• Schools out for Summer

    Posted June 04, 2012

    7 weeks. 6 students. 2 briefs. Let the challenge begin!

    This summer Doberman will host six brilliant students in the Summer Design Office – “Sommardesignkontoret” – and support them in their effort to solve two complex design challenges during seven weeks. The initiative is arranged as an annual event by the The Swedish Industrial Design Foundation, SVID, and is now arranged in Stockholm for the first time.

    Doberman will host, coach and steer the students as they grapple two challenging briefs on mental health. In an environment where quantified self and data-driven motivation have become a foundation for physical health, how can design influence mental well-being and catch those susceptible before it becomes too late?

    These next 7 weeks will follow a user-centered process, listening to and building empathy for teenagers and employees as the students address the key questions put forward from their clients; Handisam and Psynk.

    We will be sure to keep you updated as things progress.
    Let the challenges begin!

    Posted March 18, 2015

    Microsoft and Mojang collaborates with Doberman

    Mojang is a Microsoft owned game developer studio that develops the game called Minecraft. So far 18,911,292 people bought the PC/Mac version of the game.

    The celebrated game is also an emerging innovative teaching platform. Over 3,000 teachers in 40+ countries have used MinecraftEdu to teach subjects from History, Math and Art to Science and Religion. A global community is creating and sharing content every day.

    Doberman has been appointed by Mojang to help them design their future service experience of Minecraft Education.

    – This is an amazing challenge to be part of. Our assignment is to design the intersection of the physical classroom and the digital world of Minecraft, to empower both teachers and players, says Stina Carlsson Reich, Account Director at Doberman.

    Let’s play!

  • Kids rule at SXSW!

    Posted February 27, 2015

    Doberman gets on stage at SXSW to talk about how kids changed the way we design for adults.

    On Friday, March 13th, Doberman will cross another milestone when our CEO Lisa Lindström, together with Customer experience consultant Kerry Bodine, takes to the stage at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. To be among the speakers at this great event is an honor, obviously, but also a wonderful chance to spread a little of the Doberman love to a wider audience (estimated attendance: 133 000 visitors).

    Lisa and Kerry will be talking about how Doberman harnesses the knowledge gathered from doing user experience research with kids, a notoriously impatient, oblivious to strategic intent, indifferent and disloyal target audience. Instead of viewing them as an insignificant outlier, Doberman placed them in the center. We figured if we are able to devise ways of reaching such a tricky group of users and getting them interested, why not let those methods influence and improve how we create innovative, intuitive and delightful products and services for users of all ages?
