This is Ruth.

She is a graphic designer and visual artist working from the co-working space at LYNfabrikken.

What do you do?
I help my clients to communicate visually. I'm a designer and art director, and I refer to myself as a visual interpreter. I have a background as a textile designer, but now I do both visual identities, logos, posters, prints, large-scale wall decorations and personal artwork.

I guess I have a more artistic approach than many other graphic designers. And that might be the reason I find the more corporate projects very interesting; when the guidelines of a project are very strict and I have to sneak in my artistic visions. It’s like crashing a party and try to fit in. My curiosity plays a leading role in my portfolio. I love trying very different – and for me unknown – things; to approach them with my specific skill set.

What would you like to do?
I would like to do more large-scale projects. I have been lucky enough to be invited to decorate Salling Rooftop and Bruun’s Galleri, which was amazing. But I'm not necessarily looking for more high-profile projects. Basically I would just love to work with great people on awesome projects, which make a difference and an impact – whatever the context might be.

What are you into?
In general I’m almost obsessively curious – about everything. The surface doesn’t interest me, but I love to dive in and look at what lies beneath facts, feelings and trends.

This is Niels-Ole

He is a digital artist and graphic designer working from the co-working space at LYNfabrikken.

What do you do?
“I do motion graphics, 3D-animation and graphic design. My work often has an artistic or at least very creative dimension to it. I’m convinced that when we prioritize a playful and creative approach to the challenges ahead we end up with a much more satisfying result. If not we probably only get a slightly different version of the same old story.“

What would you like to do?
“I love to help build visual worlds from scratch. Sure I can work with making existing material come alive, but I really thoroughly enjoy creating projects from the ground up. To define the fundamental expression and establish the look and feel. Basically creating identities and considering how they can be implemented everywhere from the smallest detail on the website to animated logos and product design. More of that, please!”

What are you into?
“Movies! I can’t help but consider how certain images are used to support the story and how visual effects can help overcome creative challenges and, most important, naturally blend in.”

Meet Julie.

She is a journalist, moderator and curator of conversations. She is working from the co-working space at LYNfabrikken.

What do you do?
“I mostly work as a moderator of debates and conversations for various clients – mostly through an event concept I call Livemagasinet (The Live Magazine). Basically I create a space for live conversations that can show nuances often edited out of print media. Most journalism often seek out conflict, but I work for the understanding of different mindsets. And the live conversation in front of an audience is really great for that. It has a sort of intense energy, that you don’t find anywhere else.”

What would you like to do?
“Basically I would just love to do more Live Magazines and explore very different approaches to big and essential subjects. I really enjoy talking to people that represents fundamentally different views on a subject and then realize through conversation, that they actually have a lot of common ground. That’s amazing and that’s why I’d love to do many more live conversations with very different and great people on immensely important subjects.”

What are you into?
“I’m just really interested in people in general. Hearing their stories and what they hold dear. I guess I just really want to understand people in the same way, I’d like to be understood myself.”

This is Sune.

This is Sune. He runs his own graphic production agency – Graphic Unit – from the co-working space at LYNfabrikken.

What do you do?
“I produce all things in print. I used to work as a project manager at a print shop, but I like working independently. It means I can focus even more on helping clients choose exactly the right solution for every job. I work closely with both my clients and around 30 different printing houses. So I understand the specific need on one hand and know all the printing-possibilities on the other.”

What would you like to do?
“I love to do the more creative stuff – like art books. It’s a very interesting proces, and I can work on letting the creative expression be mirrored perfectly in the material. I’m a paper nerd, and choosing the right paper can be a very creative process. So I would love to do more projects like that.”

What are you into?
“Design and quality. I guess this interest reflects in my work – my attention to detail and my ability to help my clients choose the right paper and the perfect solution.”

This is Claus.

He is a journalist and works from the co-working space at LYNfabrikken.

What do you do?

“I have been a writing journalist and editor for many years, but now I’m building a business around my video production. And I am working more with B2B communication in general than journalism specifically. But I believe my background as a journalist sets me apart from other people working with video production. I’m very concerned about telling the important story in everything I do.”

.

What would you like to do?

“I’m still writing as a freelancer, but I’m pursuing video more and more, because I really want that to be the main part of my business. It’s like learning a whole new language, and I’m working as manually as I can because I really like the control and creative possibilities you have, when you work manually and mechanically. I also have a couple of long form documentaries on the drawing board, which I have applied for external funding for. So more video production and important storytelling.”

.

What are you into?

“I’m into different things: I write music and play guitar in my home studio. And then I can’t help to still hold an interest for the field of grocery, wholesale and distribution, which is a field I have worked with as a journalist for many years.”
