Creative Design

It is not always in your own industry that you find the solutions but sometimes it hangs in front of your own nose.

User Friendly

If your users can’t use what you are building, it does not matter how good, expensive or stable it is.

Web Development

It’s cheaper to build Web and app design accessible to everyone, right from the start. Rebuilding is expensive.

Get Inspired

Everyday life inspires me. Art, culture, meetings, people, jobs, building a house and not least food, interest me.

Be Creative

First in the office, a blank whiteboard, some nice music and freshly brewed coffee. It triggers me : )

“Sebastian was a crucial person in the development of our Digitalist Vancouver studio. He is always prompt to embrace a new challenge with a handful of significant skills. He can genuinely translate business goals into the language of users. His passion for human-centric design is an inspiring source to bridge multidisciplinary perspectives into a vision that can engage users with products and services. He can focus on details as well as able to see a holistic picture, something rare in individuals. He is adorable and a great team player. I would certainly recommend his work.”

UX Designer

Unionen through Digitalist

“Sebastian and I worked together on a very important project. The scope was to develop new digital services in order to raise customer satisfaction. The product we were working on is information heavy and the users did not have much time to use it – so we had a challenge to provide the users with what they needed quickly. Throughout the project Sebastian was an excellent advocate for the users – showing great empathy for their needs, while still keeping the business value at top of mind. Sebastian’s designs were both easy to understand for the users, as well as inspiring, creating energy in a product that could easily be discouraging.   Another key to the project’s success was that Sebastian participated in weekly stand-ups, providing insights and answers that allowed us to progress with speed and in the right direction. Sebastian is a great diplomat, with excellent ability to listen to many different people and needs, analyse the input, and deliver solutions that meet all needs. Without the help of Sebastian, the product would not be as successful as it now is.  I would highly recommend anyone to work with Sebastian!”

Clients really like my work

First and foremost, Sebastian is fantastic to work with and I am glad to have gotten the opportunity to work closely with him. He brings a professional attitude and calm force to the table that the team can rally around to move design forward. The experience he brought to the project was invaluable, not to mention the mentorship he provided.

I do enjoy working with Sebastian. He is my mentor, friend, and a buddy who can shares sparks in design, food, art, and classical music. He has a holistic design strategy mindset while being sensitive to details. Sebastian believes the philosophy of reducing cognitive overload and always desires to help end users finish the task delightfully.
His constructive feedback and solid suggestions supported me a lot. Sebastian is open-minded, creative and trustful. As a senior designer, Sebastian respects the younger designer’s idea and critiques the design based on facts and data. He continually brings the tangible, intangible and aspirational values to the team with his design talents.

HSR/UX Designer at Digitalist Sweden

2017–2019
In order to simplify the construction of a brand new site over a long period of time, I have built a strategy and a model where we build the entire site with modules. These are general to fit all types of their needs. When new ones come, we add more modules. This makes it easy for the customer to quickly build up and or rebuild parts of the site to adapt to intended flows.

Solution: Strategically create a model with a supportive technical platform in which our modules live.

Purpose: Simplify an existing site with far too much data. Make it manageable for customers to work with the site as a daily tool without daily contact with developers.

ATG

In a constant effort to simplify, improve and develop a service, a large part of the purchase flow is.

Purpose: Simplify and speed up the journey to added game.
