IKEA Communications AB retouch artist // hired for projects
I am retouching pictures you can see online, in print material, and on billboards. I am tuning 3D renders, adding and removing parts of photographs, correcting colours, adjusting shadows and lights, and adapting room sets for different markets by mixing photos with 3D renders. This year I am part of the team that produces the 2016 IKEA catalogue, the world’s largest commercial print publication. I work together with a team of image producers, art directors, photographers and interior designers to solve any production challenges in an efficient way.
Freelancer graphic designer
I am designing both print and digital materials, such as posters, layouts, brand identity, logos, apps and web pages. I am using all my skills I need to be able to handle a project from freehand sketching, though Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, to the printers or to the programmers. As working with different materials I keep track on the production also.

I was working with local print and web, like brochure and clips for Germany, helping out with chinese brochures and preparing online materials.

MAC OS & Adobe
I am working on MAC OS for 9 years now, but I can improvise successfully on any kind of operating system or programs. I am an expert in Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
I keep myself up to date, and if something comes up that is new for me, all I say: give me an hour or two!
Passive knowledge on German
Swedish and Danish in progress
I am passionate
I started designing things to look good as my hobby. Today it is my job. Sometimes I choose another restaurant, if the menu or the logo is poorly designed, because this can mean the owner doesn’t pay attention to quality.
I am enthusiastic
During my travels I always end up shooting bookcovers, packaging, signage systems on the station, or signs in a museum.
I think critically
I always keep asking why, and what if. I believe this way I can avoid most of the problems that could appear.
I am curious
Like to experiment and analyse things to understand and learn more.
