Arpen Magazine

I thought it was about time to upload some of my most recent school projects. I can’t believe I’ve only got one year left at Konstfack and that I’ll soon be a professional graphic designer and illustrator. Yikes! Anyways, let me introduce to you one of my latest school projects:

Arpen Magazine is a fictitious concept for a new magazine looking at games from a different point of view, a view of games as tools for telling and engaging in other people’s stories. The theme of the first issue is Girls Girls Girls and covers stories of female characters in video games, women in gaming and the making video games. Featured on the cover is Max Caufield from the game Life Is Strange. The second issue, I Hate U, covers the so called “GamerGate” and the problem with hateful language in gaming and on the internet.The third issue, Mind Meets Mind, covers empathy and the possibility of understanding other people’s experiences via gaming. Hope you’ll like it!


I decided to take some new photos of me and Erik as soon as I realized that most of my current profile photos on the internet were really old. I’m really into a bright colored eyeliner lately and I think this blue eyeliner looks beautiful. It was a mere coincidence that the eyeliner matched Erik’s blue hair, but in the end I think it turned out great and I really like the overall matchy-matchy theme on these photos.


I’ve been rewatching Moomin and drawing a lot this summer. Vacation at its best! I genuinely think that the combination of doodling and watching a TV-serie or movie that you’ve watched before is the ultimate relaxation. Here’s two Moomin inspired illustrations I drew a couple of weeks ago. Bye!

All My Pals Are Plants Zine

It’s finally here!! Our second zine! Yay! It’s called “All My Pals Are Plants” and it is a riso printed zine created by me and Erik Kirtley, featuring lettering and typographic illustrations by Edwin Beauchamp, Karl-Joel Lrsn, Lucy Sherston, May Kim, Petra Eriksson, Sissela Jensen, Steffen Knöll, and Unni Toivola. The contributions are all interpretations of different house plants. Every poster in the zine is an interpretation of a specific house plant and can be taken out if you’d like to put it up somewhere! Also comes with an A3 poster of the cover.

The zine is printed in an edition of 40. Get it at!

Book Cover | Dandelion Wine

As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, this is the year I design more book covers. The second book cover I wanted redesign was Ray Bradbury’s Dandelion Wine. Ray Bradbury is mostly known for his classic novel Farenheit 451 and his work with science fiction novels, but if you ask me I think Dandelion Wine is my favorite. It’s such a beautiful book, filled with nostalgia and describes in depth the experience of being a child during summer. The cover is inspired by, of course, the dandelions, but also the colour scheme I felt when I read the book. Warm hues, like a summer sunset. I hope you’ll like the redesign, and I’ll be back with a new cover very soon!

Book Cover | Ready Player One

One of my goals this year is to make more book covers. I’m trying to make at least one cover each month, and this is the first cover I did this year! This is my interpretation and book cover for Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. For my cover I’ve taken inspiration from some of the main references mentioned in the book, such as the game Adventure (Atari, 1976) and the “three keys”. (No spoilers, I promise!) The cover flirts a bit with pixel nostalgia, but I’ve tried to give it more of a contemporary feel. Hope you’ll like it!

By the way, follow me on Behance to see more stuff I do!

Bauhaus Archive + Buchstaben Museum

I’m posting at a really slow pace now, but these last months has been intense. I’m really trying to push myself in my creative process this year, which is more time consuming than you’d think. But on the bright side I got a bunch of exciting projects to show you as soon as I’ve photographed and documented them!

In the meanwhile I’ll show you the last photos of my trip to Berlin, and more specific when me and my companions went to the Bauhaus Archive and Buchstaben Museum. Yup, I’m one of those pepz that thoroughly enjoy going to museums when I’m traveling, and most of the time the museum is the main reason that made me go in the first place. So when we arrived at the Bauhaus Archive it was a small dream coming true. In the early 20th century Bauhaus was one of the most influential design schools in Europe and it’s design philosophy made a huge impact on our (in Europe and U.S.A) “modern” definition of “modern design” (Google it!). Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take photos inside the museum, but at least I took some photos of the beautiful main building.

Next up was the Buchstaben Museum, and it was a beau. A whole museum of old neon signs, and some signs reached all the way up to the ceiling. Definitely worth a visit if you like letter signage as much as I do. That is all for now!
