Design, layout, research and communication

Hi! I’m Michael. Welcome to my playground.

In my day-to-day life I do development of partnerships and new educational games at Communico. I used to do research, development and communication on educational research at University of Southern Denmark. I have made a lot of different and amazing stuff, such as scientific papers, courses, logos, posters, pamphlets, and web editing. Some of it is displayed below.

In my spare time I help on a couple of projects. Mainly, the development of ConnieHedegaard.com.

treangle of ideas, build and perspective

As mentioned this is more of a playground than a portfolio, as I use it to test and develop my skills.
For instance, I am implementing and learning grid, Shoelace.io (beta) and Bootstrap 5 (alpha), so if parts of the page looks wonky this is probably why.

I try to build based on some core ideas and elements, these can be based on certain wishes or learning oppoturnities. For instance, I try to minimize the amount of tracking, cookies, and storage on the websites I help create.

Feel free til contact me via the '@' in the corner.

Kind regards,
Michael

I designed the layout and assisted editorially on this danish book for children about H.C Ørsted – the scientist who discovered electromagnetism.

'Playing with Fandom' – an scientific articles in MedieKultur

Playing with Fandom

An article, which addresses fandom from the perspective of LEGO Fans

In this article we argue that fandom becomes a way to create bridges between a variety of users and corporate interests. Although all the active participants on LEGO Ideas self-identify as AFOLS (adult fans of LEGO), they do not necessarily agree about what constitutes an interesting LEGO Ideas project.
