About

Hello! I'm a multidisciplinary illustrator, graphic designer and artist from Sweden. Available for all sorts of projects and commissions. Currently working as a freelancer with mostly tasks like webdesign and editing, art directiongraphic design, animation, postproduction, social media communication and illustration.

I'm confident in using the Adobe series; mostly Photoshop, InDesign, AfterEffects, Premier Pro and Illustrator. Beyond that, I'm eager to learn new tricks of the trade and in my work I take on tasks that involves facebook ads, front end design, wordpress, programming, design for mobile users, and google analytics + statistics.  

In my work I prioritize sustainable solutions and strategies in, see the sustainability manifesto. For me it is important to work with human rights such as equality for all, post-colonialism and with a normcreative mind. I also believe that art is for, and made by, everyone - not for the elite.
