One of my first real projects was to design a logo, menu and a brand identity for a new Sushi takeaway & catering place called Umi Sushi.
The main identity piece for the business are the waves. Primarily because Umi means Wave, but also because the wave illustration is similar to the patterns in fish meat.
All photographs are taken by myself.
Branding, Logo, Web, Print.
Bachelor thesis in Visual Communication. This was a group project, and a lot of the credit goes to very talented Szandra Kovács, Anette Marie Hvidsten and Line Skraastad Stenberg.
Together, we won the price for best bachelor project.
Sekkefabrikken Kulturhus is a culture centre in a small town outside of Oslo. They wanted a new visual identity that would focus on the concerts and shows they where holding, and target a younger market over the current mostly elder people.
There was a lot of ideas that we did not get to use, so this is a slightly different version then the original that I have recreated in my own image to try out some of them.
All band names, dates, and other text are just example text.

A design agency wanted a illustrated christmas card that would also function as a kind of advertising. I also included sketches for next years card (on the bottom).
A personal project where I studied some of the current trends in logodesign I see going around, and what makes them work.
Cover for NVIO's Veteran Magazine. This issue was covering the then ongoing election in Norway.
They wanted a minimalistic and trendy design, and orange is a non-political color, as well as it ensures attention in the magazine stand.
Alibi Bar and Cafe
Logo, Typography, Branding, Print.
I was hired to design the identity, menu, logo etc of a bar/café that's scheduled to open later in 2014. The location it's in has a lot of "shabby" bars/pubs, so we wanted to communicate a tidy bit higher class and steeper prices to keep the alcoholics away.
Inter VBK VolleyBall Team
A volleyball team asked for a new logo as they joined the bigger leagues. Very confident in themselves, they wanted something that gave the sense of being the best, they did not want to position themselves as "up and comers" or the underdog. An eclipse seemed appropriate, as they overshadow the competition.
Second year at school we got to choose what we wanted to do a deeper individual study on. I chose use of typography and grid in editorial design. In the practical part I wanted to showcase different use of grids, with both creative and conservative layouts. Learning the rules and then breaking them was a big part of the project.
The written part (12 000 word essay) was based on the books "Thinking With Type" by Ellen Lupton and "Making and Breaking the Grid" by Timothy Samara, as well as a selection of case studies on several magazines.
