Henrik's story

Family & friends

Henrik is raised in a wonderful and creative family, surrounded by lovable friends. They mean literally everything to him! He grew up on the countryside in southern Sweden, currently located in a small town called Falkenberg. 

Work

Henrik is a front-end developer and multi-disciplinary designer. Web and graphic design led him to front-end development where he has specialised. He's passionate about architecture, structure and accessibility and neat looking websites.

Sports

Sports have always been a big part of Henrik's life. He has tried varies kind, but it's football and golf that figure most for him.

What Henrik does

Henrik tends to thrive best at the intersection of design and development - being able to influence visual expressions and realising those using code. Henrik cares deeply about his work, always aiming high, sometimes getting there. He doesn’t walk away until he is satisfied – unless he is forced to.

Shipping code

Creative development

Once he shipped a sailing boat but most often he ships code. Henrik is confident with HTML and CSS. Lately he's learned more JavaScript and explores the JavaScript ecosystem seriously, using React and Gatsby to build static sites, like his own portfolio. Henrik aims to create scalable, fast solutions that are easily maintained in the future.

Accessibility

One of the things Henrik missed the most in his education was web accessibility, something he has had to learn the hard way, and now enjoys. Henrik has implemented accessibility features in projects with strict legal requirements. He has discovered that accessibility, once you learn and understand it, is actually fun!

Design

Web- and graphic design

Henrik started out designing for his childhood football club's website. That planted a seed, as it later inspired him to educate himself in web and graphic design. Henrik looks for clarity and cleanliness in everything he produces. His sources of inspiration come mainly from minimal and clean Scandinavian design, though he tries to be careful not to make things feel bland.

UI/UX design

Henrik is especially fond of designing websites and products. Although he's mainly been a developer in recent years, this is still something he wishes to hold on to and do more of in the future. He is aiming to create functional, engaging interfaces that are easy to interact with.

Experience

Henrik has six years of professional experience, five years of education and a lot of years of dedication behind him. Currently Henrik works at a web agency called Kodamera (Code more) in Gothenburg, running his own business in parallel in his spare time.
