I am currently playing around with the idea of my own small little Graphic Design firm, a sole proprietorships. So at the moment I am working and sketching some ideas for a logo/brand, and I've been thinking of "Wolf&Moon Design", just an idea but I must admit that I like the look of it:

These are the results of a final exam I had at SBCC. We got to choose 2 out of 6 book-titles, and we had only a couple of hours to take photos that were going to be motives for the book-cover. We didn't get the chance to bring props from home, so we had to improvise at school. The titles I chose were:
"Detective Don Melody", and "Quantum Physics":
These pictures are not retouched, they are made in-camera, the only thing added are the text and titles. The rest is made with light and bulb-settings.
Back in 2012 I studied Graphic Design and in my sparetime I worked at a restaurant as a waitress.
The Restaurant had just gotten new owners by the time I started, and we'd also gotten a new chef with a new plan for the menu, so I decided I wanted to take the task of redesigning the menu so it would fit the restaurants image.
This are the results:
The owner wanted to keep the old restaurants name - "Hydranten", and logo, but I decided to refresh the logo up a bit too. My boss wanted the menu to look a bit tough, but elegant at the same time. The restaurant had good quality food, and we wanted the menu to attract both men and women, all ages.
And I also made a poster to hang at school for the student to get some discount:
One of my favorite things to do in design is designing layouts for websites, I love how the look of the website is gonna draw you in, but at the same time be user-friendly and descriptive for the theme of the site.
In my webdesign-class we were challenged to improve an already existing website for a wine-company. So the picture above is what I've designed, and the picture below was/is the originale website:
My beautiful, creative friend Sarah had made a really adorable mermaide-costume for Halloween. So I felt like taking advantage of that, and we went down to Santa Claus beach to have some fun with the camera.
So back in my hometown we have a really cute café/diner called Fairytale cupcakes. And back in 2013 me and my best friend went there, and it's such a nice place and really good food, and incredible cupcakes (hence the name). But the only thing that bothered me was the logo and the menu-design, I didn't feel like it was fitting with the place.
This is the old logo:
We got a menu-design project in my Publication design-class at SBCC, so I took the opportunity to approach this menu that bothered me. And lucky for me, we were allowed to go a little bit crazy, so I even made it pop-up style!
Something I really got to learn when I studied photography is the importance of light. I already knew it was important from earlier on, but in my photo-class I got to understand SO much more! All the things you could do with the light, it's truly fascinating. Here is a pretty normal portrait, the drama-department came to our class to get their headshot taken. I think this one turned out pretty cool!
"Dada (/ˈdɑːdɑː/) or Dadaism was a form of artistic anarchy born out of disgust for the social, political and cultural values of the time. It embraced elements of art, music, poetry, theatre, dance and politics."
This image is open to different kinds of interpretations, but my idea behind this might be the already obvious;
It is about the pain some people go through at all costs to give the best impression of ourselfs to others. This leads to both physical and psychological suffering.
When I first came to Santa Barbara City College, one of our first tasks was to make a creative selfportrait. I decided I wanted to express the feeling I had at the time, the excitement to travel across the world by myself, single and alone for the first time. And ending up at this beautiful place: Santa Barbara, California.
