When I was young I had this dream about becoming a pro skateboarder. I was the first to be at the skate park every day and the last to leave. I would spend every day pushing myself to become better and better. Sadly, I didn’t manage to become a pro skateboarder, but what I did learn from skateboarding is the consistent work it takes to be good at something – knowledge I apply to the professional work I do now.
Almost ten years ago I discovered another activity I am passionate about – web design. At the time I began I didn’t know any developers so I had to code up everything I was designing. I suppose I thought coding was expected from a web designer. Since then I have launched hundreds of projects across the Internet for both clients as well as personal projects.
After years in the agency world, and working in a variety of roles and with varied projects, I’ve learned a lot about the industry. I’ve learned what it takes to create outstanding work, coordinate with other people in teams, and the importance of delivering accurate work that meets the deadline every time.
Given the variety of experience I have in my background, where I’ve touched almost everything that a typical digital agency do, I felt it was perfect timing for me to begin my work as a freelancer. So begins the start of a new and thrilling chapter in my life.
As a freelancer I’m now working with dozens of happy clients from my office in central Gothenburg that I share with a bunch of other talented creatives.
