signature that really began because Michelle found it hard to draw just the right kind of eyes! Another significant thing for Michelle is that she tries not to be too pretentious in her work – one human quality she really treasures in other people is self-irony and she likes to have a twist of that in her work too.

Who?

“I’m a Copenhagen based french-fries-loving, time-optimistic and eco-friendly poster maker and freelance illustrator - oh and now also a mother!” is what Michelle Carlslund would say if she was to describe herself in one sentence. 29-year-old Michelle Carlslund founded her company, Michelle Carlslund Illustration, 6 years ago while she was still studying graphic design in Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2013 she started to work full time as a poster maker and illustrator, and now her posters, frames, cards, notebooks and tote bags can be bought in houndreds of design and kids shops around the world. Michelle gets inspired by everything around her. Sometimes the ideas just land in her head out of the blue and other times a scroll through the world wide web gets her ideas flowing. Michelle’s illustrative universe is quite simple and naïve and you can recognize her illustrations by her soft pastel color palette. And the eyes of her characters are almost always closed - a

“I’m a Copenhagen based french-fries-loving, time-optimistic and ecofriendly poster maker & freelance illustrator - oh and now also a mother!,, In October 2016 Michelle became a mother for the first time to a little girl named Cleo. More than ever Michelle feels inspired to do kids designs and in between nappy changing and the work she does on her own poster collection she is working with talented partners on everything from kids clothing and toys to interior products. All launching in the beginning of 2018.

A family business

As a part of growing her business Michelle moved all the thousands of posters, frames, totes and notebooks to a warehouse and she even hired a warehouse manager who also takes care of all order- and shippingbusiness. She could not find a better candidate for that job than her mother, Britt. The entire basement of Michelle’s childhood home is now covered floor to roof with poster rags. This is an amazing arrangement and gives Michelle a lot more time to do what she does best illustrate.

SNAK A conversation game for kids We promise that this well-designed kids game will bring you good times with lots of sweet stories and opportunities to have fun and be present with each other. SNAK means “talk” in Danish and we believe that some of the most important skills we

30

develop at a young age are the ability to be present and to listen with empathy. We know that kids are very inquisitive by nature and with ”SNAK – a conversation game for kids” they will get to use their curiosity to listen, ask and talk to each other. The game is a fun training ground for kids to rehearse good and open dialogs with each other and/or the grown-ups around them in a safe and pleasant environment.

How is it played? The game is being played with the same rules as the card game “GO FISH� where you must collect sets by asking each other for cards. It looks like a regular card game but when one of the players get a full set, he or she has also has four pictures which express four words written on the cards. The player must now tell a story from their life by using one or more words from the card. If the child finds it hard to come up with a story a grown-up can help by asking questions related to the theme on the cards.
