What I do
Last year I launched my own creative agency, A-SPACE, where we craft visual identities and communications solutions through creative direction, brand identity, apps, websites, print, photography and video. I also do calligraphy and paint, considering myself a maker more than anything else. My Instagram is where I showcase my photography – often focusing on my artwork and daily life. I have to admit, even though I own a DSLR and film cameras, 98% of the time I shoot on my Iphone 7 because I’m always on the go.
A Day in My Life
While no day looks exactly alike for me, there are some reoccurring themes. I often start off the morning in my studio, drinking coffee and, working on my current projects. Then off to client meetings, cycling everywhere, as it’s the best way to get around Copenhagen quickly. When I’m back at the studio it’s all about ideation, design and creation. I’m always juggling multiple projects, and creativity is a huge part of how I operate. I’m a huge traveler, and I have a hard time staying in the same place for more than two minutes. My travels are where I most often find inspiration. I was just in Tokyo at the beginning of May, and I must have taken thousands of photographs.
Copenhagen Commuting – The Manhattan Bag
On most mornings, I can be found cycling through my home city of Copenhagen on the way to my studio in the city centre. I am usually carrying my cameras, laptop and my calligraphy pens, which take up more room than you would expect! It’s essential to be able to carry all of my tools easily and securely. I strap the bag to my bike and get around the city without any of the hassle of lugging gear around. The Manhattan bag suits me because of its versatility. I use it for my cameras, but also just to bring my laptop to a client meeting for example. I’m not a huge fan of the “standard” camera bag, so the Manhattan suits me because I can carry it by hand on the go, I can strap it to my bike, I can even use it as a backpack. Also, I like that it doesn’t look like your typical camera bag.
