What people have to say about Daniel


“Daniel is a top-shelf product designer with world-class visual design skills. I’ve first worked with Daniel at Doberman in Stockholm and later, as head of design at Artsy in New York, I asked for his help with designing the first version of our iPhone app.

Daniel has a tremendous command of creating thoughtful and beautiful digital experiences. Beyond being very strong on the design system and functional side of things, Daniel can also create daring, differentiated, and distinct solutions like few other digital designers out there.”

Robert Lenne
Head of Product & Design
Artsy



“It doesn't get any better than this. Beneath the surface of this humble man hides one of the sharpest Designers out there. For real. I tutored Daniel at Hyper Island about a decade ago and I saw what everyone else already knew he was - a superstar.

Later, I was lucky to have him beside me at Doberman for almost seven years, working as part of our design team. Daniel has a sixth sense when it comes to crafting user experiences that truly differ. His work is sharp, genuine and sparkling. And once you've worked with him you will always miss him. I do.”

Henrik Karlsson
Creative Director
Doberman



“Daniel is an outstanding Product Designer whom I've had the pleasure of working with on numerous projects over the past 12 years. And since 2016, we've been working side by side at Qapital.

At Qapital, Daniel has been an instrumental part of building Qapital into what it is today. His contributions range from designing the very first prototypes to designing the full-scale mobile banking app Qapital is today with checking, savings, and investment accounts.

Daniel is a super nice guy who you'll love having on your team. But what makes him exceptionally great as a Product Designer is that he always pushes and finds truly simple solutions to complex problems while making them beautiful as only a few can.

With that said, I hope to continue working with Daniel for the years to come.”

Henrik Wrangel
Head of Product Experience
Qapital
