Are Hovland Nielsen

Visiting Faculty
Country: Norway

Before Are joined live|work he was part of a start-up that developed an online music service where you could upload all your music and share it with your friends. He was part of the design team as an interaction designer and took part in the project from its inception. During that time he experienced both the development and the daily running of the service.

At live|work, Are takes part in most of the projects in the Nordic office in one way or another. He is an experienced Flash programmer and holds a Master’s degree in Interaction Design from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. This enables him to contribute to all phases of a project, whether its insights, design work, concept development, evidencing, analysis or pixel pushing.

In his spare time Are enjoys going climbing. After having dealt with intangible challenges at work it’s refreshing for him to tackle some physical ones in the evening.
