ABOUT & CONTACT


I'm a cross-disciplinary Art Director & Graphic designer based in Stockholm, developing physical and digital design and concepts for brands, organisations, institutions and initiatives worldwide. 
I strive to create progressive design that pushes the borders for what we are used to see and experience within the field of each project.
