I’m Bodil, a book and identity designer living in Trondheim, in the middle of Norway. I work with companies of all sizes. However, my main passion will always be to create design for culture based industries.

A Master’s Degree in Sequential design at the University of Brighton in 2000 opened my eyes to how stories can be told visually, how typography can support, touch or provoke. After 10 years as a graphic designer in the advertising industry, it was for me time to carry out an old dream. I started my own design company, and now I choose my own projects, clients, workspace and in which part of the world I want to work. Most of the time I work at home in an apartment with a breath-taking view of the beautiful Trondheim, just a stone’s throw away from the river Nidelva and the Nidaros Cathedral.

I get inspired by travelling and every year I bring my Mac and my projects to a foreign country, rent a flat, and stay there for about a month. I love to find great places, good coffee and galleries, and talk with local people. Staying in Berlin, Barcelona and Beijing has given me a lot of inspiration, new friends and professional input.

Please get in touch if you have projects that you think will benefit from my services.

 

Bookology

Bookology is a project / teaching program developed by Bodil that will provide an understanding of how a book is visually and practically made, through the focus of identity, creative typography and other effects. The goal for each participant is to have a simple, self produced book at the end of the project, that reflects an identity of chosen direction. By facilitating the thinking and conscious choices, you will be able to understand how books are designed and manufactured in a larger perspective.
