This is an Urbanscale Update titled “Urbanscale to advise Helsinki-based interaction design consultancy Nordkapp,” written by Adam Greenfield in New York on the 18th of October 2010.

Helsinki’s premier user-experience and interaction-design practice, Nordkapp, has invited Urbanscale to advise them on questions of urban informatics. Creative director Sami Niemela says, “For us, this collaboration is another landmark in the evolution of Nordkapp as a world-class design consultancy.”

My collaboration with Nordkapp over the years I was working at Nokia makes it clear to me that their guiding ambition is to bring the care and craft the world associates with Finnish design to questions of digital interaction. It’s an ambition I share, support and would like to see realized.
