Obsession of Time was reunited a couple of years ago after a very long silence. They brought back the sound of the 80’s with a fresh take, with an unchanged passion for music and the electronic machines they use to produce their tunes. I was approached to design the logo for a new series of releases starting this year – taking on the visual heritage of the act in true neon style. And as it happens, I have designed real neon signs in my past and created numerous visualisations of these wondrous sources of light already – so there is actually some authenticity to these designs for various formats online and in print.

Special edition label design for a limited release from Sledgehammer Brewing Company Sweden. It is not every day that you get a beer dedicated in your name. Very proud to have mine and my graphics on this one, and that it is named after one of my earliest music releases at that. All in Art Deco style. Premiered in January this year.
Full visual identity for Dose Response Recordings is in the making. A simplistic logo and industrial styled graphics.
The first batch of label design for Sledgehammer Brewing Company Sweden is out along with the amazing brews of the local brewery with international ambitions. A truly colourful and fun range to work with with an overwhelming positive response. really looking forward to the continuation of this.
My annual Christmas countdown this time consisted of 24 hand made images of a fairy-tale like winter town, inked on carefully selected course paper for a true hands-on feel through the entire process.
The originals where scanned in high resolution and combined into a single digital image measuring over 8.000 x 10.000 pixels. And after that divided again onto their different parts and posted on Instagram – one each for every day in December until the 24th.
The decision to work with traditional materials instead of digital tools sprung out of an urge to rediscover my roots – and try to develop the techniques I used in the past further. One of the really pleasant challenges with this project was to create basic patterns for each type of material featured in the complete image – ranging from algae and pine spruces through bricks, ice and roof tiles. It was great fun to get all the details into place.
Above, photograps of the finished originals – and below the scanned result.
