visual communication for organ donation
'Hjertemod' means 'heartcourage' and is a selfmade word to embrace and celebrate the collision between a corny grandmother-universe (patchwork and cross stitches) and a rough sailer universe (tattoo); in other words: the soft human in a hard shell. It's a word carefully chosen to emphasize that it takes both courage and empathy to sign up as an organ donor.

The Black book of Kashmir
“To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest”
A tribute to the danish rock-band Kashmir in the event of their 20th anniversary.
I am a hugeKashmir (danish rock-band) Kashmir fan, and decided to do a spare-time project based upon the band and their music, and give it to them on their 20th anniversary as a band.
The result became this book/CD-cover which is a collection of songs by the band made into black-ink drawings. Each song was inspired by the abstract, energized and often melancholic imagenary of the lyrics and music. Kasper Eistrup, the leadsinger is also an artist and illustrator, and his work has been a great source of inspiration as well.
The essence of the project was to transform music into pictures!

Danish Entrepreneurship Award 2012
MICRO IDENTITY FOR DANISH ENTREPRENEURSHIP AWARD 2012
I entered a national poster competition held by Young Enterprise. The simple assignment was to create a poster for their annual event called Danish Entrepreneaurship Award, which is a event where schools, academies and universities are invited to attend and celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship in various categories. The poster had to had connections to Young Enterprises' existing identity in terms of color etc. The winner would be awarded with a money prize, a design award and the opportunity to apply ones design to the entire events and its merchandise. I ended up winning the competition, and my original poster design became the micro identity for the award show anno 2012. The event became a huge succes, with 5000 participants, pre schoolers to university students, from schools all over the country.
My design was inspired by the wondering mind of entrepreneurs and innovators. They are able to stay curious, always thinking of new ways to improve the world and dream of the future. My design is what I would call a graphical collage of messy aesthetics. Bits and pieces of images, symbols and silhuets are brought together in a simple style to create a small univers that celebrates dreaming and reaching for the stars.
