Visually Identity for the photographer Carl Anders Exhibition ‘A Game of Badminton’ at Galleri Monitor, Gothenburg, Sweden, 2016.
The exhibition displays several photos from a badminton match. That's also where the inspiration for the identity came from. As the game includes a square patterned net it felt obvious to work with a clear grid in the Identity. The Game also includes movement, high and low. So that became a big part in the inspiration of developing and drawing the typefaces thats in use; Bad Mono.
Bad Mono is a typeface based on the game badminton and were costume made for the visual identity of Carl Anders’ exhibition ‘A Game of Badminton’.
Bad Mono is based on the sports rhythm and the net of the badminton court which is built up by a grid. As the feather ball hits the net the grid squares expands and therefor most of the uppercase letters have the double letter width of the lowercase letters, just as if the ball just smashed in to them and extended them.
Making a Voice is a book where I examine what it takes to draw a typeface with the function of good readability. In the book one can follow my process of drawing a typeface referred to as Nameless typeface (Now named Homework), from the first analytic stage to the test part of digital made type.
The process reached over a period of two months where I did both research, practical work (drawing), a workshop, and final conclusions.
I were invited to design a poster for the ninth Soirée graphic exhibition which were an encounter with the north. The Soirée graphique encourages the dialogue between photography and graphic design. 28 photographers each present one piece of work, 31 graphic designers each deliver an interpretation of one of the photographs.
I got to interpret a photography of a snake so I started to do research about the snakes meaning in the nordic history, mainly I looked what the symbol of a snake stands for.
Especially since they are common on nordic stone carvings. In nordic history snakes were seen as a symbol for fertility and helped keep away rats from the house. Therefore, snake symbols are often found at old nordic stone carvings. Today snakes aren’t treated that well anymore by humans. Usually they’re frowned upon and end up as roadkills or shoes. The poster shows the contrast of what the animal used to be and what it is for us today.
The type in use is the EKTA Sans which has some characteristics of old runic lettering.
The nature of metals has fascinated mankind over the centuries, since these materials provided people with tools of unsurpassed properties both in war and in their preparation and processing. Gold and silver were known to man since the Stone Age. Lead and silver were fused from their ores as early as the fourth millennium before Christ and today metal has become a big part of our modern society.
How would we survive without metals today, it is everywhere. It is in your pocket, in our bodies and even in this publication. If the old hip-hop group Aphrodelics only knew how speaking their song title Rollin’ on chrome is for today’s modern society, because the world is literally rollin’ on chrome and other metals.
This printed matter is an homage to the material, its beauty and its functions.
The publication was created to be a part of the Book on the Fritz – Photo Book Exhibition. Therefore I created some metal letters for the books headers with the intentions to fake the experience of being bended metal photographed from above. To draw the connection between the letters and the photographies a bit further I chose to fram the letters and also to print them in blue, just as the photographies.
Reflective fascination was risograph printed at beast studio in an edition of forty.
Visual Identity for the furniture exhibition Together consisting of a logo, folder, business cards and a custom-made typeface.
Together has been exhibiting at Ventura Labrate in Milan, Italy and at Gallery A-venue in Gotheburg, Sweden.
The exhibition displays furnitures made by students from the academy of arts and crafts in Gothenburg (HDK).
As part of the identity I created a typeface called No(n)-Senese regular which is a typeface where the letter shapes are based from different kind of furnitures, such as tables, stools and benches seen from above. Together they create a letter, which goes hand in hand with the theme and name of the exhibition, Together.
Please contact me if you would like to use the typeface.
A new design for the classic book The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. The idea is to make the reader more aware and feel sympathy, both for Gregor Samsa and his family members in the strange situation that occurs in the beginning of the book when Gregor turns in to a vermin. It is both hard for Gregor being in the new body of his but also for the family members who relied on Gregors income from his work, something that he can't help them out with now that hes turned in to this vermin.
This is shown by having all the quotes from Gregor turned in ninety degrees from the story line and separate him a bit from the story. Which gives the reader an irritating moment when she/he is reading what Gregor are saying.
The grid of the book is based one the rectangle which can bee seen upon as the apartment where the whole story takes place.
Poster for Demolition Blues concert at Stall 6 in Zürich.
The poster is made through the analog technique of hand carved linoleum. A technique that breeds the same feeling as the sound of Deomlitions blues music. The design is also speaking about demolition through self-demolition, symbolized here by a cigaret. Its a choice to have a cigaret just as it is to put on a record or go to a concert. Demolition Blues have a very retro-psychedelic and mysterius sound, just as smoke or a heavy fog. You have no idea of what is hiding in there.
T–R–O(The Repetition is Obligatory) is an exploring project within the boundaries of animation and typography. All the animations are drawn in the classic stop motion way.
Summary of summaries is an alternative art catalog for the art museum Kunsthaus Zürichs art collection. The catalogue was made under the leading of the design studio OK-RM together with my fellow classmates at Zürich Hochschule Künste. Each student got to summarize one gallery room in 16 pages.
My contribution to the catalog was summarizing the 19th Century gallery containing works from Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh and others. The Main Focus show objects in the odd interior of the room that steals the attention from the art works. By treating the objects with the same respect that one usually treats art in a classic art catalog I wanted to show the real art works of the room; the interior.
In this school project, we were supposed to make a poster on the theme “What inspires you”.
My inspirations are a wide range of things, but what most of them have in common is that I can find something in them that could be made to something new, something innovative. I believe that you should be able to see innovation in the inspiration just as you can see inspiration in the innovation.
School is for the moment a big source of inspiration, especially to hear all classmates thoughts and ideas at presentations. You get new perspectives on the same project that you yourself have been working on.
My poster is a poster for the presentation of our posters, I predicted that this presentation would not fail in being inspiring and it did not.
