My name is Monika, and I’m a 23-year old designer from Norway, currently based in England. I’m into all things design, on-screen or print. The last years I’ve spent studying graphic design, working as a graphic designer and doing freelance projects.
I have a passion for design, and love creating everything from logos to brochures to digital drawings to websites. Few things excite me more than creating a piece of art, and I love using my creativity to produce something that will make an impact on people.
In 2014 I achieved my general university admissions certification in Specialisation in General Studies with Art, Craft and Design Studies. During these three years I found a great interest in photography and spent a lot of time both outside and inside shooting nature and still life photos with great results. I made my way to Australia for the next year in 2015. At the University of Wollongong I studied photography, journalism, contemporary drawing, creative writing, and psychology. So I got input from many fields – finally finding an interest in digital drawing, which has since become one of my main interests.
After returning to Norway in 2016 I began the 2 year study program at Noroff Education AS as an online student. As a graphic design student I have tested myself through establishing identities for both real and fictive clients. This includes logos, business cards, photography, websites, branding, brochures, posters and more. 2018-2019 I’m a student at Teesside University in England, finishing by Bachelors of graphic design.
I have worked as a designer at a business in Norway, GV Reklame, since July 2017. In my position there I have built brand identities through logos, business cards, vehicle graphics, building decorations and more.
Graphic design for me is about creating something unique. I never back down if I see a challenge, and rather strive for the best possible solution I can find. I’m a perfectionist at heart. Because of this, and my knowledge and skills in the field, I can use my creativity to come up with unique and interesting designs. To me the most important part of a project is to make you as the client happy with the end result. I always do my best to find the best solutions fitted to your wishes.
Thank you for reading, and please do get in touch if you have any projects or opportunities. I will be excited to go on an adventure with you!
