Front & Center – Zine 1 of 20

Front & Center is a personal project zine showcasing photography from everyday life. The title of the project tells the story of a self–realization of the nature of the photographic work in involved – that it tends to always put the subject “front and center”. By centering typography both on the front, back and spine the cover aims to confront itself with the question of what is really front and center on a publication such as this – thereby contradicting and questioning the title itself. The zine is printed in 2018 in a limited 10 copies.

Calculated Coin Flips – Poster 1 of 4

Calculated Coin Flips by Minh Ngoc Nguyen explores the playing field and boundaries between analogue photographs and computer-generated imagery.

 

The identity for the exhibition is based on a grid – an underlying basic structure in graphic design. The imagery is placed within the grid as a manipulative factor bending the text according to its position. It thereby tells a story about manipulation taking a visually direct approach to Minh’s work that centers around the very idea of whether or not an image is manipulated or not.

 

The exhibition ran at Gallery Rotor 2 in Gothenburg, Sweden between March 23–26 2018.

ZUSA – Book design 1 of 7

Zusa is a Copenhagen street art phenomenon that can be seen throughout the various neighbourhoods of the city. Zusa is short for “zusammen” which translates to “together” in German and stems from Zusa being made by a collective directed by Anders Thordahl – one of the pioneers of danish graffiti. I did the editorial design for the book while interning at Spine Studio.

Third World – Identity 1 of 6

Third World is a Copenhagen based clothing brand. The brand’s bold logotype aims to portray a sense of granditude that matches the word “World”. The second logo “(3)” uses brackets as way of communicating the brand as being “other” and “not a part of the crowd” while simultaneously resembling the curvature of a globe.

 

Besides doing the branding for Third World Funch Studio is also responsible for various textile prints.

Plakat Workshop – Teaching 1 of 4

A course at The Scandinavian Designcollage (Den Skandinaviske Designhøjskole) teaching visual communication and research with poster design as the output.

 

In order to spark the student’s interest in the course we created a small visual identity for the workshop. The identity is taking it’s visual language from one of the core lessons taught in the course; the idea of trying out unknown compositions by breaking up typography randomly. This lesson is a way of teaching the students that you don’t know if something works before you have tried it.

Schou Traeservice 1 of 4

Schou Traeservice is a wood cutting company. The company’s business cards plays with the action of cutting or separating something – thereby telling the story of the main objective of a wood cutter. Furthermore the edges of the cards draw parallels to the rough edge found on the blade of a chainsaw.

Topbjerg Cykler – Posters 1 of 3
Topbjerg Cykler – Identity 1 of 3

Mini identity for a bicycle shop in Copenhagen. The aim of the identity was to portray the DIY-ish atmosphere that is present in the shop. The posters and flyers were therefore put together made from various cut-outs.

 

The result was a fun, colourful visual identity where the shop owners could simply photocopy what they needed on multi-coloured paper. Thereby giving them a cheap way of producing advertisement which was a key objective.
