YOUR HOSTS

James Royal-Lawson

Designer, web analyst and optimiser. I’ve been experimenting with, creating and managing digital activities since going online as a teenager in 1986 and professionally since the late 90s.

Over 100 consultancy projects spanning small companies to large multi-nationals. Using data to feed the design process makes my eyes light up. My degree is in economics.

My reason for doing what I do
I have an endless curiosity. My work gives me the opportunity to constantly feed that curiosity and never stop learning. I get a huge amount of satisfaction from planting the seeds that eventually grow to allow people to make the progress they were hoping for.

Per Axbom

Designer, coach and visual explainer. Computer geek since 1982. Over 60 consultancy projects have included  booking systems, search tools and citizen services, with a focus in later years on e-health and online therapy. My degree is in communication science.

My reason for doing what I do
I feel most rewarded when I am able to help others overcome challenges and reach “aha” moments. I’ve found that the best way for me to do this is by listening and bridging knowledge gaps through a multimedia language. To stay relevant, and have fun, I make sure to also push myself to learn, explore and experiment with new formats.
