Resumé

About

My name is Arvid Bräne. I am born (1991) and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. I have a great passion for design, technology and pixel perfection. I am currently getting my master in Interaction Design at Umeå University. Feel free to check out the about page.

Experience

Oxys Design: Graphic Designer: 2010 – 2011

Starting late 2010 to late 2011 I was working, on and off, as a graphic designer. My tasks were everything from making mock-ups for websites, such as hemvarnet.se and dcsto.se, to presenting concepts for customers.

Syrligt: Creative Director: 2010 – 2012

Syrligt HB was a creative studio founded by me and a friend of mine. Our goal was to create everything from amazing iOS and Android applications to beautiful websites. I was the creative half of the company, but I also did most of the accounting.

Nobicon Nordic: Interaction Designer: 2013

During the second half of my second year I worked as a part time Interaction Designer over at the Umeå-based company Nobicon Nordic. During my time there I was in charge of the design and development of their new statistics system.

Screen Interaction: UI/UX Designer: 2014

I had the opportunity to work with some of Stockholms brightest. During my time att Screen Interaction I was involved in a number of projects in different fields; web design, product design, Windows UI/UX design, Android UI design and iOS UI/UX design. Feel free to read my blog-post about joining Screen Interaction.

Freelance: Visual Designer: 2010 – Present

After finishing high school, I wanted to give freelancing a shot. During my freelance years I have worked on various projects, such as the previous iOS “Res i STHLM“-application icon, graphic elements for MADdata.se and a website for the Swedish painter Johan Cavalli. More projects can be found on my Dribbble-page.

Education

Rudbeck Gymnasium: Computer Science & Mathematics: 2007 – 2010

Rudbeck Gymnasium was where I went to (the equivalent of) high-school. During my  three years there I quickly feel in love with Computer Science and graphics.

Umeå University: Master of Engineering & Interaction Design: 2011 – 2016

Since the start of my University studies I have been involved in a number of projects, like developing csnvaka.nudesign-work fotbollsresa.nudesign-work for Umeå University, etc. But I have also had time for a lot of other personal projects like redesigning both the Facebook and the Spotify desktop client, designing and building a quadrocopter, recreating real-life objects (like a GoPro-camera and a Paintball-marker) in Photoshop, etc.

City University of Hong Kong: Exchange Studies: 2014 – 2015

I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to spend one semester in Hong Kong. During my half-year-stay I took a broad variety of courses; everything from Digital Photojournalism and Video Editing to Rational Thinking and Creative Ideas. 

Misc. skills

Speak and write fluently in both Swedish and English. Greatly experienced in Adobe Photoshop, but have good knowledge across the line of the Adobe Creative Suite. I have more than basic knowledge when it comes to HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I’m accustomed to work in both Mac and Windows environments. I have also been working as a programming instructor at Umeå University during a period of four and a half weeks in 2012.
