With 30+ years working as an Art Director for advertising- and design agencies in Sweden and the UK, there are not many areas of communication I haven’t touched at some point. This means I have a lot of experience under my belt. And I constantly look for new ones to add to my collection of skills.
I was always very organized and have had the privilege of working on large and complex productions with many “moving parts”.
In 2009 I took the plunge to set out as my own manager. The reality meant a large chunk of non-creative work, like budgeting, managing projects and learning new skills.
So, the step into the role of a creative Project Manager was actually fairly logical. In my current role at Chalmers University of Technology I keep up to speed with creative trends and often act as a sounding board and coach my colleagues in matters of visual communication and creative strategy.
Adding to this I work as the link between the University and suppliers of advertising, media, film, photography, animation and illustration.
