About four years ago

I don’t think I’ve been to many places as beautiful as Madeira. Of course you find spots here and there but this, it almost felt like the whole Island was fake, built up all pretty to hide something nasty. But no. Its just beautiful. The ocean, every single leaf. So these photos I took about 4 years ago.

Our Paris

Even though Paris is more about red wine and baguettes it felt like we were walking around in a town colored with pink champagne. Don’t know if it was the rush of Fashion week, with vibrant colors, wide smiles and busy streets or something else. But it was a mash up with great architecture, expensive views and old couples feeding the doves. And of course, some ice cream next to musée du Louvre. Hope you’ll enjoy the photos.

Typography

It might seem strange to those who don’t work with graphic design, or any other kind of design for that matter. But a really good font gives me goosebumps. I even asked my teacher in school to give me books and lessons in the art of typography. And that’s how I got my first job at the magazine Nyheter24, for my knowledge in typography. So its very useful to know.

 

So these are a few of my newest favorites! And you can find many more in this great article (also the downloads for the fonts below).

Lost in the studio

So, sorry for being away for ages. I totally got lost in the studio and haven’t done much more than hurting myself with needles (work-wise of course you sick bastard). Making dresses and tons of accessories. Now my biggest problem is – its so freaking out of date with silk/plastic flowers that I’m about to tear this internet-thingy down. Probably just head for IKEA. However, these flowers are a part of my secret plans that I’ve been working on for weeks now and its very exciting. Tell you more within two weeks.

Japan // pt. 2 // The Beauty

What was most striking about Japan was the beauty. Every single straw of grass felt like the most important thing. Like it was of gold. We could pass skyscraper after skyscraper and suddenly stumble upon a huge garden with flowers from another time. And we could travel 2 hours away from Tokyo and find another garden  surrounded by a small forrest with an air so soft to breathe. I’m a big sucker for nature so for me it was overwhelming. Here are a few shots to prove it.

Phottix

Took a long walk with my frencie to Scandinavian Photo to not only find out that my studio lights were all good (thank you) but also some pretty cool macro lenses from Phottix. Just did some test photos and I already love them. You get 4 different lenses (I use them on our NX300 from Samsung) for less than 300 sek. Great deal!

Swedish Horns for SBCA & House of Session

Last thursday Swedish Beauty & Cosmetic Awards were held at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm where they handed out awards for 38 different products. House of Session were in charge of the whole layout of the event + the amazing performances. I had the opportunity to create a piece to be worn by the wonderful Gretchen. It took about 60-75 hours to make, I lost control of the time, and its made out of  mirror-fabric and chicken wire.

Saturday Funday

This weekend we went to the most amazing studio I’ve ever been to. Think Camilla spent some time on the countryside, got some fresh air, came up with about 197 ideas and picked one out. Agnes were behind the camera, me infront, and Cam did the make up and everything else. Hasselblad, chocolate, Fleet running around like a maniac chewing on brushes, loads of coffee and creative ideas. Had almost forgotten how much I love being in the studio, usually behind the camera. Can’t wait to see the result!
