Bygglotsen Husarö is a carpenter company based in the Stockholm archipelago. The typography is inspired by the letters on boats in the area.
All typography is custom made.
Based in the archiapelago, made up by smaller island communities, it felt important to stay within tradition.
There is also a great sense of local pride in the area, so it felt important to push the name of the island hierarchically.
Role: Graphic Designer Agency: Area MG For: Washstop Scandinavia
Branding / Typography / App / Stationary
Washstop is a eco friendly car wash. I was asked to design a full graphic profile, stationary, business cards, wash stations including pay stations, and their app.

ABBA - Thank you for the music
Role: Creative / Art Director / Graphic Designer Agency: Universal Music Creative Labs For: Polar Music Together with Mia Segolson.
In celebration of ABBA’s 40th anniversary their fans still adored them. The problem was that the ABBAs are next to impossible for the fans to reach. I wanted to bridge that gap through a giant greeting card.
So we set up a site, and a signing station at the museum, were fans could write their greetings which then would be sent to a printer at display at ABBA The Museum.
When the campaign ended the greetings were made into four books, given, as a surprise, to each of the members of ABBA.
Both the fans and the members loved the campaign with 10 000+ greetings from more than 70 countries filling 680 pages.

Blade Runner is one of my favourite movies of all time and in part this is my loveletter to it.
It’s the first movie to ever make me question my thoughts on artificial intelligence. Where we draw the line for what life is and what it isn’t.
The question of the soul and the subjugation of the things we precieve to be without it.
With thousands of vector tear drops, drawn one by one, we built the face of Rachael Tyrell from the 1982 classic Blade Runner. Printed on matte paper.
The deep red lips represent the role of Rachael as the question of love and sexuality.
The tears represent her sadness of being questioned as a sentient entity and also a nod to the Rutger Hauer monologue: “I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.“
All typography is custom made.

Verionica Maggio - Ayahuasca
Role: Art Director With: Daniel Åberg & Ted Criborn Agency: Universal Music / Creative Labs For: Veronica Maggio
Veronica Maggio is a Swedish artist famous for her unique lyrics and storytelling. For the release of the song Ayahuasca we made a little game.
To identify 97 words and place them in the right order. Everyone has one guess each.
The site allowed the vocal track to be added in dynamically with each guess. Everyone could see each others guesses in real time.
When they completed the challenge the song would instantaneously be released on Spotify.
At the end of the campaign the final word had 838 guesses, before a 15 year old girl from Gothenburg solved the final word “Sufletten” and unlocked the song on Spotify.
Developed the full concept together with Daniel Åberg & Ted Criborn. It was first realized after me leaving Universal Music.
Designed by Daniel Åberg.

ABBA - Lyric Posters
Role: Art Director / Graphic Designer Agency: Universal Music Creative Labs For: Polar Music
During ABBA's 40th Anniversary I was asked to interpret ABBA lyrics typographically.
Printed on fine paper, UV coated, and sold at ABBA the Museum and webstore.
Badvice Official was a ‘motivational’ Instagram account on which I posted proverbs I completely disagree with.
I hope you don't like it.
I wanted to play with what we percieve as deep and profound thought.
More specifically on a surface centered platform (Instagram) where pretending often is seen equal to doing.
I wrote, designed and posted 111 grams under a period of two months.
I find it very interesting how we, as designers, can make things look and seem more real than they really are.
In a sense the power we’re given when surface is king. No matter the content.

Everything that happened inside the car was recorded and edited to become the official music video.

Role: Art Director / Graphic Designer Photographer: Johan Schmetzer Agency: Rithuset For: Shadi G / Goldamin Records
Shadi G is a electropop artist / producer out of Gotherburg, Sweden.
On the cover for the single 'Where we go' I wanted to translate the sense of floating wounder I got from hearing the song.
I chose to put Shadi inside a spacesuit. Face lit with intricate lighting. Using her face and expression to show that she's watching something wonderful and dreamlike. This something reflecting on her visor.
Audio Self Portrait
Role: Art Director / Graphic Designer For: Personal project
Self protrait made by my voice recorded, drawn and arranged.
I wanted to make a self portrait that shared something different than an enterpretation of my physical being.
There are many things that I feel make me who I am. What I look like have little to do with that. It’s also something I can’t control.
What I can control is what I have to say. So I recorded myself, drew the soundwaves created and arranged them on a 50x70 poster, printed on matte paper.
