Making merch is one of the most fun things I ever do; nothing beats seeing something you made on a T-shirt of a random passer-by.
These coffee cups have been in our shop for a little while, but I got new samples sent just now and boy, are they looking good. Go get yours! The photos feature my wonderful Korg Volca Bass as well as my chalkboard full of the secret plans.
I just dug out this logotype I did for Nova a couple years ago and thought it might be worth sharing. They are an interior styling company based in Oslo, you can find them on Instagram!
The concept for the identity stems from the name itself. Nova means sun (or star), so the logotype alludes to a sunrise with the elevated O. They needed to express some measure of vision while maintaining a strict and professional look, so I custom drew the typography in order to hit the right spots.
And yes, I’m available for new clients these days. Let’s talk!
The world biking championships just recently finished putting this city back the way it was before.
One of the projects we had regarding this massive, week-long event, was creating a video mapping for Folkerestauranten, right atop mount Fløyen where the race ends. The credit for this undertaking all goes to Thomas Morel, our resident photographer. Check out the behind-the-scenes video!
Finally I get to show you this; the poster I made for Det Hemmlige Forspielet, which is Deft artists, Brilliance and Red Bull’s big partypalooza.
This was a super fun project (albeit on a very tight schedule) where I get to do what I do best. Looking forward to getting my hands on the actual paper versions soon! I also made an animated version, for Instagram and such.
Just did a really fun interview with the swedish mag The Absorbe, complete with a big mixtape! The mix was recorded (in one take) in my apartment in Bergen, featuring Catty the cat amongst other stars. I put in lots of fun tracks from the local Bergen scene as well as some weird stuff, like the “water theme” from Super mario on Nintendo 64. Check out the full interview here!

I’m glad to announce my first solo sale exhibit it quite some time, this time at Ujevnt, in Bergen! Come hang out one day, the exhibit will be up for a whole month. On display are mostly new projects, some that haven’t even made it to the webshop yet!
I also made a playlist for the opening, filled with a whole lot of new gems I’ve found lately. Subscribe in Spotify!
My largest resolution going forward is helping to make clubbing more into the safe space it’s supposed to be.
In my life, dance music clubs has been my no.1 “Safe Space”, where I go to be with other people in joy and artistic inspiration, where everyone’s friends, if only for the evening. Where any dance move is cool, where your only authority is the thunderous bass, and you check any greviance at the door.
I’ll readily admit; getting excited enough about a cabinet to blog about them is a mark of a special kind of design nut. Or maybe I’m just magnificently releaved to finally have some organisation of my ten years of poster design. Poster cabinet units like these usually get snatched up instantly when they appear in auctions, so I feel particularly lucky to get some that did’nt come with a ten-fold price hike due to being “vintage” or whatever they call old these days. Organising and storing fancy posters like these, that get deemed unsellable if they aquire the smallest crease, is hard enough when they are regular-sized. But now these 90x70cm ones will be a pain in my ass no more!
Most of the posters you see in these photos are available in the Shop still, so go have a look! (more…)
