Hi, my name is Amir Ismail and I am a data strategist living in Stockholm, Sweden.

I grew up in a small town north of Sweden called Hudiksvall. After high school I moved to Stockholm and joined the military service for 10 month. A Few years later I returned to my studies to pursue a diploma in international marketing from Umeås University.

Why Marketing and Data? One thing I appreciate in life is learning. I strive to learn new things everyday. Working with marketing has allowed me to do research and analyze data in order to make decisions. T ex. data is a ways of objective communication form for us human being to understand, which makes it easier to define the problem and to reach a solution. I believe working with data can provide a shortcut to the goal. If you like to know more, do not hesitate to contact me.

Our mission was to create a data concept for an ad campaign for a multinational corporation. During 3 weeks we worked with Rijksmuseum Api and Face recognition api. The result is this website : RijksEmotions

We created a website that uses a face recognition API. It renders your gender, expression and age. Based on that data the program shows you a painting from the Rijksmuseum’s collection that have the same variables. Your emotions will shorten the distance between you and the paintings.
