1997 I started my own design company. From the beginning I worked a lot with graphical design and my first job was a 20th anniversary product for Göteborg International Film Festival. That led into a collaboration with the company Ohlsson & Lohaven AB between 1997 and 2011. From 1997 I have had about 15 different products for sale at Designtorget and at two occasions, 2009 and 2010, I was nominated to Årets Sak at Designtorget. I also designed for Form Nasielsky between 2008 and 2012. In 2012 I also started to design lighting for Markslöjd and LampGustaf.

2010, me and Franz James, were offered a assignment from BSK Arkitekter to design a clothes & towel hook for the new forensic hospital Helix in Stockholm. In 2012 the company James & Thedin AB was formed with a focus on interior design for psychiatric hospitals and correctional units. James & Thedin was awarded with Plastovationer Awards 2012 for the suicide preventive Hook JT-100. In 2016 I formed a new brand with Per Vihlevi called Kimper Design to design exclusive and innovative products in wood.

2017 I decided to leave the company James & Thedin AB to focus on lighting design for Markslöjd.
