About Me

Trained design professional graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2009.

I'm passionate about strategic design and creative graphic communication, and I love working with design concepts that bind various means and media together. Being structured and analytical with a pragmatic approach while focused on providing quality, enables me to be enterprising and to comply with deadlines. I see myself as a strong, open and an empathic team player.

Working with visual design, colors and graphic systems is a tremendous driving force for me. My professional qualifications stems from my passion for creative design development.

  • Jacob is an accomplished graphic designer, I have been very happy to work with in Villeby, a branch of Gyldendal Norsk Forlag. Jacob has a keen eye for the detail within each task but also sees the wide line and keeps a sharp red thread through his work, thus manifested, and content linked across such site, social media, ads, business cards, newsletters, etc. Jacob chips in with high professionalism, technical knowledge and a general broad understanding. That aside, Jacob is a super nice and honest guy who is easy to work with. During that time I have worked with Jacob, he has not had a single day of illness. It is only because our branch is shutting down, that our cooperation is stopping. Any workplace will no doubt be well served by Jacob as the selected graphic designer.
