Veien fremover

For litt siden la jeg ut en artikkel på Medium om at jeg har sagt opp jobben, og vil satse på design fulltid. Det jeg har å tilby Jeg kan layout. Og farger. Og typografi. Jeg har designet utallige brosjyrer, flygeblader, messevegger, reklameannonser og et par bøker. Jeg liker bokstaver, og hvordan riktig font kan […]

La oss snakke Comic Sans

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Comic Sans er ille, eller hva? Alle vet dette. Alle vet hvor teit og dum og stygg denne fonten er. Helt siden Vincent Connare bestemte seg for at Times New Roman ikke passer seg i et tegneserielignende interface som Microsoft Bob i 1994, så han lagde en ny font basert på skriften i Alan […]

Teach a man to reason…

Teach a man to reason, and he'll think for a lifetime.

…and he’ll think for a lifetime My tablet hasn’t been working for some time, but today, as I was plugging it in to try figure out if I can get it fixed or should be looking for a new one, it worked. Just like that. Go figure. To celebrate, I quickly squibbled these lines from […]

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] …happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr purr purr. (Don’t you just love it when colleagues plant ideas into your head?)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Your originality sucks

Plant from the mountain above Mogan

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text](Yes, in English, for once. Oh, and there might be some offensive language. You have been warned.) So, before I got up this morning, I was sitting browsing through articles on just about anything and everything design related. I love design. I’m a graphic designer by trade, and I doubt my head will ever forget […]

Friday Inspiration: Sagmeister on the power of time off

Stefan Sagmeister is one of the designers that makes me think simply by opening his mouth. I don’t always understand his work. Sometimes I even find it frustrating, and I find it disagrees with my view of design. But when he gives talks, he’s one of the more inspiring design thinkers. His philosophy is what […]

Summery poster play

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As some of you might know, I’m a graphic designer. This flyer is one I originally made for the company I work for, and then I reworked it a bit to work as a separate poster. Ironically, everything went wrong while trying to post this. Yay!

Bryllupsmonogram

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] «Hjelp meg, Nadia, A og C skal gifte seg! Kan du lage et bryllupsmonogram?» «Det har jeg aldri gjort før, så det tror jeg sikkert at jeg kan», svarte jeg. Så da ble det monogram, da, med hjerter og en illustrasjon av ringene de hadde valgt ut. Dagen ble nok fin, den, så håper […]

Stuff you learn

These last three years I’ve been living in Bournemouth, UK while doing a BA(hons) in Graphic Design. As I am originally a Norwegian, this was a big move. And from such moves (and that thing about actually going to uni) you learn stuff. Here’s a quick bulletpointed summary of my learnings: About design: Keep it […]
