I like creatings things. May it be visual, audio, or in code. I’m fascinated by the process of building and designing software for humans, and I’ve got a huge passion for quality, simplicity, and interfaces and code which simply do more with less.
All these things boiled down to me freelancing in web design, development, and graphic design. I got a chance to work with great people on fun and interesting projects. After a sabbathical of two years, I decided in 2011 to return to school. I applied for the Software Engineering program at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. I later plan on taking a master’s degree in Interaction Design.
I’m very much into the thought that people in the IT and software business should be multi-talented. A programmer should have some clues about alignment and typography, and a visual designer should be able to prototype his or her designs in code. I feel like a Jack of All Trades, since I love design, but study and work with programming and code.
I’ve actually gotten a few things done so far. Check out my over at StackExchange Careers. If you’re interested in a more formal resume, please give me shout.
What others are saying
At a time when most designers would have thought twice about taking over the layout duties of a small magazine, poorly designed by the publisher (yes, that’s me) himself and the only instructions given was “go nuts”, Johan stepped up to the plate and delivered in style. He is an absolute pleasure to work with as he is amazingly creative, never takes short cuts and thus maintaining a very high creative output and, to put it mildly, transformed my small shoddy magazine to a successful digital publication.
I could never have done it without Johan, and now that I have the great joy of working with Johan almost on a daily basis I could never imagine doing it without him. I hope I never will.
Thanks for reading!
