Hej! My name is Louise. A graphic designer, Brand Designer, and Art Director. I’m a great gal who likes to travel the world, get out in nature, and jump into ice cold water. I create expressive and ambitious visual concepts within the fields of branding, packaging, typography, still life photography, events, print design and digital environments for small and big businesses.

I am curious and solution-oriented and have a passion for function, aesthetics, and visual narratives. My desire is to make designs that engage, challenge and aim to trigger both ︎ and ︎.

My working process is thorough, open-minded, and hands-on. To me, every project is an opportunity to experiment while simultaneously using my broad experience from a wide range of industries.

I believe that idea-conducive communication founded in research, insights, and a strong concept is the key to effective solutions. My designs are always based on playful as well as rational thinking but not limited to a single style.

Currently based in Copenhagen but I will happily go wherever the right jobs take me! ︎
