I

A Danish Art Director located in Sydney with an increased interest in graphic design. An Art Director who did things in a somewhat unusual way.

I was fortunate enough to work at the design agency Zago in New York City for six months. Afterwards I finished my bachelor's degree in Visual Communication and became a Junior Art Director at envision Advertising Agency in Denmark. Sixteen months later, I went from Junior to Art Director. I completed my master's degree in Creative Advertising in Australia. Joy Agency offered me an internship in Sydney, which turned into a full-time position. In 2018 I graduated from Award School in Sydney but unfortunately didn't make it to Top Ten.



I once spent eight months in the mountains of Northern Italy and another five months on an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Twice I've been to Cannes Lions, the International Festival of Creativity, but never brought home a lion. It is a professional goal for me to one day do so. With regards to my view on time, creativity and prioritising, I've published a couple of articles on Medium. Feel free to read them by clicking here.



Overall, great ideas can change sales and sometimes much more than that. I'm striving to one day be able to use my creative skill set to improve someone's life for the better.
