Projects

I've been involved in quite a few projects over the past 10 years. Here's a few I'm proud of.

Cognita

A simpler everyday life – for everyone

Cognita provides innovative aids for people with cognitive impairment and communication difficulties.

Together with another designer from Dekode, I assisted Cognita with the design of a new interface for managing time and structure for people with cognitive impairment. The new interface was intended to expose the distinction between administration and presentation of content so that everyday life for all users became easier.

Axel has a unique way of getting to the core of the task and solving it. Definitely one of the best designers I've ever worked with.
Hilde Falck-Andersen, CEO at Cognita Inc.

From consumers to creators

Engineer for the Week (EFTW) aims to spark curiosity for computer science through the creative use of project-based tech experiences, allowing students from all backgrounds to evolve from consumers into creators.

I assisted the EDMOD team in Facebook along with a development team from Dekode when the program needed a new website.

Join the treasure hunt! – Senior UX Designer in Oslo, Norway – Axel Ferdinand Giæver – Prototypen
SoBo Community

Join the treasure hunt!

SoBo Community is a Norwegian startup working to make secondhand and vintage fashion as attractive and available as regular shopping.

As a product owner and design lead, I helped SoBo through the transformation from a startup within clothes rental, to a tailored e-commerce solution in providing exclusive vintage fashion.

Axel grasped our concept and all details quickly, challenged our assumptions in constructive ways and came up with good ideas on how to improve our solution.
Anjali Bhatnagar, CEO and founder of SoBo Community



Find answers to all the hard questions – Senior UX Designer in Oslo, Norway – Axel Ferdinand Giæver – Prototypen
Arbeidsgiverguiden

Find answers to all the hard questions

Arbeidsgiverguiden is designed for managers that receives questions about everything from vacation days and overtime pay to termination and HSE, and often has to answer "I'll come back to you". It's easier than ever for employers to find answers.

Axel is a very nice, fast and skilled UX unicorn who designs with code – it won't be more efficient.
Joakim Howlid, Head of innovation, products and services at Hovedorganisasjonen Virke

Together with the product team at Virke, I conduct regular user tests and work continuously to improve and further develop the service.

Kløkt

A training program for clearer management

Kløkt is the training program that advances traditional leadership development and elevates leadership training to new heights. With Emil Fabio on graphic design and illustration we have managed to launch a website I am really, really proud of - in less than 20 man-days!

It has been absolutely wonderful to work with Axel from the first meeting to the launch.
Tommy Lund Andersen, Partner Inovati

The result is an aesthetic challenger hand-coded in Statamic CMS, with a dynamic course calendar and a Stripe integrated registration form.

2019 - 2020

Statens Vegvesen

eTeori – a system for administering and conducting the theory exam, as well as developing and quality assurance of examination assignments. Show more

In a longer collaboration with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, I designed the new system of task developers, sensors and test administrators in the Roads Administration to create the tasks that you solve when taking a driver's license. Part of the assignment also involved redesigning the interface you encounter as a candidate when taking the theory exam.

Axel has very good collaboration skills, a good overview, a look for what works and is very effective. Through his good sketches and designs that guide us through the system, we as users feel that the system is intuitive.
Karsten Nikolaisen, Senior Advisor in the Norwegian Public Roads Administration
