    Doberman designs the world's first complete Mental Health First Aid Kit

    In today’s world, mental health problems have become just as common as physical health issues. That’s why we’re very proud of the new first aid kit we’ve designed together with the Swedish Agency for Disability Policy Co-ordination, Handisam.

    The New First Aid Kit is an integrated service and product with the aim to prevent long-term sick leave by erasing taboos when it comes to attitudes towards mental health. The service integrates a wall mounted first aid kit for workplaces (with the traditional bandages and wet wipes) with an easy-to-use self evaluation test, a hotline direct number to a certified mental health care professional and a quick guide how to help a colleague.

    The core idea originally came from “Sommardesignkontoret”, a design project for undergraduate students started by SVID and directed, mentored and hosted by Doberman in 2012. The New First Aid Kit is developed together with our partnerns Swedbank, Sveriges Byggindustrier and EON and is currently being tested against 1 000 people around Sweden.

  • Kids rule at SXSW!

    Posted February 27, 2015

    Doberman gets on stage at SXSW to talk about how kids changed the way we design for adults.

    On Friday, March 13th, Doberman will cross another milestone when our CEO Lisa Lindström, together with Customer experience consultant Kerry Bodine, takes to the stage at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. To be among the speakers at this great event is an honor, obviously, but also a wonderful chance to spread a little of the Doberman love to a wider audience (estimated attendance: 133 000 visitors).

    Lisa and Kerry will be talking about how Doberman harnesses the knowledge gathered from doing user experience research with kids, a notoriously impatient, oblivious to strategic intent, indifferent and disloyal target audience. Instead of viewing them as an insignificant outlier, Doberman placed them in the center. We figured if we are able to devise ways of reaching such a tricky group of users and getting them interested, why not let those methods influence and improve how we create innovative, intuitive and delightful products and services for users of all ages?
