[ Profile ]


僕はグラフィックデザインとイラストレーションのミックスのような作品を作っています。それぞれを切り離したくはなく、それによって新しいものを作れればと思っています。たとえばテキストをイラストとして扱うなどなど。
グラフィックを作るようになったのは、住んでいた町でクラブをやっていた友人のためで、自分が音楽を作れないなと感じてから始めました。もちろん背景には音楽があって、いまも音楽関連の仕事は多いです。CDジャケット、レコードカバー、ポスター、フライヤー、Tシャツなど。今までのクライアントではJunior Senior, Universal records, Atlantic records, Pie Books、そして多くのインディペンデントな人たち、たとえば Wood Wood, Brus, CMYK 2005, Moshi Moshi records, Ubiquity recordsなどがいます。
大きなグラフィックやロゴ、そして自分のパッケージングデザインなど多くのことをやろうとしています。最近ではアニメーションの制作もやっていて、"Nothing AM"という作品でビリニュス (リトアニアの首都)のNextFestivalを受賞しました。
僕が通っていた学校のことをちょっと書くと、RMI Berghs (ストックホルム, 1999), Stockholm Art School (ストックホルム, 1999-2000), Denmark Design School (コペンハーゲン 2000-2005), London College of Communication (2003-2004)です。そしてフリーランスとして始めてからは3年になりました。


I do some kind of mix in between graphic design and illustration, I don't want to exclude the one from the other and often that can bring something extra to it. Treating text as illustration and so on.
I started to make graphics for my friends clubs in the area of my hometown after concluding that I didn't really could make music. Now things ended up bigger than that but music is my background and also the field I have been most involved in. Making CD-jackets, record-covers, posters/flyers and t-shirts for people as Junior Senior, Universal records, Atlantic records, Pie Books and a big bunch of independent people like Lo-Fi-FNK, Wood Wood, Brus, CMYK 2005, Moshi Moshi records, Ubiquity records.
My competence range from bigger graphic profiles and logos to more freestyle graphics for t-shirts and CD-jackets, and developing my own packaging. I am also working with animation and earlier this year I won a price for my piece "Nothing AM" at Next Festival in Vilnius.
My studies took place at RMI Berghs (Stockholm, 1999), Stockholm Art School (Stockholm, 1999-2000), Denmark Design School (Copenhagen 2000-2005), London College of Communication (2003-2004). I have been working freelance for the last three years.

*MUSIC

[ Wiley ]
If I have a idol it's Wiley and he is the only producer that push his sound from dubplate to dubplate, month by month.

[ DJ Target/Danny Weed ]
Harmonies, rawness, harmonicas and frenzy that never stop to surprise, 2006 look big for them.

[ DJ Youngsta/Task ]
The funniest team on road and great for late nights.

[ Newham Generals ]
Best out of E-7.

*FILM

[ 12angry men ]
Lately I am totally in love with this era of Hollywood movies, the 20's to the 40's, brilliant.

[ Dr Strangelove ]
Kubrick on a joke ting.

[Night on Earth ]
Jim Jarmusch and silent humour in Finland.

[ All the Presidents Men ]
The last film I saw and a great one, not on top 5 really but I love political dramas/thrillers from the 70's, can't be done like that these days, if not even Sydney Pollack can do it, no one can.

La Haine
nice one.

*PLACEorCITY

Ekstugan/Smaland/Sweden
My now gone grandparents house, surrounded by deep forest, a place to rest at.

Meguro/Tokyo/Japan
My home since July 2005 and a place that I really like, never expected to have wild animals around me here.

Borl nge/Sweden
The home for my first 18 years and hard to get around, feel disconnected with the place these days but made many treehouses there.

East London/UK
I miss it quite often, London is almost too easy to appriciate, wasn't too active while stying there but still I had some of the greatest time in my life.
