Morten Winther

Hello, I'm Morten.

I love to combine big-picture thinking with detail-oriented craftmanship to create impactful digital products.

My name is Morten Trøstrup Winther. I'm a Danish product designer and user researcher living in the San Fransisco Bay Area. I work in the intersection between business development, technology, and design craftsmanship.
My design practice encompasses all aspects of product design from generative research and product strategy to concept development and prototyping. I'm currently shaping the future of cars at Volkswagen ERL.

I'm really good at...

  • Experimenting with ideas, sketches, and prototypes.
  • Generating actionable user insights.
  • Navigating uncertainty and conflicting information.
  • Challenging assumptions and pose big questions.
  • Facilitating design processes and workshops.
  • Nitpicking about wording and content.
