About

Hi there, I’m Alexander! I’m a UX Designer with vast experience in design systems, accessibility and frontend development. I’m based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Since 2011 I’ve been working with clients such as occupational healthcare provider Feelgood, public TV broadcaster Sveriges Television, fintech giant Klarna, medtech company KIBI, the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority and veteran rock band Backyard Babies.

When not designing or going to concerts I go on the occasional solo adventure. Here in Vancouver, Canada in 2019.

I’m currently putting my skills to test at inUse in Stockholm. Contact me at alexander.skogberg@gmail.com.

Over the past ten years I’ve picked up experience about and fine-tuned essential designer skills in design systems, accessibility, usability testing, low-fidelity and high-fidelity prototyping, interaction design, user research, working mobile first, copywriting and last but not least graphic design.

I’ve primarily worked in multi-disciplinary teams for longer projects or together with other designers for shorter projects. Working together with others is where I thrive and do my best work.

Portfolio and CV

Information about my skills and experience is found in my CV. Case studies of the work I’m most proud of are available in my portfolio. For my thoughts and takes on design, have a look at my blog.

Speaking

I love to share my experience with the design community. Since 2012 I’ve been giving talks on topics such as accessibility, prototyping and working mobile first. Helping colleagues, team members and other designers become better at their craft is something I enjoy immensely and forces me to continuously improve my design skills.

Education

In 2010 I graduated with a master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. For the final two years I studied Human-Computer Interaction with students from all over the world.

Six true facts about me

  1. I’m a huge fan of the Peanuts comic strip and have Snoopy tattoo.
  2. I have 22 cousins on my dad’s side of the family (not a cult thing).
  3. I’m a die-hard music fan and have been to over 270 concerts.

  4. I’ve gotten three degrees in classic Spanish guitar playing.
  5. I’ve high-fived Metallica lead singer James Hetfield.
  6. I have a porcelain front tooth due to a childhood accident.
