I love stories.
Mankind has told stories all trough history, and I belive they are one of the most powerful ways for us to reach eachother and connect. So in everything I do I try to make good stories.

My name is Vera.
I am a designer and illustrator, I am a maker, I am a learner, I am a traveller and I am a storyteller.

My background is in illustration, which I have a BA (hons) in from University College Falmouth in the UK. I wanted to branch out however, so I moved on to study Interactive Art Director at Hyper Island in Stockholm. While being there I developed my skills in branding, teck, concept development,  ux, and teamwork amongst other things. SInce Hyper Island I have been freelancing, as well as participating in a placement at a Stavanger based print shop. While there I did graphic design of products, posters and brochures. I also did the layout and ads for local free newspaper, Lokalavisen.

Currently I am working as a freelancer within graphic design, illustration and textile art. I am open for new opportunities, so if you have an project you think I could help you with please don't hesitate to get in touch.
