My Story

With a solid background in graphic design and extensive experience in various projects, I believe I can make a positive contribution to a project. Photoshop is one of my strengths, so in addition to graphic design and production work, I can also offer high-quality photo retouching. I have considerable experience in creating posters, covers, and layouts, and have produced hundreds of successful covers for the music industry.

I live in Gustavsberg/Stockholm with my wife and our two children. In my free time, I enjoy socializing with friends, playing golf, and indulging in my interests in music, technology, computers, interior design, and film. I also play the guitar some times.

I have run my own business for many years and am accustomed to handling the entire design process, from color and form to typography and retouching. My projects have been highly varied, and I have worked with clients such as Wella, Marabou, Gevalia, NyföretagarCentrum, Liber, Peab and Kungsleden. I enjoy working on web design without coding and have experience with WordPress and Wix (Spoil.se is an example).

 

My career began as a graphic designer and typesetter, giving me a strong foundation in text processing and typography. When computers became a tool in graphic design, I helped start a graphic department at work focusing on image scanning. A few years later, I started working as a graphic designer/art director and collaborated intensively with companies like Wella and Mondelēz. I ran a successful production agency with two colleagues.

Skills

ADOBE INDESIGN

Almost all the work I do passes through InDesign at some point. Here, I create print materials such as magazines, banners, exhibition walls, posters, CD covers, flyers, roll-ups, and advertisements. I handle all deliveries to the print shop myself.

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP

I enjoy working with retouching. It often involves creating photo montages with several images combined, for example, a cover. Photoshop is part of my daily toolkit, and I feel very comfortable using it. I would like to work more with images, especially photo montages.

ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR

Here, I mostly create logos and illustrations.

MICROSOFT Word/Office Suite

I have created templates in Word but mostly use Word to transfer text to InDesign. I have worked quite a bit in PowerPoint. Even nicer presentations can be made in programs like Apple's Keynote.

I have some experience working in Adobe Premiere Rush and WordPress.
