Design in Motion in the vernacular of technology, communication and storytelling.

Christian moved from Sweden to London aged 19 to pursue a creative career, studying Art Foundation & Moving Image Design (1st Hons) at Ravensbourne University. Upon graduating, he accepted a Designer position with the London based design agency and graphic design gallery; Kemistry. He self-initiated and directed the short film Gastrotypographicalassemblage which was 'Vimeo Staff Picked'.

Upon leaving Kemistry he assisted director Anthony Dickenson to gain further experience in directing and post-production. Shortly thereafter, Designer/Director Steve Qua introduced Christian to Pentagram partner Naresh Ramchandani (co-founder of Karmarama). A fruitful working relationship was forged, realising celebrated projects such as Pentagram's 40th jubilee film, The Forty Story; the nationwide U.K campaign I Give An X, featured in the Guardian and a branded programme series called Pentagram Design Stories. Many other projects have been put into motion for brands such as the Royal Academy, Tate Modern, London Design Festival at the V&A, Alexander McQueen, Design Museum, Aldo, WWF etc.

The tight-knit, collaborative spirit at Pentagram combined with Christian's keen eye for detail and dynamic skill-set resulted in him working with all the different Pentagram London partners and respective teams – spanning from graphic and industrial designers to architects, on various projects, campaigns, motion identities and pitches.

Alongside the stints at Pentagram London, Christian has also worked with innovative agencies such as R/GA on projects for Microsoft and Beats (now owned by Apple) – as well as directed a set of demo films for Samsung at Nexus Interactive. In 2015 he worked with the talented team at Art & Graft to realise a branded block promotion for BBC's India Season.
