Andreas Kleiner –
Swedish design director committed to democratizing technology.

Hej! I'm Andreas. I help companies and start-ups build meaningful products and experiences.

? Currently Area lead @ Business emerging technology group @Microsoft, focused on AI/Copilot, Front-line work solutions, Mixed Reality, IoT, and design systems while contemplating and lecturing about wicked problems around inclusive design+ethics within AI+tech.

More recently, I've worked with Artefact & Microsoft on everything from AR/VR/MR design to big data, data visualization, and motion graphics.

This portfolio is being built in real-time. Keep watching!

I started my design journey 2006, and for the last 12 years, I've worked taking 0-day/incubation products to market, focused on new technology, core features, interaction design, and design systems. The last 5 years, I've been leading teams at the business-technology-group at Microsoft developing the new Fluent+AI design system, building the design and interaction system for flow products (15), and taking Conversational AI (Copilot Studio) from incubation to market, and commercializing new technology into Microsoft's enterprise suite of products.

Before that I built meaningful experiences with Artefact Group, where I sense of government data for USAFacts, designed LuminOS and Apps for MagicLeap, and worked on how we will use augmented reality in the future. I helped Microsoft OneNote launch on Surface/tablets focusing on inking and education and helped the visually impaired community use new technology to play football and navigate the cityscape. 

I love to talk about design and can be found on either LinkedIn or Twitter, or go old-school and hit me up on hello@andreaskleiner.com
