I conceptualize, design and make apps.

From the shaping of an idea, to building out UI mockups & prototypes, creating components, assets & app icons.

Open to contract work

Flourish Garden

I was tasked with creating PlanningMyGarden's design for their apps for iOS and visionOS, and creation of all of 3D models. Flourish Garden for Apple Vision Pro lets you experience your garden with environmental sounds, life-sized plants and the sun setting right on the horizon. Flourish makes it easy get a professionally designed garden by providing a number of customizable themes that makes it easy to get started.

repcount

RepCount

RepCount is a quick and simple workout log for strength training that has been downloaded more than 1 500 000 times. I introduced a modern aesthetic featuring clean card designs, a consistent application of system font sizes, and strategically placed splashes of color. The goal was to make the app more visually striking and consistent, and thus more appealing to users. The redesign has also lead to several promotional features on the App Store.

Plantry

Plantry

Plantry makes meal planning a pleasurable experience by helping you plan, shop and cook. Pick a plan, tweak it, or make one from scratch. The shopping list is made for you and you'll find new favorites to cook among the 1000 tasty recipes that are included. Plantry is made by Filibaba, a company I co-founded.

Handla

Handla

Handla has a huge built-in library of grocery items that makes it very convenient to quickly create a categorized grocery shopping list. One of the main features are the eco-conscious indicators that gently make you more aware of how your grocery shopping is affecting the world around you. We find that this often takes you by surprise; something you though was sustainable might actually have a high climate impact.

Quill

Quill

In 2020 I joined Quill to help improve the way teams communicate. Quill was built to give you only relevant notifications to help you focus on what's most important. You could quickly triage incoming conversations, act on the most important ones, and blissfully ignore the rest. In December of 2021, Quill was acquired by Twitter.

Swedish Railways

Swedish Railways

Between 2015 and 2020 I was hired through Bontouch as the lead mobile designer to help the state-owned Swedish Railways company make a first class app for iOS and Android, as well as Apple Watch. The app lets you buy a trip, and then guides you on your journey while keeping you informed of traffic information. It's made for commuters as well as if you’re just visiting friends and family.

Spotify Music

Spotify

In 2013 I helped conceptualize the functionality of Spotify Connect, their feature to seamlessly connect to a speaker or other devices and control your playback regardless of where the music is coming from. The logo I drew played on the Spotify logo itself. The idea was that when it connected, it would animate and fill in the circle. My work resulted in a conceptual UI video that helped drive the design work forward.

KDDI

KDDI

Back in 2010, during my time at Ocean Observations, we helped the second largest Japanese operator create their own suite of Android apps, including a home screen and launcher. I was responsible for the visual design direction, concept and documenting for implementation. The IS01 above was designed by Naoto Fukasawa, and it was a cross between a a smartphone and a laptop, and meant to resemble food packaging. The release of the IS03 phone was fronted by Lady Gaga and plastered all around Shibuya.

Some of the companies I’ve had the pleasure of working with:

Apple, KDDI, Spotify, Swedish Railways, SEB, Perigee, Sony, Electrolux, Nokia, Skype, Motorola, Ericsson, Huawei
