Working at Opera Software, one of the world's longest-running web browser companies, there was a bit of everything in the job description: Web Design, Print Design, Front-end Development, Advertising, Art Direction, Branding, etc. Here is a mere sample of that work.

My redesign work of Opera's website was specifically driven to target downloads in what we called "emerging markets" - where most mobile users were just starting to transition to smart phones, from the more traditional feature phone.

The website not only became one of Norway's most highest-traffic websites, but also served it's purpose well, increasing downloads of the product through a design that not only looked clean and represented the brand, but also worked effectively on slow connections.

Future website designs over the next three years failed to out-perform this design in terms of downloads, meaning the website existing today is only a slight variant of my original work.
