If I was a Copywriter this text would be so much better but I’m an Art Director and this text will take me far too long to write (I’ll tell you how long if we ever meet over a coffee).
Some people would probably call me Interactive Art Director or Digital Art Director but I think it’s all about definitions. In short I love to come up with great looking visual concepts and see it through to implementation.But wait, there's more
I designed and coded my first first website in 1998, it was black and yellow and featured information about my fish as well as Leonardo DiCaprio (Post-Titanic). That's when I started developing my love for creating beautiful designs and finding out how to make them tick (even though that first page was far from beautiful).
I’m currently working at a Swedish app-startup called Plotagon where we built an app that allows it’s users to create their own animated movies from text. I started there four years ago as a Graphic Designer and Frontend Developer and now I’m working as Art Director and Product Manager.
Apart from building a cohesive experience for our users with an award winning UI, I have also worked on evolving our visual “Plotagon universe” with characters and content as well as communication, strategy and marketing.
I attended Interactive Art Director at Hyper Island Stockholm between 2014 and 2015 so that I could work more with conceptualizing, ideation, group dynamics and much more. Working with real clients and real cases helped me to gain experience and knowledge to become a better Art Director.
I did my Art Director internship at FCB Inferno in London where I worked with clients like Havaianas, Pearsons, Acqua di Parma and BMW. I loved it and was offered to stay. But after a long and hard decision over whether to stay in London or go back to Stockholm, with my girlfriend and our cat, I decided for Stockholm.
One thing I like equally as much as my girlfriend, cat and Leo DiCaprio is coffee. So if you’re interested, let’s sit down and have a cup.
