Poster and CD cover for the Oslo based rap group Herreløse an their Viking tune.
Work was mostly done as a digital painting i Photoshop using icy artic colors.
Film is a video diary perspective from the life of a heroin user in Oslo.
Magnus Lilleberg takes you on a intimate journey into his everyday life as a heroin addict in the capital of Norway. He films himself with his hand-held camera and he describes a tough reality without demanding compassion in return.
Poster was created using a mixture of photo manipulation and digital painting in Photoshop.
Font for the Title «Magnus» is created from Magnus Lillebergs own handwritten signature.
The buildings depicted on the poster are taken from areas in Oslo were Magnus and other addicts usually meet.
Nico D is a french/norwegian reggae artist based in Oslo Norway.
I wanted to make a cover that represented the mix-tape and his background.
The layout shows 4 turntables that feed into a mixtape at the bottom. On the top 2 turntables there are 2 icons depicted to represent the artists roots. The holmenkollen ski jump in Oslo and the eifel tower in paris.
The overall layout builds on text over the portrait that resembles a crown and design elements around the portrait that are influenced by africa, reggae and music in general.
After sketching I layed out the design in illustrator.
Finally I did the finnishing touches in photoshop to give the artwork a worn down/rusty look.
For the characters I only used solid black and Purple to highlight the main features.
Background is made up of several transparent irregular shapes to give a dynamic feel that moves in the opposite direction of the musicians. This helped gain the Jazzy feel I was lookng for.
Finally I added the illustration from illiustrator to a basic layout in indesign to get correct allignment for the text and imagery. From Indesign the poster is prepared for print with the correct values of bleed and colors.
This was a competition entry for a new wine label and logo. Keywords were: siren, mermaid, feminine, figure, classic. I attempted to make a logo that represented classy feminine curves without being too raunchy. I wanted to make a abstract design that still resembled a mermaid without using too much detail. the label was only a mock up to show how the logo would look like on a bottle.
Logo has later been sold to a osmetics company.
New logo for a website dedicated to to showcase products made by smaller companies from the Americas and Europe that make people less reliant on government and big corporations.
Inspiration for the logo is based on Vytis a king knight from Lithuania. Logo is meant to convey the idea of independence, strenght and resistance.
Decided to let the leaf go for the final version as it gave it a cleaner look.
