From the shaping of an idea, to building out UI mockups & prototypes, creating components, assets & app icons.
Work for a client for a new app. In the end, the icon was not used because the company changed direction (including its name!). Had we continued with this icon, I would have worked to refined the MV work-mark more. Cool side effect of the word-mark; highlighting the text in the mac OS OCR recognition correctly recognizes it as 'MV'.
Meticulously crafted app icon template for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and iMessage apps for use with Sketch. Change one Smart Object and see your icon in all needed sizes. Each shown in its context.
To feed the world, we need to change the way we eat. Plantry makes that a pleasurable experience by helping you plan, shop and cook. Plantry is made by Filibaba, a company I co-founded. In addition to Plantry, we have a platform where we create apps for individual cookbook authors.
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.
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.
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 youre just visiting friends and family.
Just a really great calculator which I helped design and give really satisfying button presses, utilizing animated tap states and haptic feedback.
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.
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.
