Carl-Johan Lindqvist of Lundgren+Lindqvist :: Design and Software with Purpose and Precision
Show Notes

Carl-Johan Lindqvist is co-founder of the Gothenburg-based design studio Lundgren+Lindqvist.

Lundgren+Lindqvist’s practice covers visual identity design, art direction, graphics, print, packaging, signage, and web development. In all of these domains, their work sets the bar in terms of taste and sophistication.

L+L describe themselves as a studio with "purpose and precision," while Carl-Johan specializes as a developer who “utilizes code as a tool as natural to the design process as pen and paper.” Our conversation unpacks exactly what these ideas mean. We discuss their inspirations, process, philosophy, and tactics; their advice for younger generations; and the tensions between business, technology and craftsmanship that define creative professions today.
