ABOUT

I’m a cross-disciplinary Art Director & Graphic designer based in Stockholm, developing physical and digital design and concepts for brands, organizations, institutions, and initiatives. 

I strive to create progressive design that pushes the borders for what we are used to seeing and experiencing within the field of each project.

Disciplines involve Art Direction, Graphic Design, Set Design, Illustration, Editorial Design, Visual identities, Animation, Exhibition design and Scenography.

I take on projects individually as well as collaborate with other creatives, like developers, copywriters, and photographers. With the experience of managing bigger projects in teams, I also do production & project management.
