Fotbollsresor.nu is a website where users can not only compare ticket prices for football events, for example a match between Sweden and Denmark, but also choose to book a matching air ticket. Since there are hundreds of games every day worldwide, the website needs to be able to filter these events in different ways.
I had the opportunity to re-design their whole website experience with a deep focus on coming up with a new, fresh, and responsive look and feel. I came up with a couple of different mock-ups for the site, but also added some components to their already exciting graphic profile.

After growing tired of the iTunes-looking thing Spotify hade going on with their Mac application, me and a few classmates (Albin, Victor, Simon etc.) of mine decided to host a redesign contest where we in the end would send in our designs for Spotify to pick a winner. BTW, I listen to music.
The old design (0.9.X) was too similar to iTunes; huge lists with a focus on fitting as much content into the window as possible. Most often I, the user, find what I’m looking for (if I’ve e.g. searched for a song) in the 10 results. I am also normally a big fan of dark UI’s, but I believe this one is too dark, and frankly, quite boring.
The redesign is responsive (in my opinion a native app has to be as responsive as a webpage), it keeps some kind of cross platform consistency (since the navigation is based on their web player), it introduces some new features (buffer indicators etc.).

From time to time I feel like improving my basic photoshop knowledge, one of the ways I do that is by looking at an photo and trying to replicate it. Sometimes I do it with a twist (“only vectors” or “only bitmaps”) but most often it is just me trying to figure out lighting, textures, perspectives, etc. Here are a few objects I’ve created:
During a short period of time I was “obsessed” with GoPro cameras (until I finally bought one) and when GoPro released their third generation of cameras, the Hero 3 (reference image), I decided it was time to make one in Photoshop. 30 hours and 450+ layers later – Voilá!
Tippman 98C Paintball Marker
I took up Paintball in 2012, and boy, did I like it! I started with a simple marker, a Tippman 98C (reference image), and quickly fell in love with it. As a “token of appreciation” I decided on to re-create it in Photoshop. After about 20 hours I ended up with a PSD, around 600+ layers, and a lot wider knowledge about lighting and textures.
I was asked to come up with a logotype for the event “Idag & Inatt”, described here, and quickly decided on trying to create a Cassette Tape (reference image), using only vectors. The finished image was over 420 layers, feel free to download the PSD-file here.

During the start of my second year at Umeå University I started designing the user interface for a stand-alone Facebook Mac application. It was one of those projects I had going on for quite some time; from September to November.
Much thought was put into making the user feel familiar, embracing the look and feel of the Facebook ecosystem. The user should at the same time feel that this was a genuine native application and not a simple web port. The design was very appreciated on Dribbble and on Twitter; Facebook themselves also contacted me about it.
