The illustration work here is to display what I am capable of. I typically sketch ideas out on paper before I start working digitally. I find these intriguing enough to show and exemplary of my abilities and efforts.
Varied work samples
This was part of my identity work as evnh. I represented myself as someone multi-layered and abstract.
Some process for my identity work as evnh. This is a techquipu, a portmanteau of technology and quipus (also known as talking knots).
I am able to do more freeform logotypes for events.
I am also able to do design work that includes font play.
Some of my brainstorming for a logo concerning a “city in the sky”.
One of the mockups made to see how things look. The logotype was for a startup called Dreamperium.
This was for a friend. The name is from a Norwegian black metal band of the same name, and references were used to inspire this ambigram design.
These are samples of fonts I have created. Most are handwritten.
ConceptX, Future of Biking
For this event I was tasked with documenting what happened in the form of illustrations. It was an event that took place over the weekend at Lund Innovation Center at Lund University. Read more about it on their website.
With each page I attempted to describe at least two-three things which happened.
Use of graphics / icons were key in making these images more easily understood.
While having too much text to describe certain instances, I would find ways to section and break parts away.
Results may be important but documenting meals (for example) also brings and shows positive experiences into view.
Here I highlight the passage of time a little. It may have been a 24hr event, but it took place over two days.
While describing certain instances, having too many parts will be disruptive. Here I opted to not use panels for sequential drawings.
Describing the different projects required finding good graphics that could help describe each situation well.
Using jagged edges speech bubbles helped make each project distinguishable from the rest. Rounded bubbles may not have easily done this.
As I documented the ideas rather thoroughly the previous two pages, I only needed to describe the setting and situation here.
This page is mostly to show the experiences had at the end of the event.
I had some notes scribbled and it dawned on me that I could create simple infographics which may be printed out as a reference and a way to quickly be familiar with the software again. I used an OFL font called TitilliumText for the text. You can download printable versions.
This was a poster I created for the Global Game Jam event from our own initiative.
I helped create an award which could easily be printed out using only black ink.

This should give an idea of the amount of detail I have put in. Most of the typefaces are handmade by me to suit the board.
Here is an example of the preparation made the day before for the board.
