A lot of people tell us they have trouble ordering prints in our webshop. You add something to the basket and when it’s time to check out, suddenly it’s gone… Big Cartel is hosting our webshop and to make purchases here you need to enable cookies. So that’s it folks, allow cookies while shopping and turn it off again afterwards if you want.
Also! We’ve been to Bjarne Agerbo’s studio to print some more Svalbard prints, so they’re now back in stock.
We recently returned from a very inspiring trip to Oslo, where we took part in the Visuelt 2013 seminar, an anual event hosted by Grafill. We were lucky to have the chance to talk at the seminar, and also to hear lots of inspiring talks by other designers – such as B. Martin Pedersen, founder of Graphis and Adrian Westaway from Vitamins Design Studio to name a few. The food was supplied by amazing Food Studio – visit their website, it’s really worth while, these guys are doing fantastic things with food.
Earlier this year we were also invited to be a part of the Visuelt jury for their annual design competition in the Illustration category, which was a lot of fun. And we got to see the Visuelt award show, where Norway’s design talents were awarded for their works in the categories Illustration, Graphic Design & Interaction Design.
Here’s a photo of some wonderful juices prepared by Food Studio at the Visuelt party on a roof top overlooking the city.
Hans Gerhard Meier just sent us this picture of the notes he took while listening to our talk at the seminar! :–D
Turboweekend just released an EP containing some of their best songs – in new interpretations. Once again we designed the artwork for them.
More pictures here.
This is our new illustration for a short story in Ud & Se, Danish Railways magazine. The story is part of a series that is based on dreams sent in by readers, which have then been interpreted by Danish authors. The story we illustrated is about a rivalry between two sisters and it features a HUGORM, which is a Danish type of snake….. (that basically means a smaller, less dangerous and less exotic version of a snake)
We recently took part in a the lovely project Secret 7” – a fundraising project combining music and art for a good cause.
We designed a piece for Nick Drake’s song Rider on the Wheel. The image is composed of layers of marbling, which were hand done in collaboration Jody Barton.
With seven tracks from seven bands and artists (including names like Nick Drake and Elton John) 700 vinyls were pressed, and creatives from around the world were invited to do artwork for one of these seven tracks, resulting in 700 one-of-a-kind sleeves for every song.
All the covers were exhibited for a week, and on Record Store Day (April 20th ) they were made available for purchase. All profits went to Art Against Knives to help fund creative initiatives around London.
This is a sheet of wrapping that we designed for issue #7 of the beautiful magazine Wrap.
Wrap is a design and illustration magazine featuring artists from around the world. Each issue includes five double-sided sheets of wrapping paper, which you can either use to wrap your gifts or hang on your wall.
This issue is titled Drawn Together and is themed around collaboration work. The concept behind our print is to show how creative work is all about assembling the building blocks you have at hand, represented here by wooden objects. It is depicted like a game, to convey that playfulness is an important part of creative work – and that building, taking down, and rearranging is all part of the creative process.
We just got back from an amazing trip to UK and Ireland… this is as close as we get to going on tour! We first visited London where our American agency Hugo & Marie have set up a group show called Being Dreaming at KK Outlet. The show presents a collection of works from the Hugo & Marie roster, including MVM, Mario Hugo, Merijn Hos, Santtu Mustonen, Kustaa Saksi and Tom Darracott, who we had the pleasure of meeting at the pre-show dinner, where we also did a Pecha Kucha talk at the gallery, which was a lot of fun. We also finally met Masha and Jennifer from Hugo & Marie – and we even got to meet Jennifers amazing mom!
The show opened on April 4th and will run until April 27th. If you are in London, do visit.
After this we traveled to Dublin to talk at the Offset festival, which was a huge experience. Thank you to everyone who came, and thank you for the overwhelming response we received.
We are now back in Copenhagen trying to get settled in our new studio that we moved to only last week. We are busy scheming a huge shelving system that we want to build!
At the pre-show dinner at KK Outlet. This is our new tapestry made specially for the show.

The photogravure prints we made in December are now available in our webshop! Limited edition of 20, signed and numbered. Interior is a remake of an illustration we once did for Form Magazine. Piramida and Svalbard are both based on our artwork for Efterklang’s latest album Piramida. Brush #1 and #2 are abstractions of brush strokes with fragments of illustration.
We will be screening Efterklang & Andreas Koefoed’s documentary The Ghost of Piramida at our studio on February 22nd. If you’d like to come, follow this link to find our screening and click attend! :–) There are only 10 spaces available. It will be a combined Friday bar and film screening, so bring a bottle of something, and perhaps a cushion, and we will provide snacks! We’ll show the film with a projector.
