    #copywriting #translation #consulting

It takes a native Swede, to get your words and tone right and avoid the typical misconceptions and prejudices in your dialouge with the Swedish market; I've spent nearly 20 years working and living in Copenhagen and Denmark. The idea that Danes and Swedes understand each other is common, but in practice, in real life talking, beyond fotball and ski holidays, in discussions and negotiations, words can become as awkward and foggy as Kattegatt; it's easy to get lost, or confused, in translation.

Offline we can make up for that with gestures, humor and further explainations – or worst case, switch over to English. But online it means a ’click’ on the back button – and, for your business, a lost opportunity. Get in touch!

Understand your customer with Human Centered Design

Use design thinking to gather insights for better understanding your customers and to get in tune with your Nordic business partners. With Hallogos you will have a seasoned Swedish Danish designer, advisor, researcher and discussion partner at your hand.

The Value Proposition Canvas – developed by Alex Osterwalder at Strategyzer – is an efficient and simple to adapt framework to find the fit between your customers jobs and your value propositions. I use the tools from Strategyzer and IDEO as external lecturer at DMJX in Copenhagen.

Are you interested in how your organisation could benefit from Human Centered Design and the essential tools from IDEO, Strategyzer et.al. Let me inspire you with an agile and pragmatic approach. Get in touch!

Are you fed up with long wordy PMs to explain stuff?

Good copy is mostly short! Bring in sketching and storytelling to improve the chances that people get the points and understand your prototypes.

Are you interested in prototyping with sketches, graphics and visualisations; Or why not a classic photo essay to bring out the insights from our research. Get in touch!
