About me

 

Hello, I am Åsa, a London based Swedish Designer & Illustrator with several years of experience of creating designs in a wide range of styles for different age groups, men, children and women. My speciality is to create work with a quirky twist, bold graphics, character designs and designs for children. As a freelance Designer & Illustrator I have worked on a wide range of projects ranging from children's books, murals and apparel to shop window displays and editorials and I love to explore new ways of working, new materials, new surfaces. My work has featured in magazines such as British Vogue and Swedish Cap & Design and recent clients include Sammy Icon, The Wallery and Modify Watches.
