Hello Science is a portal that aims to connect people and resources in order to help bring meaningful ideas to life. The goal is to find sustainable solutions to the challenges we are facing today, inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The first challenge is focused on water.
The project is backed by Novozymes, the world’s leading producer of industrial enzymes.
The identity combines organic, fluid forms that are just like ideas which have yet to solidify into something concrete with serious typography and clear colours. The speech bubble logo adds a friendly touch and invites you to join the conversation; after all, the main focus is on exchange and collaboration.

During my time at e-Types Daily, I have worked on a number of corporate reports for Maersk Group, the world's largest shipping company, and affiliated companies.
I have been particularly involved in the design and layout of information-dense overview spreads and in designing info graphics.
I also oversaw the design of the 2013 Maersk Group Sustainability Report, which received high ratings from various agencies for it's easy-to-navigate layout and overall design and led the group on its way to a more transparent communication of their sustainability efforts.

At e-Types Daily I successfully launched three magazines for our clients for both iPad and Android tablets based on the Mag+ platform.

As part of a larger identity update done by e-Types, I was responsible for the development of a set of icons and a new corporate illustration style for the world's largest producer of enzymes, Novozymes.
Novozymes uses info graphics to illustrate and explain the sometimes complicated biological and chemical processes behind their enzyme-based products. The new illustration style was designed to be precise and scientific, yet friendly and simple. Also, it was important that the illustrations could be easily reproduced by any designer in Novozymes' global network.
The colour palette is limited to the company's main colours to ensure a consistent look, no matter where the graphics are used. Splashes of green or white (on a gray background) can be used to emphasise certain elements. The illustrations themselves use two line widths, which allow a degree of detail that is often necessary for explaining complex topics and adds depth and hierarchy to the elements.

Visual identity update for a Danish market analysis and consulting firm that changed their name from Analysegruppen to the more international ag analytics.

Design, layout and graphics for a publication by the Danish medical company Novo Nordisk making the case for an increased public focus on science and education in connection with plans by Novo Nordisk to hire several thousand new employees until 2022.
The brochure introduced 12 steps to increased growth and prosperity and used info graphics to explain the current situation, the economic benefits of increased public investments in education and basic research, and a short history of the company. Its release accompanied a one-day event of speeches and panel discussions with scientists, politicians, and business leaders at Novo Nordisk's headquarters.
During the production, I worked closely together with a multidisciplinary team of consultants and analysts to interpret the statistical data and express these findings in a clean, impactful design.
A full pdf of the publication can be downloaded from Novo Nordisk's website here.

Identity for a company-internal initiative.
Based on the programme's three cornerstones, a simple and flexible visual system was generated. The three rhombus shapes each represent one of the programme's cornerstones and come together to form a hexagon, resembling an isometric cube. Zooming in, this model becomes an abstract shape with a dynamic, forward-moving expression, where single planes can be used as a container for images.
The TAKING LEAD_ wordmark can be followed by any of the three actions and is in itself an invitation to move forward and find one's own way to enable the company to take lead.
Digital annual report for the Copenhagen waste management company, arc. The website presents numbers and stories from the past year in an appealing format, using the identity's signature bold colours.

A travel guide to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ilulissat Icefjord in western Greenland.
As the first guide book ever published for this area, it is a one-stop guide that includes practical tips, an introduction to the area's history and geological background, information about the areas ecological importance, and an illustrated guide to flora and fauna as well as illustrated directions for several hiking routes. Colour coded tabs assist in navigating the content.
The character of a park ranger serves as a guiding figure throughout the book with safety tips and interesting facts.
The book itself was designed to be rugged enough to survive in a hiker's backpack, with a rubber band to keep the pages together and a waterproof cover. The accompanying map is printed on "stone paper", an extremely durable and waterproof material with excellent recycling abilities. The colour scheme takes it cues from Greenland's icy nature, supplemented with a few high-visibility accents for important information.

Poster illustration for the Danish Society of Engineers. The poster communicated key facts about the organisation, such as areas of activity, number of members etc.
The back of the poster functions as a leaflet when folded and contains short texts that further explain the structure and work of IDA.
In connection with their new visual identity designed by e-Types, Realdania, a private association of home owners supporting philanthropic projects in architecture and planning in Denmark, needed various graphics to illustrate the organization's main focus areas, which are:

— Innovation in Construction
— Living Built Heritage
— Cities for People
These program areas are combined in the illustration of a city, which can be used as a background pattern in various applications.
