Introducing | The Weekly Creative Brunch

Living the freelance life can often be a solitary one. I usually work from my home studio and in order to get feedback and ideas my interactions usually come from a screen. Don’t get me wrong this can be really fulfilling, especially as a self-confirmed introvert; this can help to focus my ideas and get …

Organic Beauty Queens

7 Days and 7 editorial! Last week was Organic Beauty Week. As a result Volt kept me very busy. I was (of course) happy to oblige and got into a creative flow to create different looks for each story. The editorials vary greatly in mood, theme and appearance, however all focussing upon beauty in a …

Cheating on Fall with Autumn

Living abroad (from the UK) I often hear Norwegian using American words over the English. I cannot blame them with most television programs and films coming from the US. Although I cannot help but chuckle every time my boyfriend asks if his socks match his ‘pants’ (in UK we would say ‘Trousers’). ‘Fall’ and ‘Autumn’ …

Volt magazine, quickly caught my eye. Printed to B1 size, Volt is hard not to notice. Designed with …

Spotlight On // Alexey Brodovitch

In order to create modern masterpieces or even to simple covering every new blank page, it is important to look to the past for inspiration. Alexey Brodovitch was one of those artists that created timeless work that even look modern and unusual to fresh twenty first century eyes, although his art was created over half …

Between the Lines | Januarys Collection

As time passes I become more and more disinterested with spending alone time with the television. I like watching a film with someone or an occasional tv program but I always become to restless to sit still and not do something at the same time.

Design to Print | Business cards that do all the talking

If you happen to follow me on social media (all the biggies Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) you will have seen that on Monday afternoon I came home to a gift in the mail. A gift from me to me, the best kind! Inside the cardboard box (featuring a sticker reading ‘Yay!’) was another box with a …
