This past month has been a busy one – we’ve finished our project for the non-violence foundation, and the end result was a great success, both for us and for them. I’ll update more about this project once I’ve finished organizing all he parts to make it a “whole” project. There was no time for that after the final presentation – we moved straight on to the next part of our final projects. This part is (for me) an individual project where I’ll be branding and doing a web design for my friend Sophies newly started booking company “Bleeding hearts”. They focus on booking country and americana music acts to clubs in Stockholm. I got started on the project last week and it’s really fun to work with. To start out last week I did an analysis of the target groups, and I did some research and mood boarding. This week I’m in the middle of designing their logo, symbol and other graphic guidelines. The challenge in this project is to target the design the right amount. The target group is of course interested in a certain style of design, since it is connected to the music that they listen to. To balance this specific style with simplicity and especially on the web site usability is difficult, but a fun challenge!
Just published a new project in my portfolio. This is actually a project from last semester at Hyper Island. Our client was More Mobile Relations, and we got to work with qr-codes, which was very exiting! Check it out here.
Now we’re moving into the final parts of our education – exiting and scary at the same time! We’ve got a final project divided into two different parts now, and then the internship in November. Crazy how time flies!
Our group got a really exiting client for the first part of this module. ( 7 weeks ) We’re going to work for Non-Violence with their project One Billion Faces for Peace. We are very exited and it feels amazing to get the chance to try to make the world a better place rather than just make a fancy logo.
Here’s a link to our blog – where we’ll share our 7 week journey with the great internetz.
This is a new project that I made with my friend Stina Runesson. She took the photographs and I added my illustration afterwards.
Check it out in my portfolio here.
Really like to do something different, so I think I’m going to start practising this type of illustration a bit more.
Check them out here.
I have also started a new exiting colaboration with my friend Stina Runesson.
This is actually a school project from last semester that I didn’t have the time to finish then. It is my first attempt to do web design totally by myself, and I think the result turned out well!
This was an assignment in school that was about redesigning a web site that you thought needed some freshening up. I chose to work with one of Swedens largest recipe sites – Recept.nu . The site has a lot of good content and is linked with popular TV shows and famous chefs, and they also clearly have an ambition to position themselves in social medias such as Facebook and Twitter. The problem I found was that the content wasn’t organized and the over all impression is overwhelming and cluttered.
I chose to work out a structure for the site, where I collected a lot of the content in a menu below the header to avoid a lot scrolling and to put the focus on images instead of lists and texts. I kept the social media in the side columns to put focus on the interaction with the reader, and used one of the yellow colors from the original site as an accent color to keep the familiar feeling. I did a lot of research before starting to design the site, and the things that I found out was that the target group wanted a simple and clean site where they quickly could find what they were looking for and that they wanted the focus to be on the images. When designing I also took a lot of inspiration from different food blogs.
This project was only for my personal learning and is not connected to the real Recept.nu-site.

All the photographs that I have used are taken by blogger Clara Lidström of UnderbaraClara.
