2 CROWS BREWING CO

Illustration / graphic design

While it was still winter and cold I began designing for spring.

I made this label for a piquette for 2 Crows Brewing Co. A piquette is a fresh, sparkly and bright tasting drink. It was released just in time to celebrate springs coming.

Illustrations are interpretations of crushed grapes, bubbles and spring.

JONES' HONEY

Illustration / graphic design

My friend moved to the suburbs and started making honey.

I made him a label as step 1 (after the honeymaking) to take over the world of honey.

The illustrations are interpretations of bees, flowers and pollen in the hot summer air.

I often work for Børnekulturhuset Sokkelundlille – a childrens culture house. They always let me use all the colors and all the textures I want to – well, almost.

LOGO, PATTERN & BOOK

Visual concept / identity/  graphic design / illustration

In 2015 I designed a logo for the house. I wanted it to express the creativity, playfulness and joy that you meet in the house.

In 2017 I was asked to make a book about the activities in the house. This gave me the opportunity to continue the work with the logo – transforming this to a pattern used throughout the book.

(2015 & 2017)

CIRKUSVOGNEN – A FESTIVAL FOR CHILDREN

Graphic design

Cirkusvognen is part of the childrens culture house – but also its own entity why it does not follow the visual concept for the rest of the activities in the house. Thats why every year I can try something new. New colors, new patterns, new textures. Every year this is true play & true fun.

Illustrations by Maren Grosen.


(2015 and every year since)

HEROS FOR NEW WEBSITE

Visual concept / graphic design

The city of Copenhagen got a new website – and therefore Børnekulturhuset Sokkelundlille also got a new website. This site needed to say childrens culture, creativity, play og just a lot of fun.

I created this concept for the headers which gave this expression and also the flexibility needed on web and mobile.

FLYERS

Concept / graphic design / typograhy by hand

Different invitations I designed using elements from the pattern as a recognisable element.

(2020)

I like working with the texture from a pencil.

MAGASINET F5

Graphic design / illustration

Magasinet F5 was an online magazine on the digitalisations effect on our lives and especially our work lives.

I made this programs for their conference concept F5 Box.

(2017)

SANKT ANNÆ SYMFONIORKESTER

Concept / graphic design / illustration

Season folders for a youth symphoni orchestra.

Designed with inspiration in old posters for opera, teather & concerts.

Colors based on the colors in the logo, set in order to match the time of year.

(2018 & 2019 – then came the covid)

Here’s a magazine & a book I’ve made.

FLEXWERKER

Concept / graphic design

Flexwerker is a cooperative working to create sustainable work lives focusing on the bigger and bigger group of precarious workers.

I designed the first edition of their magazine ’FLEXWERKER’ working with bold colors to give a feel of activistic work.

(2019)

RYSLINGE EFTERSKOLE


Concept / graphic design

Second edition of the book ’Den der bog om projektledelse’ used in education in project management for young people.

Designed with the idea of it being a book, the students would feel invited to contribute to – with notes, ideas and thoughts – so throughout the book we used the students own quotes in their own handwriting.

(2019)

Just behind The Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen a small shop selling design opened in 2018 – I had the luck to make their visual identity.

lille-gul-pil

VISUEL IDENTITY

Visual concept / graphic design / illustration

The shop was named after the famous danish opera singer Bonna Søndberg, who lived in the same building.

The logo is designed over her handwriting – I loved the punctuation in the end – so theatrichal – I needed to integrate it in the logo. For the pattern I created a contemporary take on marble.

Designed everything you need, when having a small business.

(2018)

NOTEBOOK

Graphic design

And also that little extra you don’t really need – but it is definitely very good to have.

(2018)

I like structuring information and making diagrams.

(2021)

Two days a week I work in the public library of Køge – designing their catalogues, folders, posters & everything in between.

lille-gul-pil

KØGEBIBLIOTEKERNE

Graphic design

More projects on it's way!

(2021-2022)

Never not sketching. I bring my notebooks everywhere I go – from Copenhagen to Horsens & New Delhi to New Mexico.

lille-gul-pil

SKETCHBOOKS

Pages from different sketchbooks.

Playing with colors and drawing typography is my meditation.

I use my sketchbooks as an idea library – much is not very good but sometimes I hit gold – or gold adjacent – enough to get a new idea at least.

(2014-today)

MONSTER

Illustration / embroidery

I continously explore other materials than paper. Many years ago it started with this embroidered monster mask.

There’s more embroidered stuff on my instagram.

(2013)

This year I hope to add a book cover to my portfolio – or maybe even several book covers! So if you need a book cover or knows someone who needs a book cover – let me know!

Of course you’re also welcome to contact me about not book cover related projects.
