Concept and design for living products
Good design contains function, communicates, and has a purpose. I've done lots of designs where aesthetics is immediate. However, my designs have other than beauty and colors as an agenda. The aesthetic teases your senses and invites us to the dialogue that the design has in it. I hope you experience my designs like this - whether it is as a craft in gold or it is a concept for functional products that make children predisposed to become healthier adults.

Logo design. Wallpapers. Campaign Concept
I had the honor of being the designer of the Danish Pink Ribbon logo and the campaign “Pink Ribbon 2010″.
As a designer, it is a pleasure to contribute with 3 wallpapers/patterns and the first Danish Pink Ribbon bow.
In my work as a designer I am used to relating to variable products with many different types of surfaces, so designing for the Pink Ribbon campaign stays within my line of work.
I hope that my designs on various Danish products can increase the impact in this year’s campaign.
It has been my desire to get the message “1 out of 9″ communicated in a visual message. Sometimes it is easier to understand statistics when they are transformed into images: 8 healthy sets of breasts and then 1 with a cancerous tumor, illustrated by the bow.
Breasts are called many different names and I asked my 164 Facebook friends for help to come up with some of the many nicknames breasts are called – this gave me some inspiration. In addition I asked for a roundtable at a gentlemen,’s club. It paid off! Because who knows better than men, what wonderful words exist for breasts?
The core of the aesthetic is my handwriting, my personal signature, and my devoted greetings to all those who look after and care for breasts. Here and there the text says “1 out of 9″, because unfortunately, all breasts are in the line-up – also the ‘titties’, ‘the big melons’, ‘the boobs’, ‘the
jugs’ and ‘the hooters’. The message is not meant to create fear, but we must all be aware so that tumors are discovered in time.
Personally, I was 1 out of the 9 who found a tumor, but fortunately, I am a survivor and today I’m perfectly healthy.
I would like you to support the Cancer Society and the Pink Ribbon Campaign 2010, because it is designed to support invaluable research,information, and efforts on breast cancer.
The Ribbon is registered as an NFTartwork and is free to use. You should be welcome to donate to the fight against cancer/support the breasts if you use it. If you would like a pdf file sent, you are welcome.
...through their aesthetics; they must always contribute to the functionality of the holistic solution they are part of. Textile design can rarely be seen as an isolated topic but often operates in close context with another area of design, i.e. fashion-, interior-, room, or object based design.
As a designer I have worked with holistic design. I have made international bestsellers for IKEA. Aestetic I juggle with everything from white tactile collections to multicolored graphic patterns and natural colors. Textiles are surfaces that accompany our lives, Let them speak.
