Who am I?

Well, you tell me.
I am currently studying graphic design at Berghs School of Communication, Stockholm. My passion is within typography,illustration and visual communication in the printed media.

I graduate this spring so I guess it's time to shape up and get a job. If you like what I do feel free to drop me an email.

Here are some selective prints I've designed for Tshirt Store. Some prints are more conceptual than others, but I try to have fun with it, mixing styles and expressions with pop cultural references.

Rookies by Rookies was a collaboration project with Berghs School of Communication and The Swedish Fashion Council. Our task was to streangthen the brand of Ida Pyk. The designer, model and out-and-abouter Ida Pyk is the core of her own brand and therefore the central figure in the campaign.

Happy Wrapping


Role: Designer
Type: Illustration


During my internship at Happy F&B I helped designing the gift paper for Christmas ‘09.
The concept was “The Little City Architect” and invites everyone to be creative with their gift wrapping. We produced three sets of textures (wrapping paper) and a set of stickers so that it’s possible to create and design small architectorial buildings. The stickers had details in gold foil and UV gloss.


This was a collaboration with Viktor Waldås.


Den alternativa pensionen


Role: Art director/illustrator
Type: Advertising


"Den alternativa pensionen" managed to get silver at swedish advertising competition Guldlådan. The client was Babyshop.se and they wanted to get people to their webshop during the holidays. The idea was simple. "Shop at babyshop.se and save time, time you can invest in your children."

This was a collaboration with Viktor Waldås, Elistabeth Fischer and Linus N. Bertholdsson
