Trained design professional graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2009.
I'm passionate about strategic design and creative graphic communication, and I love working with design concepts that bind various means and media together. Being structured and analytical with a pragmatic approach while focused on providing quality, enables me to be enterprising and to comply with deadlines. I see myself as a strong, open and an empathic team player.
Working with visual design, colors and graphic systems is a tremendous driving force for me. My professional qualifications stems from my passion for creative design development.
