Axel is a very nice, fast and skilled UX unicorn who designs with code – it won't be more efficient.
Joakim Howlid, CTO at Hovedorganisasjonen Virke

Virke have been so fortunate to have established a collaboration with Axel/Prototypen. Over the past six months, Axel has contributed ideas, practical user testing and good design that have elevated our Employer Guide to the next level of usability. It's fun to work with Axel who has technical insight, is creative, solution oriented, practical and fast! Looking forward to the next joint lift together!

Axel is a unique UX designer. He has a really wide knowledge portfolio. You can always feel confident that he delivers quality, that he makes judgments from the necessary perspectives and that business goals are safeguarded. I have worked with Axel both in consulting and as a customer, and I highly recommend working with him.
Hilde Rudi Olsen, Webmaster at Hovedorganisasjonen Virke

Axel and I have worked together both at Netlife Design and at Dekode. What you first notice about Axel on the job is that his level of energy, joy and focus gets half a dozen workshop attendees out of their chairs and onto the table.

The next thing you notice is that his knowledge and talent for UX is only matched by his ability to communicate, to share, at just the right level. He does so in a fashion that is both disarming and empowering at the same time.

Once he gets down to sketching out solutions you’ll also notice a relentless drive to solve user needs while respecting business needs. If your value chain includes anything digital - you want Axel in your corner.

Match this with his structured way of working, his high work ethics, and you know it’s a person I truly recommend working with if you get the chance.

Write something about Axel.. where do I even begin? I could probably write an essay about him.

Axel is a highly talented UX-designer, with a strong technical approach and a broad understanding of all things digital. He is experienced both in his professional and personal life, which gives him an advantage in projects and client meetings; because he really understands both people and businesses. And the clients' needs.

He loves a challenge and usually solves it perfectly well. With a positive attitude towards life in general, he spreads good energy and a positive mindset on to both his colleagues and clients. He also has a high level of integrity and is very accountable. Needless to say; everybody at work loves and respects Axel.

His strong belief in simplicity and user centric design, makes him a great asset to almost every digital project. He is not afraid to challenge and speak his mind, all for the purpose of making the best digital solutions on behalf of his clients.

Needless to say; I can strongly recommend Axel.
Hillevi Røstad, Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) at Dekode

Axel got a bright digital head, and is a native designer despite his lack of designdegrees at university. He quickly grasp the need of both the client and the users, keeps a high pace towards goal, including users along the way, and is willing to learn and change as new information arise.

His skillset does not stop at the designfrontier, he is even able to do some of the codework himself. Some of our clients did not want to work with other designers than Axel.

As frosting on the cake, I would like to add that his social skillset is excellent, being an amiable colleague.
Rune Yndestad Møller, Managing Partner at Feed

Axel is genuinely interested in solving problems. He askes all the right questions, is efficient and has an enthusiastic way of presenting his work. There is no beating around the bush, and he has a unique way of getting to the core of the task and solving it.

Definitely one of the best designers I've ever worked with.
Hilde Falck-Andersen, CEO at Cognita

It has been a joy to work with Axel. He is smart, structured, knowledgeable, and very easy to communicate with. Working with a startup like ours, he grasped our concept and all details quickly, challenged our assumptions in constructive ways and came up with good ideas on how to improve our solution.

Axel does not just talk about things, but rather starts sketching things from early on and uses it to collect the necessary insights and feedback. He is precise and efficient ( a rare combination, I think) in both his thinking and his work. Axel designed responsive site for SoBo Community, collaborated closely with developers during implementation and did subsequent testing and quality assurance.

Axel gets my highest recommendations, and we ourselves would definitely use his expertise again.

I've worked closely with Axel on a number of web projects. He's clever, pragmatic and always in a good mood. He has a skillset that nicely overlaps with UX, design, and frontend, which means he really good at balancing usability, aesthetics and implementation time when making decisions. In addition, he's really organized! Can't ask for much more.

I can highly recommend working with Axel :)
Ida Aalen, Co-founder & Chief Product Officer at Confrere

Axel always brings the best version of himself to work. This spreads good mood and motivates those he works with to deliver their best. Axel cares about the people he works with, while providing honest and direct feedback. His balance between caring and giving honest feedback means that everyone who works with Axel has the opportunity to develop. He is an excellent team player.

As a UX designer, Axel is systematic and efficient, detail-oriented and holistic. He excites customers, project managers, product owners, designers and developers with high quality UX design, at the agreed time and scope. Axel also has in-depth front-end expertise, a major advantage in multidisciplinary digital teams.

I recommend everyone to contact and work with Axel!
