CV
DTU

Kåre magnus sand solvåg

I have a background in design engineering from DTU and interaction design from Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. With my background, I am bridging the technical and user-centric approaches of design and development, with a broad set of tools and objective thinking I set out to problem-solve. My main focus lies in people-centered research, prototyping and applications of technology that can empower users. I enjoy my work best in group work, when I can explore and dig into unknown topics and think analytically about problems and solutions. 

In a workplace I look for intense and passionate teamwork, work with diverse team members and diverse projects in different industries, where I can be part of the whole design process. I believe people centered research should make out the foundations of any project, developed through iterative prototyping, from the lowest fidelity to the highest appropriate fidelity. I find great passion in designing for social impact and are very interested in deploying design thinking in this domain. In my future workplace, I need to be challenged and learn together with my collegues. 

Throughout the last six years, I have worked in social care, metalurgy and product-service design for the medical industry. In February 2016 I co-founded a text service for Refugees, based out of Copenhagen, a continuation of my final project from CIID in 2015.
