Hi! And welcome to my website.
I'm Ståle! Who are you?
My name is
Nice to meet you . How are you feeling today?
Let's get back to business. How may I help you?
Tell me about yourself
My full name is Ståle Torger Stokke, and this is me
I'm a designer with a Masters degree in Industrial Design Engineering from NTNU.
And I love the challenge of making complex technology user friendly.
Please tell me more about yourself
I'm from Trondheim, Norway. In my spare time I work a little on apps and websites, this one for instance. I also enjoy watching football and going to concerts.
Currently I'm working at IWMAC AS, creating services to monitor energy consumption. I have previously worked with sports analysis technology and as a design consultant.
How do you work as a designer?
I like to start with user research and observations to generate useful insights. Then create a concept and a prototype that can be tested on users.
The last couple of years I've also been responsible for linking business development with software development. This means working closely with software engineers to communicate the intention of a concept, and collaborate to find the best solutions.
Would you like to see some of my projects?
I'll take a look later
Please show me your portfolio
Are you ready? 3

Oops! Time flies in good company. We have to catch up later, my dinner is ready.
Feel free to stick around. Talk to you later :)
A digital service for everyone working with food safety within a company.
At IWMAC we have created a service to make it easier for a company to comply with the regulations given by the food authorities. The service has three applications, each with a main focus. My responsibility as a UX-designer has been user insights, and to be the link between business development and software development.
Most employees are required to do a set of daily measurements and tasks, in addition to customer service. When digitalizing their daily routines it was important for us to decrease the workload and time consumption compared to using pen and paper. The interface had to be intuitive, with simple and clear instructions on how to complete a task. The Probe app is created for the employees, and focuses on doing tasks and to automate temperature surveillance.
The store manager is the accountable part if an employee doesn't follow the routines. Live feedback on task completion was the most important focus for a store manager. The Manager app gives a live reflection on every task in Probe. When a task is completed in Probe, this is reflected live in Manager. When a deviation is reported in Probe, the report is sent directly to the Manager app. This gives the store manager the option to react instantly on every case.
For more detailed information and statistics on performance the store manager can use the web application CheckPoint Dashboard. As on the Manager app, Dashboard also reflects any action done on Probe. In addition custom reports and statistics can be created to better evaluate the store's performance. Dashboard is also were the service can be managed. The store manager can set up which tasks should be done when and how.
Many stores are part of a chain. And most chains have a hierarchical structure. The Dashboard app can be configured with similar hierarchical structure, and give management on each level an overview of their responsible areas and stores. Tasks and routines decided by higher management can be managed and distributed to all stores in the chain. A high level of flexibility in task management was important as every chain operates with different levels of top-down control.
Software, App and service for golf swing analysis.
As an in-house designer at Initial Force I worked with connecting the Swing Catalyst video analysis software with an app and a cloud service (Swing Catalyst Online). I was the designer of both the app and the service. The goal was to make communication between golf coach and student easier. We created a service were videos and communication could be shared directly between the 3 applications, and between all users of the service.
Informational video explaining the Swing Catalyst applications and eco-system, Ståle Torger Stokke 2016
With the advanced video analysis software a golf coach can receive swings captured by a student using the app. While recording a lesson the coach can do an analysis of the golf swing using comparison, slow motion and other tools. The lesson can then be sent back to the student with helpful tips on how to improve the golf swing.
The app can be used to capture swings for sharing, or the users can do their own analysis of the swing. Basic tools for analyzing your technique was included: drawing tools, frame stepping, zoom and side by side video comparison to other golf swings.
All videos captured with the app can be uploaded and shared with others on the cloud service, Swing Catalyst Online. Instant video sharing and availability across all applications was important to ensure our goal was accomplished.
Identify the emotional responses connected to the use of a camera and shooting photos. I interviewed 8 people between 20-34 years old.
Both genders show a desire to capture good photos. A technical advanced appearance may discourage those without a technical interest. However the desire to be perceived by others as a skilled photographer, may still be present. Good photos encourage the user to develop further and explore new techniques. It's important to trigger the ability to capture good photos early to ensure continued use.
Identify the emotional responses associated with holding and touching shapes. I tested 8 people between 20-27 years old.
Safe to hold was an important emotion: "I don't want to drop my camera." Many of the users wanted a camera that gives credibility as someone interested in photography, but shouldn't be too advanced to use.
With a good lens and interesting angles it's easier to shoot good photos. The camera must support the most common lens mount, to provide access to a wide selection of good lenses. A cylindrical camera extended by the lens, creates a tubular shape which makes it easy to control the direction you are pointing the camera. Bluetooth connection between phone and camera encourages the photographer to take the camera away from eye height, and shoot from other interesting angles.
Master thesis - Industrial design engineering Norwegian University of Technology and Science 2012
Genoa is a lounge chair for homes and public areas, expanding the Spinnaker series. The goal of the thesis was to bring the chair from concept to production. The project was in cooperation with Spinnaker Norway AS.
A prototype was built to test both the concept and production methods. Real methods were used in collaboration with potential sub-contractors.
A lot of attention was given to the choice of materials and assembly of the chair. Stringers made of spring steel for a comfy feel, held together by brackets and steel tubes. The sailcloth is strapped to a steel tube seat frame, using industrial velcro for easy assembly. The pillow has a soft outer layers for comfort and a firm core for stability. Split into three parts with extra padding in the middle part for improved lumbar support.
This is a spare time project in collaboration with some friends. We had this simple idea about a word puzzle game, and created a prototype to test the game mechanics. It turned out to be a quite fast and engaging game between two people. So we decided to develop the game and try to get it published. We are still working on the last part, but soon maybe you too can try it.
The app is built with Xamarin and the MvvmCross framework. I did the UI design and the layout coding. For the iOS app I built the layouts in Xcode using auto layout for adaptive behavior. Layouts for Android I coded in Visual Studio, for both phone and tablet size screens. My friends did all the magic bits and pieces that makes the app actually work.
