In 2021, Simon stepped in as the lead iOS developer at GeoGuessr, the popular geography game. Over the course of ten months, he played a pivotal role in guiding architectural decisions and developed a custom UIKit-based navigation system that encapsulated SwiftUI views. Additionally, Simon provided mentoring to team members and occasionally assisted in organizing the mobile team's weekly hour of fun activities.

Mind Vault App Icon

Mind Vault

During our collaboration on the new app for our client, Mind Vault, we designed an icon that, unfortunately, wasn't ultimately utilized due to the company's shift in direction, which even involved a name change! If we had proceeded with this icon, our focus would have been on further refining the MV word-mark for enhanced clarity and impact. A cool side effect of the word-mark: when the text is highlighted in macOS OCR recognition, it accurately identifies it as 'MV'.



In 2020, Max joined Quill with the mission to enhance team communication. Quill was specifically designed to streamline your notifications, ensuring you receive only the most relevant ones, allowing you to focus on what matters most. With Quill, you could efficiently manage incoming conversations, prioritize the crucial ones, and peacefully disregard the rest. In December of 2021, Quill embarked on a new journey following its acquisition by Twitter.

Swedish Railways

Swedish Railways

Between 2015 and 2020, Max was hired through Bontouch as the lead mobile designer to assist the state-owned Swedish Railways company in creating a top-notch app for iOS and Android, along with Apple Watch compatibility. This app allows users to purchase tickets and provides guidance throughout their journey while keeping them updated on traffic information. It caters to both commuters and those visiting friends and family, ensuring a seamless travel experience for all.

Kalkyl Calculator


Our team had the opportunity to contribute to the design of a truly remarkable calculator. Our focus was on creating a user experience with incredibly satisfying button presses, achieved through animated tap states and haptic feedback. Every interaction with the calculator was designed to be both visually pleasing and tactilely satisfying, enhancing the overall usability and enjoyment of the app.

Spotify Music


In 2013, our team helped conceptualize the functionality of Spotify Connect, their feature designed to seamlessly connect to a speaker or other devices and control playback regardless of the music's source. The logo we crafted played on the Spotify logo itself, with the concept that when connected, it would animate and fill in the circle. Our efforts resulted in a conceptual UI video that played a pivotal role in driving forward the design work for Spotify Connect.



Back in 2010, during Max's time at Ocean Observations, he assisted the second largest Japanese operator in creating their suite of Android apps, which included a home screen and launcher. Max was responsible for providing visual design direction, conceptualizing ideas, and documenting for implementation. The IS01, designed by Naoto Fukasawa, was a unique blend of a smartphone and a laptop, inspired by food packaging aesthetics. The release of the IS03 phone was notably promoted by Lady Gaga and extensively showcased throughout Shibuya.
