Our method

Focused, lean iteration. As the client, you become a core part of Äventyret’s award-winning service design team — with members skilled in concept development, user interface design, graphic design and coding.

Then, over an intensive 2-3 week period, we work together in our Stockholm studio to:

  • Research and analyse the design challenge
  • Construct hypotheses gleaned from these research findings
  • Develop a prototype to test these hypotheses
  • Iteratively test and rebuild

The result is a prototype owned by you that provides a clear solution to the initial design challenge. This prototype can serve as a blueprint for a fully-functional polished product. You can choose to have Äventyret develop the project to completion, take it inhouse, or take it elsewhere. It’s yours to keep.

Focus first

We first define the problem we want to solve, and decide on how we measure success. As said by W. Pooh, “it is wise to ask someone what you are looking for before you begin looking for it.”

Thinking big

Creation through innovation is key when reaching beyond the obvious. It is important that we allow ourselves to dream, unfettered by pre-existing platforms or organizational boundaries.

Working with you

Our clients take an active part in working with our team. Together we can create awesome solutions more quickly, and immediately perform the reality check.

Up and away

Don’t spend valuable time on something that will never fly. Prototyping for proof-of-concept is a more efficient and pragmatic path to reaching lift-off.

About Äventyret

Äventyret is a service design studio focused on the rapid prototyping of mobile apps and websites. We are the latest project to emerge from the award-winning digital design agency Söderhavet. Äventyret is Söderhavet’s service design business — turned into a startup. Äventyret was founded because clients are demanding more agile production methods when designing digital services, to compete more effectively in a rapidly changing environment. We differentiate ourselves from other agencies by our methodology, but are adaptable in our work: We are a boutique design studio, a SWAT startup for hire, or a service design squad, depending on the client’s need. Äventyret is part of a family of specialist digital agencies:

360Stories: The making of

At Äventyret, we’ve been playing with virtual reality since the first Oculus Rift prototype became available back in 2013. We recently had a chance to build an immersive panorama viewer for Samsung’s virtual reality headset, the Samsung Gear VR, which incorporates the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to run Android apps built with Oculus’s software development kit.

Our client: 360Cities, the world’s largest repository of 360-degree panoramic images. Äventyret developed the concept, while our dev partner Prototyp wrote the code. The result was 360Stories, an app that lets photographers add voice-over narration to their immersive panoramas. We learned a lot from the process; read on for some of our take-aways.
