App concept design for the premiere opening of a culture house in Jönköping.
They wanted to make it possible for the user to browse through shows, book tickets and show the view from a specific seat, all in a smart and efficient way.
The goal was to come up with a smart way to help people with cognitive disabilities to communicate. While researching different options, Blisspad seemed like an interesting way to go.
Blisspad is a language with lots of potential. It is flexible and complex and consists of over 4500 symbols that can be combined into fully-fledged sentences.
Using an iPad gives the user a good overview of the content as well as ability to navigate through the app with ease.
Typing get alot easier and faster when combined with the category field and the assistive field which holds suggestions, conjugations, word classes and more. The user can also save sentences that are often used and by clicking the sentence field the iPad will read the sentence out loud.

I was working with the Vkusomaniya project during my internship at Icemobile in Amsterdam and was in charge of big parts of the interaction design as well as documentation.
Vkusomaniya is a loyalty program for the Russian supermarket Azbuka Vkusa in collaboration with Zwilling.
The website is fully responsive and also has an Android and iPhone app.
People shopping in Azbuka Vkusa stores can collect stamps in the app and get discounts on cookware from Zwilling.
My name is Simon Ghebressilasie, a 23 year old Graphic Designer living in Falköping, Sweden. I do what I do because I love it.
Design caught my attention some years ago when I studied at Hyper Island, Mobile Design & Development in Karlskrona, and it still has it.
I'm a small guy but my interest in food is big, does that add up?
I spend most of my time in Photoshop, reading design blogs etc. Also I love music and photography!
In early 2013 I finished my internship as an interaction designer at Icemobile agency in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
