About me

I'm a Copenhagen based designer and art director working in advertising and graphic design - specialising in tactile and visual design. My passion lies in creating work that combines technology with physical objects and materials in new creative ways. My profound love for tactile design and my relentless curiosity often adds a distinct playfulness to the work.

I hold a BA in Visual Communication from the Danish School of Media and Journalism and has worked for agencies such as SNASK, Crispin Porter & Bogusky and others, and for brands such as Carlsberg, IKEA, Sony and Universal. I now work independently or as part of smaller creative teams on a variety of projects and occasional side projects.

My work has been awarded with several Creative Circle awards and a Cannes Lions shortlist. My more experimental personal projects has gained international press and has been featured in multiple design publications.
