People make it happen

Designing for a better world.

Curiosity has always been the driving force behind the industrial- and digital product design at Design-People. Ever since 2005, we have been asking the questions that take our clients’ businesses to the next level. We prioritize understanding the needs, motivations, and barriers for each user in order to find out where the meaningful value lies for the business.

We know design isn’t just about making a product easy on the eyes. Our goal is to simplify and improve product experiences by applying a strategic design thinking approach to our work. In the end, we believe this leads to better solutions for people and for the planet.

Customizable OEM solution

Design-People’s involvement in designing the new UWG5® thermostat experience, was to help OJ Electronics create a platform that is flexible and customizable. Shaping a solution where global design styles can be changed depending on the clients needs and wishes.



The solution manifest itself in a connected product experience between the physical and digital world. A sleek and simple thermostat and a user centric app in a universal and slightly anonymise design, connecting the experience that creates the foundation for a customizable OEM solution.

Co-creation design process

OJ Electronics have a great know-how internally with in-house ressources from innovation to implementation. Design-People was the link between the vision and the reality, helping maintain and find sustainable compromises between business goals, user experience and implementation constraints.    



Through weekly reviews and scrum meetings, our design team played a big role in facilitating an iterative process. Design and implementation progressed concurrently, exploring and testing ad hoc. This approach ensured a seamless transition from the initial concept to the finished product.
