Strategy, concept and visual identity for The Royal Danish Theatre. In my MA Project at The Royal Danish Academy of Design, I worked around an issue concerning how The Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen can optimize and be more of a attractive choice of entertainment for young people between 18 and 30 years old.

Through an investigation and analysis of the target group, theatre and the current entertainment culture in Denmark, I developed a visual universe and communication platform called KGLUNG (KGL-YOUNG) aimed at a young audience. My goal was to design a campaign for the different deparments of the theatre taking off the fancy and pompous side of the theatre and instead showing an honest, young and sensual side of the institution that the young audience can relate to.

Visual idetity and concept design of Det andet sted (The Other place) - a retrospective book and memorial about Copenhagen Music Theatre’s (KMT) wild, passionated and eventful journey throughout the last 25 years of existence. This book-magazine was made in collaboration with designer Hanne Cassim while working at Essensen Design Studio.






Art Direction and concept design for The Royal Danish Theatre. This project was a part of my MA Thesis. My focus was to develop and create an identity and concept for young people visiting the theatre. I created the KGLYOUNG identity working with a photographic focus.  

These specific images showcase my design for a ballet performance called Midsummer Night’s Dream and and an acting performance called Hamlet. The designs are implemented on web, posters and folders.





Visual Identity and concept design. Visual Identity, concept development and implementation of a biking campaign for Copenhagen Commune. This project is made to encourgae citizens in Copenhagen to ride the bike to work and this way, promote a healthy life style and limit the amount of cars in the inner city. In this project, I was a part of a team of 3 designers working across layout, logo design, info graphics and icon design.  





Vector Illustration and layout. Character illustration and postcard layout for the Danish organisation, Ældresagen. During this project, I collaborated with designer Hanne Cassim at Essensen Design Studio, Copenhagen.
