Hey I'm Max!

Colorful designs and creative animations get my attention, but innovative ideas truly seize it.

Being involved in the design process of preparing the hypothesis and goals of a test to creating designs and putting different sorts of prototypes together is something I'm passionate about. I've been described as a person who is a great team player and who likes to have things organized. Besides this, I believe humor is very important because it can create a feeling of togetherness.

Work

Junior UX Designer

Mar 2020 - Present

I'm working as a Junior UX Designer at King with the mobile game Candy Crush Soda. Here I do everything from sketching out a flow for a specific feature to creating prototypes and preparing the test materials needed. I enjoy working in an environment with quick iterations and together with highly skilled colleagues.

UX Design Intern

Sep 2019 - Feb 2020

I'm working as a UX Design Intern at King with the mobile game Candy Crush Soda. Here I do everything from sketching out a flow for a specific feature to creating a low-fi prototype and preparing the test materials needed. I enjoy working in an environment with quick iterations and together with highly skilled colleagues.

Being chosen after a tough hiring process is something I'm grateful for every day. Working at King really is a unique opportunity for me to both learn and further develop my skills. 

Education

Halmstad University

Bachelor's degree in Informatics

2016 - 2019

I studied Digital Design and Innovation for three years at Halmstad University and got my bachelor's degree in Informatics. Some examples of completed courses: Sustainable Design, Service Design, Interactive Prototypes and also Scientific Methods and Research Ethics. I learned the foundation of UX design and how to go from problem to solution while listening to the user's goals and needs. 

Trimester abroad

Spring 2018

Edinburgh Napier University

I studied Digital Media and Interaction Design during a semester abroad at Edinburgh Napier University as part of my program back in Sweden. I completed challenging courses: 3D Animation, Playful Interaction as well as Design Thinking and Doing. It was a fantastic experience that helped me grow as a person and explore an amazing nature in Scotland.

Experiences

Co-founder of Anyhap AB

Spring 2016

Our company was part of the 2016 Spring Batch at THINK Accelerate Program that lasted for 12-weeks. During that time I designed and developed but also pitched the app we had built.  This was an experience that I learned a lot about how to handle a business and working under pressure but I also learned a lot from the other companies. 

THINK Accelerate Program

Au Pair in USA

2014 - 2015

Took care of three fantastic children and improved my English while I also traveled most of the USA. It was important for me to find a family that were looking from someone to share their home with rather than having an employee. I really got that from my host-family and couldn't be happier about my choice. I have visited them a couple of times since then and seeing them is so much fun and it really brings back memories.
