may now feel you’ve skipped the parts of the UX debate, or even the pages of the litterature, in which this core tenet of the(…)

Talkback: Robot Overkill edition

Talkback: Robot Overkill edition

Since I’ve instated this section (or whatsammabobbit) specifically for the purpose of directly responding to stuff, I’ve got this one for you, Wired: No, that’s not online shopping’s thorniest problem, and no, this wouldn’t solve it if it was.What am I talking about? Well, this article, in which you can read about how a robot(…)

Talkback: User Experience vs. Customer Experience

Talkback: User Experience vs. Customer Experience

Heard on Twitter: inarosen (@inarosen) - ”UX er vigtig men blot en delmængde af kunders drømme om værdifulde services. #UX #CX #CustomerExperience ow.ly/rEEFI”Jesper Wille (@jwcph) - ”@inarosen næh, #cx & servicedesign er delmængder af #brugeroplevelse, som er andet & mere end user interface & usability. Uddyber gerne…”inarosen (@inarosen) - ”@jwcph Uddyb gerne! :)” Well, that was in Danish… OK, quick translate: inarosen says that(…)

Nudging

Nudging

OK, now that I have your attention, by virtue of mentioning one of the hottest buzzwords of the day (other than Big Data) I thought I’d take you through a brief explanation – as it’s so often the case with buzz concepts, it can get a little confusing as everybody scrambles to shoehorn the latest whassamabobbit into their(…)

The empathy tool

The empathy tool

As I’ve teased once or twice in earlier articles, today we’re going to look at the most important tool in the User Experience specialist’s toolbox: The Empathy Tool. To make sure this makes sense, let’s first look at the concept of empathy – to some it may carry connotations of peace, love & flowers but what(…)

Big Data vs. User Experience

Big Data vs. User Experience

That right there is the big buzzword of the hour: “Big Data”. You’ve probably heard it sometime this week, possibly today, and you’ve probably noticed the very positivistic connotations that adhere to it – the glowing, even awestruck, tone of voice when the words are said, the shared assumption that this concept holds the answers.(…)

Is it worth it?

Is it worth it?

This is, of course, the big question for most companies: – is it really worth it to invest time and effort in user/customer experience managment and -activities?Indeed, companies and corporations often cite the reason of “complexity” and/or “organisational structure” for being reluctant to implement these activities – and this is not wrong; they are those(…)
