It made my day when Apple featured my new set of Monster Microbe stickers in the AppStore! And it made me think about how designing for our digital spaces has changed in the mobile era.
When I got my first computer I wondered if they really had to look so boring and sterile? Wasn't there a way to make them more personal, a way to make your files and folders more beautiful and easy to find, so you would work with ease and flow throughout your day? So I started making icons that have a colourful and organic vibe to them.
I love creating things directly for people, or "users" to speak the digital lingo. Maybe it's no wonder, because I'm a Swedish designer, strongly influenced and inspired by my heritage. Scandinavian design is characterised by beautiful, simple, clean, organic designs, inspired by nature and the northern climate. And making design accessible and available to everyone, so that design can infuse your daily life and bring you pleasure as you go about your days.
Designing for Our Digital Living Room
We live our lives more and more online, in our digital living rooms. And I feel it's increasingly important to design for the digital environment that we spend so much time in. It's the place where we communicate, work, learn, and enjoy entertainment. We want it to be an easy, beautiful and functional experience.
