In the new issue of Boligmagsinet you can get a glimpse of our studio – as part of a photoshoot from my studio partner Line’s home. The studio is located in this old and crooked house – but flooded with light. We have decorated it with the help of Line’s handy husband and our creativity – and I just love spending my workdays here. We share the kitchen and meeting area shown here – and my design studio is located on the level above. In the beginning of 2013 we also opened our doors to Line’s business partner and her assistent. So to create some extra space Line is having a sale this weekend. Her first and only sale – with great discounts – for more information look here.
P.S I will not be at the studio during the sale :)

We are hosting a small Pop-UP Christmas market in our studio in Mejlgade 16B, 8000 Århus C. Feel free to pop by!
I feel like playing with the steps going up to my designstudio – and these are some of my favorite ideas from my Pinterest board. Which one is your favorite? Unfortunately there’s not enough space for a slider solution :)
Here are a some fresh snapshots of my studio today – it’s slowly coming together – and the light here is so amazing. I love having my own space – and to turn up the music now and then – I also listen to tons of podcast while working – so please share if you have any recommendations!? The next 3 weeks I’ll spend some days away from the studio while teaching Identity Design at Teko in Herning – and I’m exited to meet the students and to teach again. Also I’m currently working on 3 identity designs for clients, so there´s a great synergy to things which I love.
Blogish! e-magazine is out
Today our secret project went online. It’s an E-magazine created by my group of Danish blogger friends – and designed by me. It´s been a lot of fun and we love to see how fast the word spreads online. You can find the e-mag right here – and our Facebook page here. I’ve always known that blogging is great, but I’d never imagined that it would lead to so many wonderful friendships, with persons I never would have met IRL. So please share it with your own online friends! It´s in Danish only though – but give it a try and enjoy the free downloads inside.
Between all the jobs for clients I’m also working on a secret project with a group of lovely blog-ladies. So today I´ve been playing with type and photo styling – and soon you can see the final result. Have a great weekend. ps. Hyben is the Danish word for Rosehip.
Summer Holidays are here
It’s time for a well deserved summerholiday now – so my studio is closed for a month from today. First stop is Rome and the best pizza in town (thanks for the tip) – followed by some Italian beach life. Afterwards it´s time to relax in our summerhouse – and I’m not complaining. If you crave for a Roman Holiday just go here - I love this new found blog!
Wishing you all a happy and sunny summer – see you in August.
A Room of My Own
I’m wrapping up this week with a small move – but a big step! I’m moving my things upstairs in our studio. So from monday I’ll have a Room of My Own – for the first time since I’ve started running my own design studio. I’m really exited and curious to see how I´ll end up decorating and using the space. Right now it’s a blank canvas more or less – but I plan to fill it with lots of love & creativity – and more time spent away from my Mac. As Virginia Wolf said ‘a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction’ – I’m not planning to write fiction – but I’m very exited to have my own space – and I still have lovely company downstairs where Line and her assistent resides. I’ll show you some after photos when I’m all set. Instagram photo of my little helper :)
Magazine design Workshop
I’m currently teaching a group of nine wonderful and enthusiastic girls the fine art of magazine design. Here´s a peek at the magazine moodboard workshop I taught at my studio last week. Moodboards are such a great way to kick off a creative process – and the girls came up with some promising results. I’m enjoying this teaching experience so much – and look forward to see their final results. Make sure to check out Spagat’s Facebook page or Twitter to see some of the resources I share while teaching.
