  1. As a consultant I see many work ads. Some are good, but a lot of them are almost to the point where I wonder if the people writing them know what they are asking for. It takes a while to write a work ad, so not only are you wasting your own time, but that of those who are looking for work as well. So here are my five best tips on how to write good work ads to get the right people for the job. Describe the problem you need solved Don't add buzz words Have a person that knows the craft write the ad Be honest about your work process Don't ask for unicorns

  2. A pretty good week have passed, and I am officially working again on two projects. I am also planning a presentation of Jira Service Desk as an ITSM tool for a company next week. To top that off I have also been going over my old book that I have been writing on and off for quite a white and I think I will put it up here on the site. Overall a very productive week to say the least. This week I started working on TheLeft, an Invision Community project that I am having a lot of fun with. I also confirmed a project for Martin & Servera where I will do a prestudy to implement Atlassian pr

  4. Last week IBM announced that the company would be moving some of its lower-margin lines of business into a new company and that IBM itself would focus on higher-margin cloud services. This comes after a long effort by IBM to diversify away from its legacy businesses. IBM will list its IT infrastructure services unit, which provides technical support for 4,600 clients in 115 countries as a separate company with a new name by the end of 2021. The new company will have 90,000 employees and its leadership structure will be decided in a few months. This new company has no official name yet and

  5. Figma has been in the news for designers for a while and it is in many ways praised as the one tool that will save us all. I am still skeptical because to me Figma is a generalist tool, and I am used to working with specialist tools. I will go over the selling points that Figma have listed as to why people make the switch from Sketch to Figma. On the Figma website they list 3 main selling points for making the switch: Less is more, Faster in the cloud and Better Teamwork. The collaboration aspect has been their biggest selling point so far as far as I am concerned, but let us go over them

  6. Ikea is making a bit of a splash recently with them announcing that they will not do the regular Black Friday sales and instead will buy back and resell products from their customers. This initiative called Buy Back Friday will happen in 27 of 31 markets globally between November 23rd to November 29th. When the rest of the world get ready for the biggest marketing campaign of the year, Ikea chooses to focus on a little different approach. The Buy Back Friday will focus on sustainability and not only will it reduce the number of things that are thrown away, it will also allow people to get

  7. After some time in beta Sketch 69 was released yesterday and it was a great release indeed. We finally got Color variables, which has been much requested. We also got the first taste of the components view which is a more structured way to manage all your assets. Finally we got a new insert window to make adding your assets into a design so very much easier and intuitive. Color variable This is amazing and I like this a lot, espcially combined with the Components view. For people who find it annoying or time consuming to turn your old layers and styles manually, there is a m

  8. This week was a good week. I had several good meetings, including one long conversation about methods and processes with the always amazing @Nicklas Egilie. I also had a good meeting with a company that might be a future client. We got some great new features from Sketch and I discussed a potential passive income opportunity. My cold is slowly letting go of me, which means slightly higher energy levels. This in turn mean my mind start spinning its creative juices a bit more. As we got the new features from Sketch with their Sketch 69 update I am eager to get into design mode again. I have

  9. With this latest Mac app update, we’re introducing three features that we think you’re going to love. First, Color Variables — a long-requested feature and a foundational building block for any design system. Then, a new Components View — a proper home for your document’s local Symbols, Text Styles, Layer Styles and Color Variables. Finally, a new Insert Window that makes finding and inserting Components easier than ever.

  10. If you work as a Service Designer or as someone who try to sell Service Design assignments, then you probably have noticed that it is not so easy. You probably have met your fair share of people that have no idea what you are talking about. Maybe you have written that off because the job title is still fairly new, but that is not always the case. Service Design from a UX perspective is still fairly confusing and poorly defined. It's a problem that you hear many definitions of what a UX Service Designer actually do, but there are other problems as well. Let us first look at how UX Service

    This is my version of the classic V-model for test where I have tried to clarify each part a bit as it is sometimes confusing. I know the V-model is old and it can sometimes confuse people whi think there is a timeline aspect to it. Still I think it can be useful so I made this one that you are free to use as you see fit. Enjoy!

  12. In the last few days I have felt a bit creative again after a few weeks of not feeling to good. Most of my cold seem to be gone and I have more energy again. As I work on adding all my raw data into the new software used at work for CV's I feel energized about making changes here as well. It is strange how adding data about projects, skills and things like that can inspire, but it does. In a spur of creation I have added some new design aspects of the site. This is directly related to the work I do to add my data into the system at work, or at least it is what inspired me. So I have

  13. I am now on my third week trying to find balance again and it's a slow process. This is because in order for me to find balance I need time alone and that is very hard to come by these days. It also require you to understand what you need, which is something that comes from experience and understanding yourself. For many this is very hard as we live in a world where being introvert is looked down upon, even if it is in all of us. I am fortunate that I was born and raised in a way that makes me more independent than most. My self esteem is pretty high and I have little to no interest in im

