Impulsive lettering is a playful personal type project, simply using everyday items to create interesting yet impulsive and even imperfect letterings. As the title suggests, it’s simply meant to be fun use of typography and not taking itself too seriously. It removes the everyday boundaries of graphic design and typography. Usually design is set around rules, creating a pattern of laws and logic the design will follow to keep in line with the brand / campaign. Sometimes these restriction becomes too much, and as a contrast to my more serious work, I created this project as more playful exploration.

Guerrilla Gardening was an event that took place in the capital of South Korea, Seoul. The event wanted to make the city more lively by planting flowers and painting empty walls for a more green and colourful environment. I designed & illustrated the poster which was hung up around Seoul to promote the event and encourage volunteers to join.

Dystopia is a series of both illustration and typography prints, picturing a dystopian future. A lot of the inspiration for this project came from George Orwell’s 1984. But the main drive to make this came from current events in society with common trends as silencing opposition instead of an open discussion, biased press / media, censorship of the internet and privacy concerns.

Inspired by the recent “36 days of type” I decided to create a personal project for self development in animation / motion graphics, with the daily typography as a basis for this. So the challenge was to not only design / illustrate, but also animate a letter / number every single day for 39 days. Click read more to view the video.

Parallel Darkness is an abstract illustration series focusing on the parallels between how we view and recognise figurative elements in contrast to the same elements being distorted beyond recognition under different rules and logic. The illustrations are all build up from materials in contrast to each other of either being very hard shapes and geometric, while others are more organic in shape. However they draw the parallel between the materials of all being shaped into their current state by either being part of either a living organism, or a “living mass”.

Amazingly enough, it’s already been 1 year since I left Norway on December 8 2013, starting with my first location of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam – and same place I would return to 1 year later. I have experienced so much, seen so much new, tried so much new foods and met a lot of good people from so many different countries. It has truly been an unique experience – which is not over just yet.

"Sinner's Passing" is a personal illustration project. People easily pass judgement of others, even when not knowing how the person is fully like. They still stick to their first conclusion and might fully miss out on the person based on this. A passing might refer to both a pass of judgement as well as someone's death. People keep their judgement until they pass away themselves, and maybe only at the last moment they'll realise what kind of mistake they have done, which judgement they have passed too easily and how they might have sinned as a consequence of this.

“PSYCHEDELIC REALITY” is a illustrative design series focusing on the reality escapes almost everyone has in one way or another. It’s about reaching your personal climax, forgetting about everyday chores and difficulties and simply on that feeling which makes you just feel wonderful and worth living for. Our views slowly become clouded from reality, we reach another state of mind. Wether this is reacher through thrill & excitement, drugs, sex or any other way – we all go there.

Kaizers Orchestra presents “Last Dance”, a bastard brew by Lervig Aktiebryggeri. At Kaizers Orchestras farewell concerts, also named “Siste Dans”, they wanted a special beer made by Lervig Aktiebryggeri, local brewery and craft beer specialists, to make a beer to be sold at the shows. The results were “Siste Dans”, a bastard brew set in the Kaizers circus universe. The beer is exclusively sold on draught during this concert as a collaboration between Kaizers and Lervig. The poster design was printed on 70x100cm aluminum plates, decorating the concert bars. The bastard brew itself is a 5,6% pale ale, similar to Lervig’s Lucky Jack – but stronger.

We created the new website for Bjergsted Kulturpark (Bjergsted Culturepark), www.bjergsted.no, 14 stages for music, dance, culture and performance arts in Stavanger, Norway – and now an online portal. To visualize the dazzling life of the park as well as creating a more interesting overview map of the park, we decided to create an illustration of the park showing different elements of the park, characters and a sense of exploration of all the content the culturepark will contain. On the website you can use a magnifying glass to explore the park. Posters, postcards and a catalogue was created in addition to the website.

Pace & love is a little journal for ALIGN, a supplier of production- and safety critical equipment and solutions, showing their company values; Professional, Ambitious, Caring and Enthusiastic. Because of the season, they wanted a flavour of christmas added to the illustrations in the journal. For the project I decided to build the Pace & Love typography out of tools related to engineering and safety equipment, especially when building emphasis on the letters and their values. The typography is build up from over 100 deep etched objects. I did the typography, design and illustrations for this project.
