2017 • I've finally discovered a program that reconciled me with 3D and I think I might have find a new passion! So I went and modelled a few objects I found in the house, starting with these perfume bottles. I'll add more renderings like these in the next few weeks, so watch this space!

2017 • This is a concept project about a group called WRS. The company has three subsidiaries: WRS Graphics, WRS Technics and WRS Premium. Each company has its own differentiated sub-brand that form the global brand. I tried to design as many brand elements as possible, ranging from websites and app icons to business cards and PowerPoint templates.

2013 • Glittertind's brand new album, Djevelsvart ("Devil Black"), has hit Norway hard. These young guys really know how to write music and you should definitely listen to their new master piece of soulful, folkish rock. I had the joy and opportunity to once again create the layout for the CD, vinyl and iTunes versions of the album. The amazingly beautiful cover artwork itself was done by Linda K. Røed and I expanded on her work to create the rest of the whole package. The theme of the album is the unsettling existential questions raised by the second industrial revolution of the late 19th century and the rise of individualism and the waning of religion in the growing cities.

2010 • This is a font inspired by the noble tradition of gothic blackletters. Bold and strong like a German tank! Undoubtedly difficult to use in this day and age but download it and give it a try. I included many special characters and accents so that the font works in many languages written in the latin script. The use of this font is entirely free of charge, the only thing I ask is that you send me a screenshot of the project in which you used the font!
2009 • This font was originally designed to adorn the booklet of Glittertind's Landkjenning album of which you'll find examples above. The family is inspired by the runic rock carvings of Scandinavia and consisting of three fonts: a regular version, a version bound by lines and finally a set of "figureheads", decorations destined to be used to start and end lines of words Viking style (see examples). The use of this font is entirely free of charge, the only thing I ask is that you send me a screenshot of the project in which you used the font!

2002–2003 • These are the artworks for Swiss death metal mob Amok's first two EPs. Hephaistos' theme is inspired by the Greek god of metallurgy who builds mighty weapons and artefacts for the gods of Olympus in his forge, deep down under a volcano. In another style, I found the title "Necrosapiens" quite inspiring too!
