About Andreas Hellqvist

05/15/2015

I’m a multi-discipline digital Art Director and graphic designer living in Stockholm, Sweden. My obsession with digital art started in my teen years during the 90s, mainly as a general interest of computers and their potential to create new experiences. I discovered that I had a talent for design and I could spend hours in Photoshop working on web pages, posters and 3D renderings.

I really see myself as a digital native, everything comes quite natural to me and that’s why I had no problem converting from web to mobile and on to responsive design for the modern environment. I love the challenges of today where you have to look beyond the hardware and focus on the users. The most important aspect of design for me, is to create a lean user experience and an extraordinary graphical finish.

My entire work process is centered around the mix of the end user needs and the customer perspective. In my opinion the central idea of the concept is crucial to the core of every successful project and therefore something that should be shared and developed by the entire innovation team.
