“Born in 1971, and born again in 1984, when I got a Commodore 64 from my father. From that day I’ve been a computer nerd. I attended art school in Stockholm and trained to become a professional illustrator. Shortly after that I met my first Mac and it was love at first sight.
After art school I was snatched up by a small ad agency called Elfwendahl & Co where I worked as a 3D animator and illustrator, and soon become an Art Directors assistant. In 1996 I was recruited to Grey in stockholm, where I worked through the dot-com era in their interactive department, making websites for clients such as Ericsson, SAS, and Telia. In 1999 I came up with a campaign concept for Procter & Gamble that was made Best Practice for interactive campaigns that year. In 2000 I left Grey to spend five years as a freelancer. During that time I among other things designed the menu system for popular shooter Battlefield 2.
In 2006 I joined the team at Ogilvy One in Stockholm. As Digital Art Director I worked with pan-european web campaigns, mostly for DHL, but for many of Ogilvys major clients.”
