Fredrik Öst
SNASK // Co-Founder

Fredrik was raised amongst tall, blonde Swedes with three older sisters. Born and abandoned by his biological mother as an infant outside a South Korean police station in 1981, Fredrik found a home in Sweden after living in an orphanage until he was 1.5-years-old. Later in life, in the army, Fredrik learned that he was born with a heart defect—specifically, his heart to be backwards in his chest—that won’t respond to EKGs in the case of an accident. After graduating college in the UK, he started up the internationally renowned design, film and brand agency SNASK in Stockholm together with his friend Magnus Berg. In 2012, they wrote a book called Make Enemies & Gain Fans about creative entrepreneurship that got on’s Top 5 Bestsellers list. They lecture all over the world and their reputation is that they are part designers, part rock stars who are representing a new breed of agencies taking over the world.
