About me

To view my portfolio please visit www.torstenpower.co.uk My name is Torsten Power, I'm a freelance graphic designer currently based in London. Graphic design is my obsession. When I'm not designing, I spend my time posting on/ getting inspiration from design forums like Behance, looking through art and design magazines and reading books by great designers like Aaron Draplin, Drew de Soto and Chip Kidd. I left school at the age of 16 and was thrown right into the deep end of the creative industry, working for Chalk Social, an award winning digital advertising agency based in Shoreditch. At Chalk Social, I was given the opportunity to work on digital adverts for major companies such as Clarks, Warehouse Fashion and LighterLife UK. From there, I moved onto Iconic Media Solutions, a media solutions company in which I worked within a small team of designers to produce logos, magazines, responsive websites, event publications, posters and digital adverts (the list goes on). I'm currently working as a freelance graphic designer from my home in North London, designing a range of things for various clients including logos, websites, exhibition catalogues, flyers, business cards, t-shirts and more.
