My main concern is with visualizing information by creating strong pictographic images. Effective communication is combined with a playful and imaginative quality. Images can range from simple pictograms to elaborate illustrations and can be applied in corporate contexts (brochures, campaigns, annual reports, websites) as well as editorial contexts (magazines, books).

> Pictogram design
> Illustration design
> Identity design

All projects come about in close cooperation with the client. The style used varies for each project and is determined by its character. The focus however is always on creating an outspoken identity. My main concern is with projects that require a concept or whereby an existing concept can be followed. Images can be made to fit with specific visual identity-requirements.