  14. This week I officially announced that I step down as the Atlassian User Group leader for Stockholm. This is a position I have held for 2 years now and it has been fun, but also a bit stressful. With my recent dip in energy levels I felt that this was taking a bit to much of my energy. That is why I stepped down so I can focus on regaining energy and placing it where it makes most sense. I took the position because I wanted to see if it would be possible to build a community around Atlassian. I had never attended the events, but I liked the idea. There was a decent group already with 250 o

  15. 2019 was not a very good year for me. It has been filled with stress and unexpected changes on all levels and I started to feel the signs of getting burned out. As a result I took some measures to counter that and it seems that this year will end on the positive side after all. I started my year at H&M, even though I did not think I should continue there. My work had been completed and it did not feel right to add another 6 months just to keep the work I was doing going. Working at H&M is good though and I got some new projects to manage, so I stayed on against my better judgement

  17. I look at the bills before me and frown, I ponder on my life, feeling stuck and lost, I rage against the world that changes, I get frustrated over not being in shape. Then I remember. I remember that there are those in the world that have no money, I remember there are those that have no freedom or hope of one, I remember that in some parts of the world change never happens, I remember that there are those that starve to death. Then I feel ashamed. What problems could I possibly have that others do not face a thousan

  19. As I move further inte Year 2 I have also updated this blog a bit. I am adding a new color that is brown-redish and I am updating the fonts on the banners. I am also restucturing things a bit to make this blog a little easier for me to understand how to organize. Adding a new color makes sense because this is very much a personal space for me and I want to make sure that is clearly visible. I have added some new icons as well, but that is less important right now. For me it was more important to define the areas and prevent the chaos I felt was going on. Now the blog is defined into

  24. Scrum Manager. Developing Architect. Fullstack Developer/Designer. The new roles are popping up left and right these days. Some are clearly just another way to say "generalist", but others are roles that have a very high chance of making people sick. Why do we see these ads? I think it is because the people writing them do not know the craft. For me, who actually is a generalist with pretty decent competence in multiple fields, I find these ads very amusing. Rather than writing that they need multiple roles filled, but only have budget for one, they make up new roles. Presumably in the ho

  26. Back in 2017 I tried to play Path of Exile, but I did not like it very much. The skill mechanics, the gritty graphics, the complex skill tree, none of it appealed to me. As Destiny 2 is pretty much dead at the moment with little to no activity to be interested in I figured I should give it a go again. So far it has been interesting and fun. To say that Path of Exile is a complex game is an understatement. Just the base mechanics with the huge passive skill tree and the skill gems are enough to scare some people away. I am still struggling with that so adding all the other mechanics on top

  27. Atomic UX Research. Sounds like something amazing, doesn't it? Something that will fit right into the modular design and development processes in Atomic Design. Unfortunately it is just a fancy name for having a proper documentation strategy for UX Research made up by UX Designers who work in poorly structured workplaces. When I first read the article "Foundations of atomic research", I had no idea what the person was talking about. Was it a process, a content strategy or maybe even how to present the findings. I looked up the Atomic UX Research further and found the article "What is Atom

  28. Not a day goes by it feels like, without another angry mob lash out at someone online over an allegation or perceived misbehaviour. People loose their income, their relations and some even take their own lives. The Cancel Culture has gone beyond cyber bullying and gone full inquisition. Burn the witch! To say that the Internet these days are hazardous to venture is an understatement. The social injustice mobs are everywhere and it seems any reference to race or incorrectness gain the response of blind hate with little to no reason. Sebastian Stan for example are under fire beca

Silently I stand before the mirror watching the man that stand before me I see his sad eyes and troubled face and I see the darkness clawing inside trying to break through I see the struggle and the tear that flow down his cheek as it succeed I see the fear and sorrow as it sweep over his face I see his lips form the words softly whispered to me please help me,I loose my footing I can no longer make sense of this world around me my soul ache from the evil I watch each day Is there no hope?

  30. Nothing make my skin crawl as deceit and greed and Disney is pretty good at that. Their release of Disney plus in Sweden probably takes the cake however and I instantly cancelled my subscription when I realised that they are drip feeding old content, just to make me stay as a paying customer longer. As Disney plus finally arrived in Sweden I was happy to jump in to enjoy the Mandalorian and season 7 of the Clone Wars. I paid for the monthly subscription because like many other services they don't have enough content for me to remain a constant subscriber. Instead I cycle the services to g

  31. I am down with yet another cold. I have been sick on and off for almost five weeks now and it is getting a bit tiersome to say the least. This during a period where finding a new assignment is crucial is far from optimal if I put it like that. I also just upgraded this site and I have things to do, but not the energy to do get it done. For weeks now I have had headche, low fever, coughing and a very soar throat. I do not sleep well and had to take some nose spray for about a week just to be able to sleep. I thought things was getting better last week, but then it hit me again so I had to
