With a freelance background in graphic design and web development, Carl-Johan Lindqvist formed Lundgren+Lindqvist with art director and designer Andreas Friberg Lundgren in 2007. Simultaneously, he studied advertising at the KY Academy (currently YRGO) in Gothenburg from 2008 to 2010. The education placed emphasis on the creative process and included a six month internship, which was conducted at their own one year old studio, where they were already taking client work.
Carl-Johan works at the intersection of design and development, bridging the gaps that often appear between concept and execution in a digital production environment. Clients to date include Apple, Epic Records (Sony BMG), EA Games, RinseFM and Lynk&Co to name a few.
Lundgren+Lindqvist’s approach is conceptually driven and the studio has built an international reputation for crafting high quality solutions that are equally compelling to the eyes and the intellect. Since the start, the studio has utilised code as a tool as natural to the design process as pen and paper.
Although often simple in form, the output is multi-layered and built upon an in-depth understanding of the project’s prerequisites. Whether the solution is physical or digital, the studio employs a bespoke approach aiming to make clear what is mudded.
Lundgren+Lindqvist’s services cover visual identity design, art direction, design for print and digital applications, packaging design, signage and web development for projects ranging from e-commerce to enterprise websites. Development projects are carried out both independently and in collaboration with top agencies and designers around the world.
