Side Projects

2007
Concert Photography Network at LiveShot

With a love for music and photography, I established the concert photography network LiveShot in 2007. I have been taking pictures for magazines such as Undertoner.dk and several other news outlets in the Nordics.

My photos have been used as cover artwork by bands such as The Raveonettes "Sometimes they drop by"​ and C.V Jørgensen "Sange fra scenen".

Awards

2018

Nykredit is one of Denmark’s largest banks and mortgage providers, and, as part of an upcoming public offering, it needed to re-establish its position in the market. With an ambitious digital transformation journey in mind, the new corporate design presents the bank as a service company which is geared to the future. The re-brand is based on the brand idea “one dimension richer”. In order to simplify, sharpen and systematise the brand DNA, new assets were integrated which were able to differentiate the bank visually and inject some life and wit into its communication across branches, social media, the website and the mobile banking app suite.
