rubrik_about

“Over the years, we at Granit have worked with Håkan on a number of different projects, both print and digital. We love his broad competence, his surety of design and his skills with conceptualization. He’s open, humble and provides an important external viewpoint for us.”

Eva-Lena Degerhäll
Marketing Director, Granit

“Håkan served as our in-house agency. We could throw anything at him, from serving as a project manager to developing concepts for new campaigns and then basically carrying them out himself. Håkan also took on the extensive work of creating a new graphic profile for our company, with everything that involves. He’s a much-missed colleague.”

Petra Hansson
Marketing Manager, Karnov Group

“Our cooperation with Håkan has always gone extremely smoothly and been fun for us. He understands well his role when it comes to quick turnarounds, and he really knows the most effective, creative and practical ways we should be working.”

Fredrik Manuel Persson
Production Manager, Jung Relations

Håkan Larsson — (Interactive) Art Director

Interaction is not about computers, it´s about people. My passion is to engage people through stories and I believe that by refined visuals and good storytelling you can connect with people´s emotions. And that is what differs good communication from bad.

I have more than 10 years of experience from print and digital design as a freelancing graphic designer and art director.
