About


I’m an Art Director and graphic designer based in Stockholm, Sweden, working cross-disciplinary within the field of visual communication.

With an explorative approach my pursuit is to create concepts and designs that move beyond the current boundaries of what we are used to seeing and experiencing within each project's own field and that are socially and environmentally sustainable.

I take on projects individually as well as in the role of project- and production manager in collaboration with other creatives, such as developers, copywriters, and photographers.
