Designer & Trend Analyst

My consultancy has two legs. One at the drawing table with a big interest in the forest industry, paper folding, glass mills, craftsmanship, sustainability and the art of design; the other, in making journeys around the world, analysing global trends – not just the latest expressions and materials, but also people’s behaviours and emerging needs in different demographies. My studio is based in central Lund, Sweden. With an edge in the food & packaging industry, my client list includes Tetra Pak, Orkla Foods, Husqvarna, Pampas Deli, Systrarna Khanna, Monument Labs, Stora Enso, Axfood and Spritfabriken.

Professional experience

With 13 years’ experience in human-centered design, I have performed ethnographic studies, trend speeches, workshops and design assignments for brand owners in Spain, US, Turkey, Italy, Sweden, UK, China, Korea, Philippines, Denmark, Portugal, Germany, France, Italy, Iran, Canada and Vietnam.

Ambalaj

Ambalaj is a packaging design blog which I founded in 2008. The mission since then has been to showcase carefully selected cases from all over the world; material innovation, structural packaging, graphic design as well as beautiful brand stories. The blog has grown into one of the world’s most influential sites for packaging design inspiration; engaging designers and brand owners globally.
