About


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

I create visual identities, do design for digital platforms and printed matter, set design, exhibition design, illustration, animation and more.

With a norm-critical approach, I work exploratively in the pursuit of creating concepts and designs that move beyond the current boundaries of what we are used to seeing and experiencing within each project's own field.

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.
