I’ve been web designing since 1999 and had sites with various names until somewhere around 2004 when I settled for the name Whirlwind. That’s the title of one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite bands; Broder Daniel.
In February 2005 I bought my first domain name; “whirlwind.nu”. I chose a nu-address since nu means “now” in Swedish. In 2010 I bought the domain name whirlwind.se which for the time being redirects here. At some point I may make the .se address the main one and the .nu the secondary.
From the beginning and for many years Whirlwind was written in Swedish but in the spring of 2006 I made a site in English as well which eventually became my main site and later my only site.
Unless otherwise stated everything you find here is made by and belongs to me. If you want to use something I’ve made just ask. I’m not impossible.

The Whirlwind Archive contains most of my old layouts. All layouts for English Whirlwind can be seen here and for Swedish Whirlwind every one dating from 2002 (before my site even was called Whirlwind) to 2007 are on display. This means my entire personal site history but the ten very first layouts I made are in this archive. Be warned: most of the old stuff isn’t what I’d call brilliant and the earliest stuff is downright horrible but like anyone doing something for a long period of time I’ve evolved and changed style a couple of times.
