My name is Anders,
I’m a UI & UX designer.

I promote and design
positive interfaces 

Like any other graphics designer, I used Photoshop as my digital playground in my early days. After studying graphics design & web development at the university I started to work professionally as a web designer and front-end developer. A hundred websites and billions of pixels later I figure out that the design part attracts me more than writing code, so I change direction and aim at becoming a full-stack UI designer.

Today I’m a UX designer working at  Opera as part of the mobile team where I’ve been since 2014. Every day I try to make positive user interfaces that are fun and easy to use. Working at Opera gives me the opportunity to design products used by hundreds of millions of users around the world in their everyday life. Whether it’s about online shopping, being up-to-date on news or sending money to your friends I get to work with some of the best in their business to take on these challenges.

I’m all ears for new projects, even if it’s not revolutionizing the world. Let’s schedule a quick call or send me a message and we’ll see where it leads.

Rating slider

One of the suggestions of how the user could give feedback for Opera Mini for Android. One of the biggest problems of requesting feedback and rating is the lack of interest from the user's perspective. The idea here is to make the visualization appealing enough to make the user interact with it.

Android Call Dial

An early concept for Android focusing on improving the call dial interface. Too many relevant actions were hidden and the structure was too clumsy.

Random logotype

Practicing in making 3D vector objects in Photoshop.

ESN Logotype Contest

This is my entry for a design contest ESN held to celebrate their 25 years anniversary. The task was to create a new vector logotype that contains the ESN identity colors and the numbers 25.

Photoshop

Absolut Vodka Concept

"Absolut Vodka - Taste of the ocean" is a project I worked on for fun. I wanted to practise photo manipulation in a more serious way. I don't think this would be a hit though as I'm not a fan of the taste of salty water and fishes...

Masquerade website UI

A design for a made-up web agency.

PUBG Menu Concept

The UX and UI in PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS has so many flaws. Every time I open the game I see more and more issues that could be improved and solved without any major fixes. I decided to freshen up the UI for the main menu a bit in this quick concept.

Caliber Website Design

The previous design for the Caliber website. I switched from having a dark themed identity to something more positive, bright and clean. It is outdated now but still accessible through the link below.

Isotope

Together with a British developer (Jack Underwood) we created a periodic table app for Android based on a concept I did. After months of design, development and user interviews we released it and our app Isotope became real. We got featured on many big Android online communities, BBC’s science magazine, had an exclusive interview with UpLabs (founders of Envato) and Jack even got a job offer from this. Today we have over 150,000 installs and an average rating of 4.6.

Mahjong Invitational 2016

Made this banner for a riichi mahjong tournament held at the countryside of Linköping. The event was arranged by the biggest mahjong club in Linköping. The printed version is about 2 square meters.

Audio UI Plugin

I can go on with details and shadings forever but I have to stop somewhere. This is the "final" version of my imaginary audio UI. In the attachment you can find a brushed steel version of the interface as well, couldn't decide which one I prefer the most 🙂

Photoshop

Turbo Surfers

Logotype printed on Opera branded sport jerseys. The mobile browsers of Opera uses a data savings technology we call "Turbo" which speeds up page loads while also saving a lot of data. That's why we become the "turbo surfers".

Photoshop

Animated Character

I've always been inspired by Pixar, Blue Sky or any other big animation studio's character style and wanted to try something on my own. I'm not experienced in 3D software so I made this entirely in Photoshop.

Photoshop

User Hints

Concept for more positive and less annoying user hints that helps the user understand and use our product in a better way.

2D Game Scene

Got inspired by "Ori and the Blind Forest" and Mikael Gustafsson to do some 2D game level design, not really close to their level though.

After EffectsPhotoshop

Car Wheels UI

Trying out some general UI stuff in After Effects and how to use displacement maps. So the image used is a 2D photo from www.wheelsandmore.de that I make 3D by displacing bitmaps (bringing objects closer). Guess I got inspired by video games when making this.

Examples of what I do

User experience & interaction design

My main area is to work with enhancing the user experience and provide good user-friendly interfaces that make sense to whoever is using it. I strive to design visually appealing interfaces that make the user smile. That in combination with backing up design decisions with research and statistics gives the best possible retention and result from a design perspective.

Marketing

Without your product or identity being recognized by others, it’s hard to reach the desired user base and target audience. I help you set up campaigns and provide material to use for blog posts, promotion videos, printed matters and much more. Whether it’s preparations for an expo or advertising in various places we can find the solution together.

Motion design

To decorate interfaces with animations and vividness is becoming more common and it’s something I strongly promote if time and resources are on your side. By using Adobe After Effects and various tools I create animations that can easily be imported by developers without spending hours and hours of polishing tiny details.
