Mikael produces appealing design with high quality, on time. He keeps it clean and in line with our games, with excellent layout. He works without prestige and is very positive when receiving feedback.

Mikael works in a very structured way and grasps changes in workflow quickly.

It’s hard to come up with something that Mikael should do differently in the Graphic Designer role as he is very skilled and produces graphics quickly without flaws.

It was great working with you on the Candy Crush Facebook stickers.

You are very creative coming up with new and additional ideas for the stickers, thinking out of the box on various types of stickers.

You were very open to the team and FB's feedback and very flexible with the changing requirements. Finished stickers in a timely manner and in advance of deadlines.

Mikael creates exceptional graphics for the CRM team and every time I am presented with something I can instantly tell that it was made by him. Mikael took the Easter campaign and turned it into a feast for the eyes; it was creative, seasonally relevant and reflected the concept of the promotion. It looked utterly beautiful! Mikael has a very special style that works amazingly well with our products. He is also extremely helpful and open to ideas and make himself approachable to everyone. He is a valuable asset to the graphics team and I cannot wait to see the next campaign designed by him.

Great to work with even though we didn't have the benefit of meeting eye to eye. The loops and feedback rounds was top notch, Mikael always had parts to present on time for me to give feedback on and keeping my client involved in the process.

2012 05 16 - Petter Borg - Retoucher, VFX, Music Producer & CEO at Better Place Productions

No word of a lie, your work is impeccable. Every request I've ever made has exceeded my expectations and raised the bar higher in terms of quality. When a ticket is assigned to you, there's no doubt of worry in my mind that I'll receive an awesome graphic back.

2013 06 04 - Gareth Young - Global Social Media @ King

Mikael is a humble guy and a very skilled graphic artist. He was hired for a quite challenging motion graphics/compositing task which he managed very well. Mikael has a personality that is very hard not to like and his broad expertise within CGI and motion graphics makes him very desirable.

I wish him all luck.
