Music & technology

Magical Thinking is a crazy little company that works with music and technology to make stuff less shitty. The company was founded in 2017 by Henric Romlin, an award-winning Entrepreneur, Interaction Designer and Systems Developer from Sweden.

Henric's dedication is definitely over average, it seems there is no task too big to be accomplished for him. He is good in preparing, timing and executing plans. He enjoys challenges and has acquired a large collection of skills through project solving /.../ In my opinion, Henric has a very promising future in the field of Interaction Design.

Coding is designing

Steve Jobs (1955-2011), commenting on a NeXT programmer’s work, once said “You’ve baked a really lovely cake, but then you’ve used dog shit for frosting”. We believe that coding is designing, and craftsmanship and attention to detail is what separates excellent work from average work.
