Jacob Lindborg…

“Why should I hire you?”, you curiously ask. I’m your technical unicorn, a unique skill set, taking your digital goals to the next level. I’m a tech savvy hybrid between strategy, storytelling & innovation, without compromises…

I define myself as a design driven evangelist; an entrepreneur & author of Progressive Design. I envision, theorize and develop system architecture and strategic business platforms, 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. My design ideology is rooted in business insights, technology exploration, pattern analysis and high energy.

I lead and inspire tech savvy 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 more 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 an agile process.
