Hi, I'm Jesper Vestergaard.
This is my ego-site.
I'm a curious, calm and creative person living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I love to travel, no matter where I am, and I generally enjoy the digital expansion of the world.
I sometimes think about what I do as 'invisible design' or 'structural design'. For me the communicational aspect of both content and functionality is important. Take an idea; be it for a digital product or the functionality of a website, an event, or a story about our existence as human beings; How do we make it accessible, usable and understandable? How do we enable people to interact with it, share it and use it in their own lives?
