Owl on Apple iOS 14.6 ABOUT

Gabriel Uggla is a Swedish UX designer & strategist that creates delightful visuals, services and products. As a born and raised Scandinavian, he strives to design simple, thoughtful, and beautiful experiences made for everyone. He combines aesthetic sensibility with insights, technological understanding and business sense.

With experience leading design projects across disciplines and companies, he believes the key ingredients to successful teams are a large scoop of humility & empathy mixed with diversity and a healthy work culture. Naturally with a sprinkle of fun & games on top.

Gabriel has built strategies and experiences for a broad range of platforms, including consumer electronics, mobile apps, web platforms, wearables, bicycles, and cars. He has worked with promising start-ups, established SMEs and world-leading Fortune 100’s —in more than 60 professional projects for 40+ clients.

In his career Gabriel has been honored to have his work published in Time Magazine, exhibited by the World Design Organization, and awarded by the IxDA, iF and others. He has also been fortunate to live and work in Sweden, Austria, The Netherlands, California, Germany, and Norway —experiencing lots of inspiring people, places, brands and studios.

When not designing, he loves to play with his son Leon, cook with friends, ride his bicycle, or create yet another Spotify playlist.
