I make humans fall in love with software.
I guess you could say I'm an explorer, I love to discover things, and during my life I have done my fair share of exploring.
Quick facts about me, I used to be a graffiti artist, semi-pro snowboarder, tattoo apprentice, avid pinball player and metal head (I still am).
Passionate about learning new things, and share my knowledge with others. Always open to new ideas and concepts that challenge my own.
I'm a sucker for books, real books not e-books although e-books have many benefits they lack the tangible experience of paper.
I worked with design and web development since the days when setting up a GeoCities "homepage" was the coolest thing you could do (besides placing a high score on every pinball machine in the arcade).
I'm aside from daily tasks revolving UI/UX I'm also managing the local education and traning sessions for UI/UX at Sogeti Sweden's Umeå office. I have worked on a number of UX related tasks at Sogeti and also had the opportunity to do Acceptance testing for large scale projects.
Aside from UX I also participated in the Hackathon arranged together with Husqvarna and Sogeti Sweden. My team came in second place for our Augmented reality garden gnome that aids in keeping the garden alive and well.
I'm was in charge of designing the new mobile app, and website to create a seamless user experience and strengthen brand recognition.
While also being heavily involved with updating the current branding & marketing material.
Managed a team of designers spread across greater China. My role also included the re-branding of some of the Realmax products, creating a consistent set of brand identity treatment guides.
I'm pleased to say that after a year of hard work, we received the 2015 best mobile application award.
In charge of the creative process I worked closely together with our clients, managing projects from start to finished product.
Ensuring that projects were delivered on time and adhering to the creative direction.
Producing concept artwork, wire frames and prototypes for client projects.
Creative design and concept design making sure that the brand identities were aligned across all media.
Despite being hired as a Sr. web designer my work mostly revolved around creating Branding.
My main focus was creative, developing logotypes, brand Identities, CI / VI and treatment guides.
"Johan has a great eye for what works and what doesn't, and the patience to get it done long term. We worked together on the Realmax software platform and myriad investor presentations from 2015 to 2016. In the face of challenging timelines and limited resources, Johan and his team delivered creative work time and time again. He keeps his signature cool even under extreme pressure"
Co-Founder, Strategic Advisor Realmax
"Johan made the brand new design of the Realcast, our core product. Then it won the Asia Smartphone Apps Contest. Johan has the design gift of technology and he knows what the future user really needs. With the sight of the future tech, he always amazed me with the detail theory of what we are doing! I always wonder he is born to be a engineer and talented designer!"
Co-Funder and SVP Software Product Realmax
"Johan worked with me and for me for several months, while he was at RealMax in Hong Kong and Shanghai. I found him to be honest, pleasant to work with and a very talented and creative graphic/UX designer. He differs from most designers in his substantial knowledge of related technology. He can program, and work with 3D modelling software, so has an strong and understanding connection with the development teams. "
President 8LAS Inc
"Johan is undoubtedly one of the most creative, reliable, and talented web/ graphic designers in Hong Kong and China, and I would strongly recommend his services."
