I’m a passionate Danish Graphic Designer and Creative based in Ilkley on the edge of the beautiful Ilkley Moor in West Yorkshire. I graduated from Leeds College of Art with a First Class Honours Degree as a mature student after a change in my career in 2015.

Background & Approach

I founded Nordika Design Ltd. t/a Stompa - a furniture business - in 1998. My background in building up and managing Nordika Design has been invaluable in my ability to understand my clients’ needs and help them reach their goals.


When you set up your own business you do everything yourself in the beginning - from spotting the gap in the market to product design, sourcing and spending time at the factories, coordinating logistics, selling  products and managing your brand.


With that experience behind me, I approach every project with a mindset that takes all aspects of your business, its challenges and potential growth into account.

I have teamed up with an amazing ‘extended team’ of experts that I can bring around the table to help fulfill briefs from time to time which means we can also take care of your photo shoots and produce promotional films for you.

Focus & Design Style

My work is mainly focussed on branding, web design, packaging design - and everything print.
A specific skill of mine is to help you get ready to launch a new product or idea and put a tailor made package together that includes everything you need to bring your product to market.

I love clean, simplistic design and I’m told my designs have traces of the Scandinavian style.

How we charge

Having been accustomed to always running a tight ship in my business, I believe that there’s no need to spend more money than necessary. Therefore I have structured my design studio so that you will only ever pay for the specific service you need and nothing extra.

If you have a project in mind or you’re curious to know more, please get in touch.
