I'm a highly experienced graphic designer born in Denmark and now living and working in London. I've been designing book covers for ten years and film posters even longer. I aim to get to the core of a project and produce work that is memorable. I am flexible, innovative and take delight in the details that create outstanding book covers.
I've always been fascinated by books and their covers and love every opportunity to work on them. I love the creative challenge of distilling everything into one image. Something to relish as a designer.
About me… I am lucky enough to work in my studio at the bottom of a surprisingly peaceful North London suburban garden. When not working, I enjoy photography, being outdoors and, of course, browsing in bookshops!
"Great designer, highly recommended for film posters and book covers."
Martin Wagner, author of "Deutschland" and director of "The Agent".
I produce work for a diverse range of clients, including companies from publishing, film marketing, fashion and corporate.
