I see myself as a social designer—it might sound pretentious or vaguely generic, but it's important. I care about the people around me. I believe in a non-prestigeous work process. I want to listen and learn things. And I'm a storyteller; I like to engage, to teach others, and to convey insights and values.

A particular strength is that I work with both design and copywriting, and have long experience in project management and editorial work for leading publishing houses in Sweden. I bring this into all projects and it creates both structure and ease for everyone involved. I have a firm belief in precision, clarity and relevance for communications, throughout all stages of production.
