Norwegian design

As I told you yesterday, I want to share some of the things I have done for NO magazine lately.

In issue 20 of NO I wrote about Norwegian design - clothing design, graphic design, product design and furniture design. Read the whole article in Norwegian here.

Btw, do you recognize the guy on the front page? It's Morten Harket from a-ha, one of the most famous Norwegian bands. Who didn't love looove Take On Me in the 80s?!

Here are the peeps presented in the article:
