Max Sjöblom's Portfolio

Hi there! Welcome to my personal portfolio. You are probably here because you are interested in my previous work, and perhaps you are thinking about inviting me for an interview. In that case, I hope I can convince you that I'm the right person for the job.


Site content

You can find projects I have been part of on the, you guessed it, Projects page. You’ll find information about my education and working experience in the Nine to Five section, and some information about me and my interests in the Five to Nine section. All relevant contact information can be found in the Contact section.
From time to time I write about my thoughts on things related to UX design, games, scientific research and other things. You will find these musings in the Blog section.
