I'm a freelance graphic designer in Oslo / Lillestrøm. My work includes company branding, logo design, visual marketing and print design such as business cards, posters, flyers and brochures. The past two-three years I've been studying design and working with smaller companies and organizations.
How I ended up as a Designer
With my educational background in natural sciences and mathematics I'm a problem solver by nature. I've also worked as a private tutor in maths at UNAK, Oslo which have made me better at communicating ideas. The way I see it, maths and other related subject are very much about creativity in their approach, even though they're typically seen as gray and rigid. Maybe the reason behind this is that the 'maths' taught in schools are often more about calculating and less about math. Conrad Wolfram talks about this in his TED talk Teaching kids real math with computers, and I share many of his views. So, even though I enjoy science related subjects; I wanted my education to be more creative, combining the problem-solving way of thinking from the science world.
I think this may be part of the reason I became more interested in design — Or as one of my teachers would call it: allergic to bad design! I enjoy good design when it reflects something that's great. So, I started teaching myself design and later made it a part of my studies. I've studied Graphic Design at Noroff and at the present I am a student of Interaction Design at UiO along with my work as a freelancer.
