CV/Resume and Contact

Hi friends!

My name is Jesper Jäder, an artist, designer and what you call an "all-rounder". I do what needs be done, and I make sure it's solid!

I'm optimistic, I'm eager to get going! Im driven and I work great in teams as well as alone.
I despise the darkness and I adore the summers!
Spending time at the family house in the archipelago outside Stockholm is just amazing. I've also heard that this "fresh air" thing is good for you! (the picture to the left is taken at our pier)

What i bring to your table

An eye for art

I've drawn since I can remember, and at some point I got quite good at it. This has led me to pursue other means of expression such at 3D, animation and web design

Imagination

"Beeing creative" is a term more abused than comic sans, but you know, I kind of am?

A huge part of maintaining creativity is beeing curious. Understanding how things fit together, and how stuff works help creating your all important Visual Library!

Experience

I've created around 10 games, and with a few I've won some prices.

I've worked with graphics design for both print and web as well as hand held devices

I've also been scrum master for a game project.

Teamplayer

Dependable and loyal, but most of all I've got a genuine positivity!

I'm almost always glad, and I've heard that I tend to make people happy.
