Elegant Design

Founder / Designer

I founded my own company because I wanted to teach myself how to do business and have relationships with clients and of course to develop my skills in design and web development. Over the years I've done several jobs embracing digital design, print design, photography and web development for various customers. Now the company's main focus is the project "Walk to Paris".

FINN.no

Designer

Summer internship. Worked in a student team consisting of six developers and one designer (me).
Our mission was to design and develop a prototype that demonstrates how one of FINN.no's most popular classifieds sections "Torget", could have looked like if concepts such as tags/keywords, instead of categories, had been introduced to increase the social engagement and make it easier to sell and find products.
