Working with education, I will be continuing programming the Hyper Island MA, alongside designing courses: I will be delivering Communication Design 2 course for Berghs again, as well as The Studio for Hyper Island.
Plus ongoing learning design projects with Hyper Island Executive Education.
I am very happy to be judging the Episerver Web Awards and speaking at Creative Mornings in Gothenburg.
I am also looking for a new physical home, and will be scouting studio spaces. AND, I will be looking to scale the studio work, looking for more events and experiential projects. So get in touch!
Have a lovely Christmas, and hope to see you all in the new year!
