Profile

I am a freelance Digital Designer from Gothenburg, Sweden with over 17 years of experience.

I specialize in user interface design, system design, interactive experiences, applications, campaign and heavy UI websites on all major platforms and I am obsessed with pixel-perfection. 

Over the years I have worked with clients such as Google, Buzzfeed, American Airlines, Volvo, First Class Flyer, San Diego Moore Cancer Center, Kurt Salmon, Cignium, Goretex, Fazer, Langley, Epson, Pfizer and the World Cultural Museum among others. 

I have previously worked as a Lead Senior Designer and Creative Director at a Gothenburg-based agency and hold a Bachelor degree in International Marketing at Pace University in New York as well as a Bachelor degree in Graphic Design at ITC University in Gothenburg, Sweden. 

I am a creative, highly organized and self-driven designer with a strong conceptual approach. I understand agency culture and corporate dynamics and thrives in both fast-paced teamwork environments and on independent projects. I always aim to be innovative and create groundbreaking user experiences on all platforms.

I have extensive experience of working closely with developers on the majority of my projects so I know exactly what it takes to deliver assets and style guides that make the development flow smoothly.

I am available for freelance / contract / remote work around the globe
