Formerly Per Hansson
I'm a digital creative based in Stockholm, Sweden. I was the first one ever employed at Farfar, one of the world's most successful digital agencies (ranked world's #1 in The Gunn report
2007) and stayed there for almost a decade. Within the first year of my career I managed to win a Cannes Lions Grand Prix and since then I've received over 50 International advertising awards.
Basically I just really love creating cool shit on the web and calling it "work".
Side Projects: Stop Talking, Start Making!
Making side projects together with Oskar Sundberg is one of my favorite things. We have prepared a little session for next year's SXSW about how fun and rewarding making side projects can be. Please vore for us here

Currently on parental leave until January 2015.

The now-defunct Farfar is widely considered as one of the top digital agencies of all time. The last 4 years of its existence, Farfar was ranked in the world top 5 for digital agencies (The Gunn report 2007-2010
