New York / Copenhagen

My design practice is NYC based and specializes in visual identities; offering creative direction, graphic design and branding. Motion and rhythm is an integral part of my approach to developing identity systems, often with an elevated focus on typography and tool making.

I’m born in Copenhagen and hold an MFA from Yale and a BA from The Danish School of Media and Journalism. My professional background is working in multidisciplinary teams doing research-based strategic design and branding. My interest in technology is married to how I understand the world at large, leading to an array of autonomous projects like short films, publications and installations.

My counter thesis to conventional truth-seeking is to look outside what is real, at the unreal or the unfathomable. Filtering out reality has the potential to become an antidote to various types of blindness to the world. Sieving implies removal, but it is also entails revealing, investigating or analyzing – like looking under a rock that you’ve never before lifted. One world becomes two new worlds. And upon return what before seemed real may now appear alien and stripped of the meaning it used to have, but with previously unseen prospects of significance or understanding. Filtering out reality should perhaps be understood more as filtering in reality, since what passes through a sieve is a condensed selection of the original input.
