From 2013 to 2017, I worked as

Interaction Designer and UX Specialist at KMD XForm

Over the years, Andreas has successfully designed or redesigned the user experience of a range of web apps and key features in KMD XForm, our standard platform toolset for creating and operating advanced government-grade web form solutions.

When needed, Andreas has been involved in a number of client projects such as Arbejdstilsynet, Sundhedsdatastyrelsen and Udbetaling Danmark under ATP.

Andreas stands out from most other UX designers by having a technical understanding allowing him to not only take part in implementation, but also helping with input on UI design feasibility and maintainability.

He has my highest recommendations.

Definitions

In case you are unfamiliar with the core concepts of this site, here are some definitions.

User Experience Design (UX)

The field of user experience represents an expansion and extension of the field of usability, to include the holistic perspective of how a person feels about using a system. The focus is on pleasure and value as well as on performance. The exact definition, framework, and elements of user experience are still evolving.

Interaction Design

In some views a subset of UX Design.

… interaction design — the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services. … interaction design focuses on … the design of behaviour.
