Exhibit design at the Bergen official Library

Turn on Literature is an exhibit showcasing 18 works in electronic literature; apps, websites and other weird ways of pushing the boundaries on how we consume stories.

I designed the exhibit, including the programme, posters, and signage. You can check out everything at the Bergen Official Library, opening this Saturday!

Video for our project at Fløyen

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!

Poster for Det Hemmelige Vorspielet

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.

Solo sale exhibit + playlist

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!

Clubland anno 2017

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.

An ode to poster cabinets

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…)

Let’s Breathe

Seems the clearest way for me to implement my ideas is simply making them into merch. The continuing battle of inclusiveness and diversity in club culture is worthy of a helluva lot more than a cup. But then again, how else would you let your cupboard know where you stand on political issues? Next time you invite a date in for coffee, you can let them know you are WOKE AF with every sip.

And this way, I’m putting my mind-fingers on you both when dancing in the wee hours of the night, as well as for breakfast the next morning. I’m turning this creepy without even trying.

CHECK OUT THE MUG IN THE SHOP. IT’S NOT EVEN EXPENSIVE AT ALL YO.

Jacob’s Julesmudi 2016

I’ve whipped up a playlist for all of you people that will flip out the next time someone plays “Jingle Bells” in your general vicinity, but still has hope for a peaceful, joyous holiday season. Ho ho ho. Don’t murder anyone. Tell them to put this playlist on instead. IT HAS NO CHRISTMAS MUSIC. But it’s still jolly as balls.

I’ll be adding to it as the yuletide grown near, so subscribe now and worry not.
