In the time span of about a decade, I've spent a fairly great amount of hope, will and effort to make great things happen. The reason — to open people's eyes to stuff that deserves it.
Through this simple will I've landed a bunch of things on planet earth. The common denominator has been an interest in learning more.
Following as below: web-presence — & recent work, made in collaboration with clever friends and co-workers.
An attempt to open a dialogue with one of the most isolated countries in the world. North Korea.
Starting with a blank slate and ending with friends behind the border. Three years later we made it —the first ever jeans from North Korea. A consumer product which symbolic value has played a special role in many former east block countries.
Noko Jeans was a three year long journey of joy, fear, exhaustion and endless thoughts circulating around the last frontier of the cold war.
The project is now officially put in hibernation mode, but my interest and engagement with North Korea and surrounding East Asia remains strong.
Made together with Jacob Åström, Jakob Ohlsson and a lot of totally amazing people.
Loopc.am is a new way for people to express themselves and share moments in short GIF-based video clips called loops. Loopcam has had a huge user boom in recent months and is supported by some of Europe’s most influential tech leaders.
The animated GIF is an image format more than 20 years old, and it's still loved by people all over the internet. We created a tool for people to animate loops in a new and exciting way.
The result: Loopcam. A super simple tool that captures a series of frames through an iPhone or iPad camera stop-motion style, which is seamlessly and quickly merged into an animation to share. A perfect blend between still photographs and video.

When entering the site you'll automatically get a queue number. When it's your turn, you get to talk to someone at the Order Desk — live. And after answering a few questions, you got one selected song — chosen for your personality type — for free.
Two people were working in the order desk for several weeks. The interest was huge and The Human Order desk became very popular among the people on 4chan.org — the world's biggest & most hectic forum. The forum people loved the order desk, they made their own fan posters and waited for hours in the queue.
The Human Order Desk became internet culture, or a Meme, as they say.
My involvement was in the form of an art director, and the site was made with the amazing people at Dist, during the time I worked there.
