Fiksern AS new logo
Client: Fiksern AS
Fiksern AS is a small company in Norway delivering various products and services within special effects, custom rigs and stunts. Their expertise within special effects involve atmospheric effects including falling snow, snow (on ground) and ice, rain, wind and combinations of these.
Brief: Identity and website
The brief (in short) was to create a new logo and identity to better convey the company image as being the leading player and most professional area of business. Furthermore the website needed to be recreated mostly from scratch.
Fiksern.no responsive website
The solution for web is built on WordPress and relies on Bootstrap to help minimize and streamline the new visuals. A series of plugins are used to solve the compressing of images, the setup for two languages, getting section control within each page and for various needed security measures.
The team: Roy H. F. (project management, design logo & web), Kim H. F. (design web, web-dev), Thinh N. (design logo)

Patronising | Supportive – There is a fine line between
First semester 2013 at RMIT Melbourne
Brief: A0 poster. Very little limitations for theme and methods, some level of experimentation were expected during the proses.
Patronising | Supportive ‘There is a fine line between’
There is a fine line between being patronising and being supportive, but for the receiver the difference between them can be miles apart.
The society’s most common solution for depression —and suicidal thoughts—, in nearly all circumstances be to medicate, tell people what they are doing wrong, how to think and what to do. This will often be understood as being patronising and might escalate the problem.

One of my classes in semester 2, 2012 at Deakin was ‘Graphic Novels and Artists’ Books Studio, for this class we had only one practical assignment and we could chose to make an graphical novel or to create a artists book I selected to create a book, and my theme for the book was ‘As seen from a crazy mans perspective’, So what the images actually show is not really connected to the text. All the images is from a Facebook group that collects images and memories from the town in Norway I lived for the first years of my life. I asked in the group for permission to use the images and was clear that I would add descriptions to the images that were not true to the actual content, no one objected to the use.
The final product is limited in the methods used as the time limit to get the book finished for the submission did force me into be selective in methods and also how much time to use on each page. I also did chose to remove about half of the initial pictures/spreads that I wanted to use initially.
Here you can view the whole book:

For semester two 2012 I did a couple of assignments based around Deakin School of Communication and Creative Arts, first part of the assignment was to create a suggestion for a new logo for the school. My submission based the design on the new Deakin Worldly logo and the use of 6 colours to represent the 6 different fields within the school. The logo needed to be animated, After Effects is not one of the software I am really comfortable with, but anyway here is what I submitted.

Second part of the assignments, projection. Make a proposal for something that can be projected on any building on campus, goal is to promote Deakin SCCA. I chose one of the iconic buildings, the cheese-grater and wanted to continue the use of the colours and also reuse the previous made logo animation.

This were the second assignment for the Packaging Design class, we could choose between two briefs, one were to crate packaging for a series of teas and the other a series of cosmetic products. I went for the first one, and made a series using brown paper and the colors were chosen based on the teas colors. On the packaging I included brewing times and temperatures as well as information about the teas benefits, taste and colors.
The Organic Revival logo is the four leaves from the tea series combined with the name and a simple circle. The font used is Prosto. The individual packages is decorated with a circle of leaves on a background based on the tea color. The whole project is simple Illustrator work and a little InDesign.
