Johan Evander is our newest Concept Designer. He’s also one of our very first employees. After nearly ten years at Symbal, Johan has experienced all our ups and downs first-hand. Now he’s embarking on a new journey with his recent promotion from Visual Designer to Concept Designer.
Thanks to the new role, Johan is getting much more involved in the process of creating and selling solutions.
“The biggest difference is that I focus more on coming up with, documenting and presenting ideas instead of developing someone else’s, which is usually the case when you’re a Visual Designer. The most exciting part is getting to do more writing for all sorts of projects. It can be anything from e-learning courses to film scripts.”
Johan sees Symbal as a company that values creativity and gives him the chance to work with a wide range of projects and customers.
“We’ve got a unique offer. There aren’t many places where you can work with change the way we do at Symbal, especially not in Sweden. Companies like us don’t grow on trees.”
Back when Johan was first recruited to Symbal he only had five co-workers, including founders Peter and Anders. Over the past ten years he’s watched the company expand to 21 strong. It’s a great satisfaction to be able to contribute even more to the company’s progress in his new position.
“We started out as a rowdy little boy’s club and now we’re a full organization. It’s been educational, to say the least. Now I’m looking forward to the new challenges that come with being a Concept Designer. And celebrating a full decade on team Symbal.”
