About me 

I believe in development, for myself, companies, projects, teams and ideas. I'm passionate about storytelling, mainly through imaginative visual design. This is why I'm in the business of Communication Design. I want to develop people and companies forward by creating new thinking concepts and aesthetic communication. I want to empathise audiences and bring them an experience above the ordinary...

This is me: West coast born, pescetarian, student, Netflixer, communication designer, Disney-lover, detail-maniac, foodie, big fan of sustainability, brainstormer, team builder, empathic and insightful learner...

I now balance my days of school with personal creative work and hobbies. What you see on this website is my personal process and development within my field. 

Perhaps we can work together! 
Please say hello and let me know your thoughts and ideas!

2017-12 Internship Oscar Properties
Marketing internship at the real estate company Oscar Properties in Stockholm. My main project is to create video material for the company to use in social media. I'm also working on a "Christmas Greeting" which has become a stop motion project. Besides the motion graphics I'm also working on a presentation of how the company will work with brand building through communication/tonality in social media and digital platforms in 2018.

2017/09 Student Lab Postkodlotteriet
I took part in Berghs Student Lab for the client Postkodlotteriet. The brief was to come up with an idea about how the lottery should approach their tagline "Det bästa med att vinna är att dela med sig" (translation "The best thing about winning is to share it") to a younger target group. Our concept was rewarded the winning idea by the client, focusing on highlighting positive egoism and that the lottery winner is a dreamer who's buying something for themselves – but that it affects people in their vicinity positively. We re-wrote the tagline to "Det är alltid kul att vinna - inte bara för dig" (translation "It's always fun to win - not only for you") 

2017/05 Internship The Forumist
During my internship at The Forumist I was Managing Editor, mainly working on creating and developing campaign and collaboration ideas for several companies, such as Whyred and Peak Performance.
