Color drawing

I’ve recently started challenging myself with using the pen tool in illustrator to draw more and also too start making designs with more color in them. This is what I’ve come up with so far. 


Icons chubby dude

Here are some icon designs I did for a project. We decided half way through to go in a different direction, but I’m still pleased with how they turned out. Kinda grew attached to the little chubby dude.


Fretex

Fretex (a part of the salvation army in Norway) was opening a new store in Tønsberg, and I got to help out with some frosting design. Definitely the loooongest print file I’ve ever made. Close to 16 meters! 

It was a good learning curve. I’ve made frosting designs before, but nothing like this. So many elements and with different frosting opacities too. Really pleased with the end result :) 




Lights

You guys might have guessed that I am very drawn to dark and “clean” photography. Lots of landscapes and portraits in an open studio space. I started a while back testing out doing drawings on photography. Ref. on the main page of my folio - the picture of clouds with floating crosses. I have been meaning to do more of it, but just never seem to fin the time. Until now that is. 

These amazing photos are sourced from the stock photo site Little Visuals, but I did do the editing! Hope you all enjoy them :) 

Nic, the author and photographer of little visuals sadly passed away leaving his work and website behind at the age of 26. His family are keeping the site online and you can contribute by donating to Hand on Heart Charity to provide a number of schools or sports areas with portable defibrillators in Nic’s memory. 


New Deal

Made a new logo for a sales campaign at work using the fonts from the visual identity of If.
Was fun only being allowed working with two fonts.


Video

Video is not something I get to do a lot . I much prefer still photography to be honest, but these days my clients at my 9-5 have been requesting videos more and more.

Through Opplæringssenteret for visuell kommunikasjon in Oslo I got to attend a three day after effects course to test some things out and get a feel for the program. This video is what I ended up making. Nothing huge but it came together well. I’m proud of my squiggly line! 


Illustrate

I don’t do illustrations a lot. Not in my 9-5 or in my personal work either. I used to draw a lot but I guess these days it’s only logo designs etc. Not a comic or a portrait. Almost forgot how fun it was (and painfully annoying when you get stuck!) Anyways, got the opportunity to make something for work. Here hare some sketches. Unfortunately the client wanted to go in a different direction, but I can still show you guys! :) 

 



OMVR

Sometimes you get the opportunity to collaborate with good friends and this project made me very happy. Together with norwegian artist OMVR and illustrator Julie Aida we made OMVR’s new single cover for UP IN THE AIR. The response has been amazing and people are loving the music! 

If you haven’t had a chance to listen, check out the song here!


Trondheim offices

A while back I was involved in decorating If insurance newest flagship offices. The job consisted mostly of consulting work, but I did get to do some awesome frosting designs for the meeting rooms and sourced some pictures for key walls around the space.

Recently got to go back up there (in Trondheim) to see how the people that worked there interacted with the space and to see the end result for myself. The feedback I got from the workers was amazing and we are looking into making elements from the Trondheim offices a standard for future renovations.

Got some pictures sent over the other day!

Obsessed

I’ve become obsessed with landscape photography and I think people around me have noticed. A colleague asked me what the deal was and I had no answer and still don’t.

I took so many photos on the plane that I now have a backlog of pictures that I keep posting on Instagram. I’ve been trying to portray the end of autumn and beginning of winter. I like them 

All photos are taken with an iPhone 6 


Travel

I’ve been traveling a lot these days. Some for work and some for fun. I like the in-between places and I love to be at the airport. It’s not the overpriced food that does it, but rather to be a stranger amongst other strangers traveling. Observing or just reading a book. I only read when I’m traveling. Don’t think I have the attention span to be sitting still at a familiar place just reading. 

Anyways. I have been taking some photos on my phone and editing them as I go. Excuse the poor quality but I like them and I hope you do to…

Since I’m not the best at updating my folio with recent work I thought I at least would use this platform to post what I’m currently working on :)  Small projects here and there.

Stay tuned!
