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.
Updated visual identity for the industrial music act Neurobash, including new logo and typeface design and two cover images. Matching photography by Finkseye.
Logo design for the upcoming Swedish podcast Före detta Fröken Duktig.
Graphic design concept for the post-apocalyptic short film MINDSET, including title design for the film, poster and Facebook-adverts imagery.
The year continues with the ongoing creation of a visual identity for Trevlig helg! bold new Sledgehammer Brewing Company of Sweden. The name and logo of the brewery was inspired by the nickname of founder and master brewer Fredrik “The Sledge” Lind. The symbol is a stylistic hammer of Thor from ancient nordic mythology – combined with a modified sans serif.
The visual identity contains numerous versions of the logo for different use, a basic colour scheme inspired by shades of malt and beer, font recommendations, pattern designs derived form the logo symbols and a basic label design – and also a proposal for premium releases, planned further ahead. And more is to come.
