Catalogue of Life


For my graduation project I assembled a 272 page book in which I gathered all the objects from my life and categorised them. Next to every object, relevant data was displayed. Because of the graphic heavy content the cover was kept very simple. By using mirror foil the viewer can see his/her own face on the cover and might make him/her wonder about differences and similarities between his/her and my own life.

P. S.


A book designed to reflect on secrets of the story. Commentary by the author, explanation and annotation of illustrations are printed with UV ink, which is only visible under UV light. The binding is designed in a way that the attached UV-lamp could fit inside the book, but at the same time it can be removed and used to explore hidden messages.

Won a Red Dot Design Award and For Print Only Award in 2014.
Been featured in several design publications.

Islands Brygge


Typeface inspired by the neighborhood called Islands Brygge in Copenhagen. The angular cuts show a play of light and shadow as the type appears in space.

Graphic Design: Marton Borzak




Mechanical Insects


A poster series illustrating the idea when insects went extinct and men replaced them with artificial ones. The series displays the blueprints of the insects with information nuggets spread around on the poster. Silkscreened with two colors on black stock in a limited run and sent as a gift to my clients.

Been featured in several design publications.
Please email me if you'd like a copy.

Also a wide range of materials were made throughout the project like the corporate stationery and vehicles.
