I define myself as a design evangelist; a Corporate Entrepreneur & Author of Progressive Design. I envision, theorize and develop customer-centric concepts, quantifiable methodologies and strategic business models, soaked in storytelling and innovative technology.
Design is not a matter of taste, it’s a business. Design is not a result, it’s a process. Design is not a product, it’s an experience. I’m the author of progressive design theory and the book series that covers the principles at lindborg.io/books/.
My design ideology is rooted in business insights, technology exploration, customer analysis and cultivating leadership.
I design theories, services, concepts and insightful softwaresolutions. I lead and inspire product designs, fuelling them with desires from poetry, engineering, architecture and artistry. I cultivate my teams to collaborate and be candid with each other, thus achieving together. I fill my plate each day with the wonders and far edges of this creative and inventive world, incorporating business and emotional logic, throughout the process.

Communication & User Experience (UX)
It’s all about creating an intuitive and solid foundation for your design process. Going through concept-, information-, interaction- and function-design is just the beginning of my work. Analysing the users behaviour and building a solid media strategy is the building blocks for all my designs. Intuitive, user friendly and functional designs, with beautiful pixels and aesthetics is my goal.
My designs are based on my extensive programming knowledge, creating dynamic and intuitive designs that will adapt to any media and user experience. Bringing strategic design and programming skills together, creates a rich and balanced product between artwork and functionality, that will be useable on any canvas, tablet, mobile phone or desktop platform.
