Independent Designers Collective is a Swedish design duo consisting of Niklas Rosén and Gustav Nordebrink. We specialize in creating digital design and brand identities for clients globally.
We are a response to a dynamic and ever-evolving world, where independent flexibility and network scalability meet modern demands. As an officeless team, we have an extensive network of professionals and studios that we can call upon to expand our team as needed.
Acting at the intersection of brand identity and digital design, our work spans a wide range of disciplines. From industrial design to conventional print to apps. We offer functional design for people and businesses that are looking for stable long-term solutions. Not the quick fix.
Gustav Nordebrink, a senior designer with 15 years of experience, brings a background in graphic design and a focus on geometry and iconography to the team. He primarily focuses on design strategy, brand identity, and attention to detail.
In his free time, he enjoys outdoor activities, Turkish get-ups, and creating fictional universes. He resides in Mariefred, Sweden with his wife and two children.

You’re not paying for an office full of people you don’t need. In fact, we don’t have an office at all. Depending on the task, the Collective assembles a global team, remotely. So that you have precisely the right talent working for you. And nobody else.
To name a few
Each member of the Collective is charged at 1400 SEK per hour. No cut price juniors.
Our minimum charge is 100,000 SEK. We build relationships. We don’t work like freelancers.
We work four days per week when we can, balanced with lots of outdoor activity and family time the other three.
We work remotely. So we can work with anyone, anywhere.
We want to create long-term, sustainable design experiences for people with purposeful intentions that share our views of long-lasting quality.
Digital design creates emissions because the internet sucks energy. We found out that 3.8% of the global carbon footprint relates to internet usage. So, we have a responsibility to create brand and digital products that help bring these numbers down.
