Hi, I’m Jacob.

On this site, I blog about thoughts on the design field, show you the stuff I make, and try to discuss both our business and our art. I also maintain an online store, where you can find limited edition prints, magazines and other things I’ve been part of.

Currently, I’m running this small studio under my own name, as well as working on various art projects and music. I also do speaking engagements, so feel free to get in touch about anything.

You can read an interview I did with Grafill right here (in Norwegian) if you like to get deep.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch! You can reach me at hei (at) jacoblysgaard.com.
