I'm into design concepts, developing ideas and turning them into graphic design and animation in a variety of ways

My greatest passion is visualizing and conveying the ideas, goals and messages by using graphic design, animation, web design and similar.

I have years of experience in knowing which tools to use in what way and how to best go about a branding message, just the way your customers like it.

What kind of designer am I?

I can best be described as an interactive designer, as my skill range from graphic design to digital media and film production. With my diverse hands-on experience I can step into almost any pipeline and produce visually engaging content on the spot. 

Graphic design from the simple to the complex

The most important step is defining the style that eventually becomes a visual product. I can handle all aspects of graphic design from idea generation and design concepting to production and finishing. 

Digital design across media and boundaries

I know how to utilize any graphic design across media and platforms. Could be on your website, in your webbanners, on your social channels or through your app or new technology.

Animation in both 2d and 3d on a very high level

My interest in film production and photorealism has given me skills and tools to create both photorealistic products, 2d animation for social media and fully 3d created commercials.

Understanding the brand and what comes next

Producing visuals is not enough. I know how to talk with clients and together find the correct course of action to the current project and the next.

Personal skills

While my passion for designing is always present, sometimes other valued skills are equally important. I’m good with clients because I know how to listen attentively and ask the questions that matter to both you and to me. I also make sure you know what I’m doing, so nothing is being left behind.

Doing creative work is always a mess! To counter this I’m very structured in my workflow and have my own little pipeline of tasks to do in specific orders depending on what is being produced. And I never leave a complete mess on my desk, virtual or physical!

Past experiences / CV

Interning at Just Branding in the hopes of gaining daily new experiences and challenges.

2020 - Animation Bootcamp course at School of Motion

Online course Animation

After three years of working with a variety of animation I decided to re-learn animation and how to achieve believability and physically “correct” movement. It has been the best and most challenging three months of 2020.

From the remnants of the student group I now run a dedicated Facebook group, where we help each other move forward through challenges, collaboratory work and giving each other feedback. I learn a lot from fascilitating these challenges and inviting people to take part.

Animation UX & UI Graphic design

Had a versatile role at Lokalebasen.dk where my responsibilities included converting old web banners and comming up with new animated ones. A big part of my role was to optimize the company web service using HotJar to track user journeys and interactions, then redesigning UI elements in Sketch and pushing those design changes from InVision to the developers. Part of my UX role was also to participate in design sprints, looking for errors and reporting them.

Finally I optimized layouts for internal presentations and helped develop a template for automated PDF creation for business users.

2016-19 - Interactive Design student at Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX)

Education Animation Graphic design UI design Design conceptualization Illustration 3d

A few years after I graduated as a graphic designer I felt that I needed something more, a deeper understanding of WHY I was designing and not just how to design. DMJX offered that to me and much, much more. I learned to collaborate with idea makers and photographers to produce intellectual and visual stunning design concepts and really developing unique creations from scratch. I was also introduced to motion graphic design and 3d, which unfolded as a complete world of its own.

In the end I learned what it means to design for a reason and not just because someone ask me to do it.

2014-20 - Freelance graphic designer
