HI! I am a 27 year old design student from Norway, studying at Kolding Designschool in Denmark. I have lived in Denmark the past 6 years, which has given me a good dan-nor accent. My field is communication design, and what excites me the most is when I get to work directly with a user group, creating for and with others, looking at projects in an anthropological way. The same way I go to a project with an open and often humoristic approach, at the same time it should have substance. It should communicate to people, in a way that moves or educates them. Or just triggers their associations, like "haha, yes that is so true!" I love the qwerky and unexpected, looking at peoples habits and behavior. The goal is definitely to work with children's culture. But also do projects that talks to the children in adults. Techniques Let us not forget the analogue skills and traditions. The beauty of working in hand, giving a product charm and an appreciation of all the work behind it. But let's also be realistic, time relevant and sometimes quick and smooth. And the most beautiful creation of all; when the analogue and the digital forms together in a exciting fusion. More concrete - I work a lot in hand, but almost always runs it through the computer afterwards for finishing. I especially love animating in AE, I use most of the Adobe pack on a daily basis, and love learning new tricks and skills.
