Per Sandström

Digital designer, developer, web enthusiast, maker, dad…

Stockholm, Sweden

Nice to meet you!

Since 1999 I’ve been designing, developing and leading web projects both for a living and for fun. I have a chronic thirst for knowledge and approach things through thinking, challenging and problem solving. I love building things and thrive in creative and prestigeless environments where creating value is what really matters.

Current work situation:

Founder & Head of Production at Kollegorna

A digital agency born in 2010 building products and services.


Services

  • Concepts
  • Strategy
  • UX and UI design
  • Development
  • Brand Identities

Tech stack

Clients

Privately held and listed companies, startups, organisations, NGOs and government authorities. Our mothership is in Stockholm, but as we’re a distributed agency we’re spread from Santo Domingo in the west to Plovdiv in the east.

Own ventures

As if building things for clients wasn’t enough we also do own projects. The most prominent of those are…

Releasefest
A community driven website where we celebrate swedish digital products and services. Somewhat like ProductHunt but with just swedish sites, services, apps, campaigns and more.

The Kong Initiative
Getting your hands on extra wide snowboards has always been hard for europeans. We aim to change that by specializing in only the widest boards on the market. We ship to the entire EU as well as Norway and Switzerland.

GPX.io
Show off your activity in a simple way on a map. You don’t print and frame all your photos – but you do with those that are special. GPX.io helps you frame your most significant activities.

Engagements, associations & affliations


Various things I contribute to, either by giving them time and/or money.

Committments

Computers and other electronics


My primary computer is a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) with a 3 GHz Intel Core i7 and 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory. Prior to that I had a Macbook Air, but unfortunately killed it with a latte. To make things I use Sublime Text, Sketch, Pixelmator, Photoshop and iA Writer. To be able to follow the progress of Microsoft I run Windows 10 through Parallels Desktop.


I keep my old Macbook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2011) as a machine to perform various experiments on.


A plethora of Raspberry Pis of different models that I use for video recording, gaming, watching, listening to music and misc hardware projects.


An iPhone SE. I prefer a small smartphone. My hands aren’t fit to operate heavier machinery.


An Apple Watch Series 2 42 mm.


A 5th generation iPad.


At the office I use an 27” Apple Thunderbolt Display and at home a 32” Philips BDM3270QP/00.


Keyboard and mouse: Logitech K780 and Logitech MX Master. The same setup both at office and at home.


Other gadgets: Panasonic Lumix GX1, GoPro Hero4 Session, Apple TV 3rd gen and a Xbox One.
