The Value of News is an interaction design diploma that aims to challenge the online news providers to think differently on how they present news. The project focuses on how to make the news relevant to the newsreaders and to meet their needs.
When a news event is unfolding, the online news providers are focused mainly on publishing articles as quickly as possible. This leads to a massive amount of information that requires a lot of the newsreader’s time and effort to be able to understand.
We want to make it easier to understand why a news event is happening and to see the event as a part of a bigger picture. By visualizing the relations between cases and organizing the information we want to create a less overwhelming news situation.
This is Ripple – the news relevant to you!

Gyldendal Publishing is considering to develop an app for iPhone and Android phone. The app will be based on the contents of the printed edition, Almanakk for Norge.
The content of the almanac is extensive, and it needs adjustments to work in a digital platform. There are a lot of specialized and good apps for each of the topics the almanac covers – how can the user benefit by having them all in one app? We worked a lot with reorganizing the Almanacs table of content. We gave some topics new names, merged some topics and categorized them.
Our concept is a calender mixed with a book. You have a dashboard with prefered information from today, based on your geolocation.
Seak is an interactive, wall hung informer that visualizes data from a live online ship map. Aimed at families who are at home while their family members are out fishing at sea. Seak is primarily for professionals at day trips.
A day at sea can be rough, the nature forces are strong and man becomes small and vulnerable out at the open sea. Family members are left helpless and concerned at home.
Seak will show if the chosen boat is at dock, heading away from the dock, or heading home. Seak gives comfort in showing real time updates from the boat.
This is a 3-week project in Tangible Interactions at the Oslo School for Architecture and Design, with Thomas Isak Johansen and Cecilie Liset.
