About Me

My name is Espen Steinum and I'm a designer living in Oslo, Norway. I got my masters degree in Interaction Design here in Oslo in 2005, and have been designing for mobile phones since then.

I started my career designing Java games for mobile phones, but soon moved on to portals and other services specifically targeted for use on mobile devices. The last 2 years I have been working in a B2B company that specializes in mobile TV streaming, doing both interaction design and graphics design on smartphone apps for iPhone and other touch screen devices, as well as live TV portals for mobiles.
