I have a background as a graphic artist, illustrator and journalist at the newspaper Hufvudstadsbladet. I was working for the newspaper for about 20 years. I have also worked freelance for various clients, including Sanoma Magazines and Erikoislehdet.
For two years, 2012–2014 I was teaching visual arts at high school and at Inveon, a vocational school where I taught students in graphic design. I am a formally qualified visual arts teacher too.
At the moment I'm working part time for my former employer Hufvudstadsbladet. This temporary post will end in the beginning of september. So I'm looking for freelance jobs.
Some of these graphics have been published i Hufvudstadsbladet and other publikations, some of them are unpublished.
My speciality is information graphics. At the moment I'm very keen on making motion graphics, as more and more media companies are investing on the Web. And I think it's great fun.
And last, but not least, I play jazz and blues on electric bass and double bass in several bands on a semi-professional base. My bands are:
Mosabacka Big Band, jazz
Hi-Five Quintet, blues, soul, jazz
Mexico Express, blues, americana
Broadway, jazz
Old School Blues Band, blues
Melodiset, covers, dans music
Please, get in touch if you need my services.
