I'm Mathias Mikkelsen, a freelance designer & founder of Timely. Born and raised in Norway, currently living in San Francisco, CA.

I design and build digital products. Focused, simple products that delights, delivers and makes people's lives better.

In December 2013, I launched Timely, a time tracking app to end time tracking, and have been working full-time with it since.

I'm always up for a chat, so don't hesitate contacting me. I also do the occasional freelance project. Clients hire me to conceptualize, wireframe, design and implement products, apps and websites, as well as creating motion graphics videos. See some of my work.
