Project One

Naming, identity, and packaging for Basis, a new line of natural wood treatment products.

The idea of Basis originates from a strong passion for wood. Basis believe in developing environmentally responsible formulas without making any compromises to the quality of their soaps and polishes. Basis mission is to ensure woodwork a long life, durability and a beautiful natural look.

The challenge of this project was to find a visual language

that would reflect Basis high quality products while at the same time convey a product that is honest and natural. A step toward a solution was the decision of using a cardboard material that would allow the creation of packaging structures that would stand out on the shelf and still being environmentally sustainable. By utilizing a broad palette of wood surfaces a sense of warmth was given to the structures. This warm natural element in combination with a solid typographic system enable an approachable end product that invite to interaction.

Project Two

A new visual identity, website and look book for Carolina Bucci, an interior designer based in San Francisco.

Carolina Bucci is a small independent interior design firm that creates inspiring spaces with well‒considered solutions that express her clients’ style as well as her own. She often tackle problems with a minimalistic yet warm approach. She believes in functionality for modern day needs and above all, to surround yourself with things you love and care for.

The main focus of this project was the look book, a small

booklet that would convey Carolinas personality and style. Carolinas minimalistic approach echoes through out the book and was applied through out the identity. To make it more personal I created an illustration library of drawings referencing different objects associated with the interiors. Some pages also have hand drawn type telling her own thoughts. In addition to the look book and website I created a metal light box and a printed fold out that displays Carolinas selected work.

Logotype & Mark The rectangular mark have a familiar shape that relates to something stable and trustworthy. Inside is a simple line forming a loop or a bond, but it also creates a house. I wanted the mark to represent the special bond between Carolina and her interiors.

Project Three

A complete redesign of Nordica, providing quality products with the best performance for skiers.

Nordica specializes in making skis and ski boots, providing every skier the performance and comfort they are looking for. Everything they design starts with the understanding that the final product has to perform better, fit more comfortably, and strengthen the skiing experience, more than any other product on the competitive ski market.

In the ski world brands often tend to look and feel similar

and in this case outdated. The challenge with this project was to reposition Nordica as one of the best performing ski brands out there, and stand out from the competition. My main focus was to convey Nordicas unique performance, commitment and technical solutions. I approached it by using a straight-forward type system, technical infographics and dramatic black and white photography of untouched alpine landscapes. The very angular pattern is based on the top part of the symbol, used as a die cut, it gives applications an even more dynamic effect.

Logotype & Mark The Nordica mark took inspiration from the ancient nordic rune symbol: Uruz, witch represents power & strength. The angle of the logo also captures the shape of a mountain and the motion of skiing.

Project Four

Naming, identity, and packaging for a new line of skincare created for American Apparel.

American Apparel is a recognizable and affordable fashion empire that gives you garments with a classic cut. With its pop-sleaze aesthetic, the company revolves around the idea of being edgy and bold. This project imagines American Apparel breaking into the market of skin care.

To honor the aesthetic of the company, a typographic

solution was created for the new line that was named Ace. Keeping in line with their current aesthetic of classic cuts I decided to source bottles of a simple yet elegant round shape. To provide the slightly traditional bottles with some attitude, the caps accompanying the bottles were given a vibrant color palette that also would function as product differentiators. To launch this new line of products the creation of an in-store promotional display became of high importance. The solution came in the form of a transparent acrylic pegboard that would house the products as well as inform store visitors of the new product line.

Project Five

A new visual identity and promotion material for Open Air, an outdoor music festival held in Stockholm.

Open Air is a vibrant outdoor music festival that is held in Stockholm, Sweden. During August a variety of popular artists, mainly from the rock, electronic and hip-hop genres will host the festival. Open Air brings the perfect fusion of a carefully curated live line-up. Its stunning location, Gärdet close to the very heart of Stockholm and is a perfect match.

Open Air’s visual identity is all about the location of the

festival, boiled down to its core, nature. I created a pattern of flowers, and plants as reference to how the actual festival interacts with its surroundings. And how it, during its three day period, changes its budding forest location into a blossoming festival venue. I also created a playful hand lettered type system together with supporting graphics to symbolize the liveliness and euphoria that occurs at the venue.

Project Six

Naming, visual identity and packaging for a new line of environmental–friendly powdered mixed interior paint.

Nova paints steps away from the typical paint and brings a environmental‒friendly solution to the paint market. Not only is the powdered paint natural and non-toxic, but contains zero VOCs, volatile organic compounds. Nova paints is convenient, long lasting and completely biodegradable.

The challenge for this project was to retain Novas natural

and ethical stance but also create a packaging that would function well for the product and communicate quality. As a solution Novas packaging is made out of recyclable cardboard tubes and sustainability sourced wood. The rich colors of the paint appear on the cylindrical packaging, and a small accent of natural wood offsets the hues and gets consumers excited to start their own painting projects on the walls of their home. When you open the packaging the top part slopes down creating a scoop that allows for easy pouring. In addition to the paint packaging I created a paint kit that come with the vital tools needed for interior paint projects.

Project Seven

An experimental typography book designed to showcase the mysterious world of extremophiles.

In the fascinating realm of microorganisms, extremophiles are the most mysterious category of life on planet earth and perhaps on other planets as well. Nature offers abundant opportunities to life forms. However, normal survival may not be possible in environments that experience very extreme conditions such as low temperature, high pressure, radiation etc. Due to extraordinary properties, extremophiles can live and thrive under such extreme habitats.

Looking at extremophiles through a microscope, a whole

new world appears, an entire eco-system of strange creatures and shapes. To capture this world this book conceptually goes into a microscopic view. Enlarged type appears as well as abstract line art of extremophiles. The photography, captures the distinctive color associated with extremophiles but also tiny round objects, combined with the enlarged and intricate line art, it creates a dynamic effect.

Project Eight

Naming, identity, and packaging for a new retail store providing carefully curated product lines.

Contour provides a store experience where you can find carefully curated product lines, each telling its own story of meetings between people, materials and cultures. Contour store functions more like an exhibition space rather than your usual retail store. The brand itself is merely an empty vessel in the beginning that over time acquires meaning and context depending on what is on display at the given point in time.

Forming the store as an exhibition, enabled the housing

of a diverse range of contemporary designs. We believe this will cater to todays constant demand for new experiences and styles. In addition it fills a gap in the retail market where large stores often are bound to a specific style and boutique shops can not provide a holistic experience. Essentially, Contour is driven by an idea that products where form and function meet, also has a story worthy to share.

An integral part in the development of the visual system

was to create a strong and flexible packaging system that never would over-power the product nor the designer. The solution was to strip the package down to its bare essentials, its story, the product itself and the designer. This enabled us to bring the components together into one cohesive system of product photography, concise typography and a pared down color coding. The result is a package design honoring the product while telling its story with clarity and honesty.

The visual system consists of several line art graphics that

illustrates the product and its use in a naively straight-forward manner. The Essential line has an opening meaning, but for us it’s representative of the narrative of each product line that together form the story of Contour.
