June 5th, 2013 Labels: North Kingdom Ten years ago I founded a small design & communication agency in the north of Sweden with one of my best friends; Roger Stighäll. We took the name North Kingdom, and the basic idea from the beginning was to become an international, well known, interactive design agency. Our intention was to keep the agency quite small, working with the great network of digital folks we found in our hometown. Skellefteå is a very small town, but very very talented. Looking back, we have succeeded with our goal. Thanks everyone that has contributed in one way or the other to make this such a fantastic journey!

Warm and Cool – Color Psychology in Web Design Whether we like it or not, it is impossible to deny the fact that colors are able to arouse different emotions. We can’t control this process, it happens on the level of subconscious. There is a theory that the connection of colors and emotions is laid at the gene level.

Creators - Dedicated to inspiring designers, inventors & the creative spirit in all of us. August 22, 2013 Artist’s Work Paints a Beautiful Picture Animations One design is enough « “If you go see a doctor with a headache, he gives you an aspirin” Paul Rand, 1991 UPS logo Just like a doctor, a designer only needs to give the client ONE SOLUTION to a problem.

Crash Course: Design for Startups I recently stumbled across screenshots of old websites of mine and was hurled into a state of reminiscent shock. I knew they were bad, but wow they were outstandingly horrible (redeemed only by their microformats support! I kid, I kid).

Only in the last year have I begun feeling slightly more confident about my design quality and process.
