About.

Hello. I’m Alexander Skoglund, an Art Director and Creative based in Gothenburg. Currently working at Stendahls.

I believe that great advertising starts with conflict. Because wherever there is conflict, there is a story. I believe in big ideas that build brands and become part of popular culture. If you combine curiosity with creativity, you can create great change – change that is not only good for business, but also for the world.

I don’t believe in luck, or that things will turn out in your favour purely through circumstance. I believe that hard work comes first, and opportunities follow. My ambition has always been to surpass myself every time. Work hard, do it better – and never give up.

Over the past +10 years I’ve had the honour of working with clients like Telia, Länsförsäkringar, Volvo Cars, Call of Duty, Göteborg Film Festival, Göteborg Energi, Vichy, L'Oréal, Folkspel, and more besides.
