This deck provided by Business Insider provides some highly interesting insights into where we stand with mobile and what the future looks like. It’s 50 slides, but it’s very to-the-point and provides some amazing insights.
An idea is not a design,
but it is an invitation to a journey.
A design is not a prototype,
but it is a plan for moving forward.
A prototype is not a program,
but it is a test for your assumptions.
A program is not a product,
but it is a milestone towards progress.
A product is not a business,
but it is the first fruit of an idea.
A business is not profits,
but it is a team behind your back.
Profits is not an exit,
but it is validation of your work.
And an exit is not happiness,
but happiness is not a destination.
Happiness is a journey.

As summer is coming to it’s end, we are faced with a new season and I’m meeting more agencies for possible assignments. If you are in need of a freelancing Creative Director / Art Director, get in touch. Here’s what I think gives me an edge in comparison to competitors.
1. Advertising & Digital background
I have solid experience from the digital world and have been awarded with Cresta Award and Guldägget. I also have experience from both Bates Y&R and BBDO. I know how to incorporate a strong concept in both the digital and traditional marketing world. Naturally, I am also confident in presenting and speaking in front of clients.
2. Business minded with a design background
I have spent most of my active work life working as an Art Director and Creative Director so I have a strong background within design. The last three years I have spent as a small business owner and studying Business Management. Pål Katsler, former Account Director at Bates Y&R in his testimonial:
“Anton is a very talented creator and also a person that I have enjoyed working with immensely. A definitive strength of his is that his creative solutions are also valid from a commercial point-of-view without losing creative edge. Working with Anton means that, as a Project Manager, you can always be sure that you will be able to deliver to the client with quality and on time.”
3. I keep myself up to date by helping tomorrow’s future
Since 2005 I have been involved in teaching & managing students at Hyper Island. Although it sometimes means I give lectures, it often means that I listen to students. If I can’t listen to their problems and understand their point of view, I will not be able to guide them.
One of my favorite magazine’s have turned out to be Inc. It’s a fantastic business magazine that focuses on what makes businesses “work” – in all aspects.
Here are a few of my favorite articles from the latest issue:
The way I work, David Karp of Tumblr
“As a kid, David Karp, the founder of Tumblr, taught himself to code and dropped out of high school. Now 24 years old, Karp runs his company his way—and refuses to keep a schedule.”
Best Business Travel 2011 – altough I don’t travel frequently in business, I love traveling and love “comfort”.
