Hi, I'm Michael, a freelance creative developer and interaction designer.
For several years I have worked as consultant in Aarhus, Amsterdam and now Copenhagen.
I collaborate with clients and agencies worldwide.

People hire me to build and animate interfaces, apps and websites from scratch.
I work as lead (frontend) developer and/or as the link between designers and developers.
I also do a lot of experience-, concept- and interaction design.

Let’s work together:

B&O Play

websites

B&O Play

Websites (2014-now)

Since 2014 I have worked as lead frontend developer on more than 30 product- and campaign sites for B&O Play and various agencies.
Next to this, we relaunched the entire website in 2015 with a new responsive design. This meant developing new modules (integrated with Sitecore) and reproducing old modules and pages. I built a bunch of custom galleries, menus, charts, advanced product selectors and much more.

I also contribute with concept-, UX- and interaction designs.
The websites have received numerous awards and global attention.

Made with Magic People Voodoo People & a little bit of Trouble. Sitecore by Alpha Solutions & some occasional help from Anders Hallundbæk. Special credits to Asbjørn & Søren for bringing me on board - you guys rock!

Visit beoplay.com or unfold the beautiful SS17 site or maybe get up close to the Portraits site.

See some of the Awwwards we received.

Wild Life Centre

installations

Wild Life Centre

Museum installation at Bear Park in Flå, Norway (2014-2015)

For this brand new Wild Life Centre I was commissioned by Spekter to work on a series of installations. I was in charge of the production of:
- 4 Kinect (3D camera) experiences
- 3 touchscreen apps
- a wall projected app (controlled by a tablet)
- a quiz screen with physical buttons (bear paws)
- a website

I delivered complete interaction designs and developed all the installations. I also setup remote access and a 24 hour power save schedule for each PC.

I enjoyed making this for Spekter with graphic designs from Søren Smidt & backend provided by Rune Bonsu.

See more in this Youtube video or at the museum website.

Opsundbay

fashion website

Opsundbay

Fashion website (2017)

I hooked up with Playdate-Studio to create this unique fashion website for Opsundbay, a new Danish luxury label.
We developed a concept of getting up close instantly and showing the brilliant details of the products in high resolution. We implemented an original interaction paradigm of mixing scroll and pan to give a fantastic overview and a luxurious experience of each product.

Designed by superduo Playdate-Studio.

Er Du Nice?

mobile web game

Er Du Nice?

Anti-bullying game (2014)

The nice people at Stupid Studio asked me to help them develop this little web game. It's part of a campaign from The Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) aimed towards bullying in primary schools.
The game features a bunch of different levels/situations in which the user can select different solutions. It all adds up to a final diploma telling you just "how nice you are".

Coded for Stupid Studio who made all the beautiful characters.

Go play the game or read more about the campaign.

The 100 Meter Scroll

web game

The 100 Meter Scroll

The concept is simple: ”Who's the fastest scroller in the digital world”. So far more than 4 million visitors have accepted the challenge!

Made with the amazing guys from momlookwhatimade.

Nørgård Mikkelsen

Website (2017)

The oldest, and one of the most respected advertising agencies in Denmark, Nørgård Mikkelsen, asked me to help with the frontend development of their new website.
I worked closely together with the UX & Design team and developed prototypes for interactions and motion.
I then built the entire website with a solid focus on animations and great user experiences.

The website was developed directly for Nørgård Mikkelsen.
The backend was developed by LAIT.
