Education

Graphic Design (Media Design), Berghs School of Communication, 2002-2004

Ever since it was founded nearly seventy years ago, Berghs has been at the forefront of education within the Swedish advertising and communication industry.

Graphic Design is a two-year full-time education with a focus on visual communication and graphic design across both traditional and new media.

The education unites practical application with theoretical teaching to meet the challenges of contemporary design. A graphic designer must be a complete communicator, able to bring together strategic, critical and creative faculties. The focus of the course is on problem-solving and applying ideas into graphical forms. A major emphasis is placed on typography as well as on other graphic tools that students develop to a professional level during their education.

The education is divided into a series of courses that focus on graphic design for print and interactive media and moving graphics. Practical exercises are interwoven with theoretical studies in a range of ideas including: Idea and concept development, design history, communications theory, and visual semiotics.

Career

Developer, Oxys, 2013–present

My current position, a web consultancy in Stockholm where we do all sorts of fun stuff, like Drupal!

Freelance developer and designer, 2003–2013

As a freelancer I have done a lot of graphic design but since a couple of years I am entirely focused on coding. My portfolio contains a mix of projects I have contributed the designed for, only programmed, or where I have done both. Even though I am hired only for programming, clients usually appreciate my sense for design, it lets me "fill in the blanks" where the designer has not created any explicit artwork and saves a lot of time. I do most of my website building work with my favorite CMS, PHP-based Drupal.

Art Director, Södra Teatern, 2005–2008

Södra Teatern is a venue in Stockholm for performing arts and music. I was part of the in-house marketing team, art directing and planning the marketing of more than 600 events per year. This included a visual communication profile and hundreds of posters, brochures, ads and online marketing campaigns. I also worked with the in-house signage, creating a system of automatically updated digital displays running Adobe Flash applications.

Web Developer / Designer, Euroseek.com, 1999–2001

Euroseek was a search engine and web portal in the style of Yahoo. I was part of the developer team, doing mostly frontend coding.
