About

I'm an award-winning digital illustrator

Hi, I am a freelance Illustrator currently working in New York. I create bright and minimal illustrations and create work by using traditional and digital media. Skydiver, ramen eater, ukulelist, Mad Men fan and brand builder. Doing at the intersection of beauty and sustainability to answer design problems with honest solutions. Making at the sweet spot between aesthetics and purpose to craft an inspiring, compelling and authentic brand narrative. I’m fueled by craft beer, hip-hop and tortilla chips. Working at the junction of beauty and elegance to create strong.

Hej!

My aim is to investigate the processes of type design — and design itself — as a non-dogmatic practice. Stressing the form, stretching the concepts up to corrupting rules and misuse of tools. I like to conceive typography as system and medium.
While very diverse, my aesthetic approach often involves distinct sense of play and global vision, aiming to put the fun in functional. Strategically, my work aims to elevate brands offerings by distilling core messaging down to its clearest and fresh visual values.

Skydiver, ramen eater, ukulelist, Mad Men fan and brand builder. Doing at the intersection of beauty and sustainability to answer design problems with honest solutions. I work with Fortune 500 companies and startups. Making at the sweet spot between aesthetics and purpose to craft an inspiring, compelling and authentic brand narrative. I’m fueled by hip-hop and tortilla chips. Working at the junction of beauty and elegance to create strong and remarkable design.
