Coffice i Karlstad!

Äntligen kommer Karlstad få ett coffice – en blandning av kontorsplats och café. En kreativ mötesplats för frilansande designers, företag i kreativa näringar som behöver nya miljöer eller större firmor som blivit lite trångbodda. Eller för den som bara blivit lite kaffesugen.

På Coffice Karlstad kommer det, förutom sköna fikaplatser, finnas skrivbord och bekväma stolar, mötesrum att hyra, stans bästa kaffe, fritt wifi, möjligheter till utskrifter och eget låsbart skåp för betaland medlemmar. Väldigt passande om du är i stan över dan eller om du sitter mycket hemma och jobbar.

Coffice Karlstad kommer finnas i nya handelskvarteret Valvet, Karlstads nya galleria – eller handelskvarter, som det tydligen ska kallas. Ingången till Coffice är från Västra Torggatan in mot innergården och upp genom entrén inne till vänster. Där, en trappa upp, hittar du Karlstads bästa mötesplats och den givna platsen för stans kreativa näringar.

Svensk Form kommer även använda lokalen till att arrangera seminarier, utställningar och till att sälja varor från Svensk Forms medlemmar.

Jag rekommenderar att ni tar och läser mer om det på och kikar in nästa gång ni är i Karlstad och behöver jobba av några timmar.

Ok, det här låter som ett reklaminlägg, men ni fattar säker varför.

What I’ve been reading lately (week 12 of 2014)


Over before it started #blogg100

Writing blog posts for 100 days in a row was a mission that failed before it had even started. The reason isn’t that I didn’t have anything to say, or didn’t have the time to do it. I have a bunch of half-written posts already and I don’t have any less time than anyone else.

The reason is, I think, that I want to write when I feel like it, when I have something to present and also have made the effort to do it really well. I don’t want to do it just because I have to do it every day or because I’m expected to do it by someone else.

I think many people drop out of the blogging everyday thing when they feel quantity comes before quality, and I’m pretty sure I would have ended up there too. I’m gonna keep blogging, but not under the #blogg100 tag.


What I’ve been reading lately (week 9 of 2014)

I’ve been doing link sharing roundups every week on and off for the last couple of years or so, and with the #Blogg100 thing going I thought I might as well pick it up again. So here you go, the lastest UX design links I’ve found and shared lately.

100 blog posts in 100 days?

For the third year in a row, there’s a blogging movement thing in Sweden called Blogg 100, which basically means you should write one blog post a day for 100 days. I’ve never been in it before, but I thought it could be the thing I need to get this blogging thing going again.

I’m probably gonna switch a little between English and Swedish, longer posts about things that’s been on my mind and surely shorter posts like videos or talks that I like in between.

I have a list of stuff I’ve been thinking to write about, but I leave you no guarantees that it will last for 100 days. But that’s ok, this is a good time to get the posts written and see if I like it as much as I used to before.

Tagged – my latest personal project

The last few months I’ve made one of my projects on the to-do list a reality. I’ve spent quite some time setting up a code base that I can feel comfortable with, implementing the features that I believe most of the users, myself included, would like to see – and it’s off to a pretty good start. It’s a nice feeling making a reality of all those sketches and notes.

What I’ve built is a web based betting portfolio management tool called, used to track the progress of your bets and give useful statistics based on these bets, so you know what types of bets you make you’re money on and what you should avoid. I’m not a huge sportsbettor myself, but I’ve already made quite a bit lot of use by the site and it’s turned into a tool that is appreciated among the bettors out there, especially in Sweden and Norway so far.

Stats from the last year

Personally, I’ve used this time to refresh my development skills and although that’s still not my favorite part of web design, it’s nice to stay up with frameworks like Laravel, jQuery and Zurb Foundation, which are the parts I’ve used the most. It’s also really sweet to have a little playground to implement new design ideas and solutions on people to see how it sticks.

Stats from the last month

If your a person interested in sports and betting, feel free to sign up at and start registering your bets. It’s all free.

Top 29 songs of 2013

A decent year, music wise. Top new finds for me was French Films and CHVRCHES. Best album overall was probably Lorentz & Sakarias. I can’t even count how many summer nights I spent this year on the balcony with that album on (well, actually I can, thanks to
