below is the tale of søren hornum.
Or Krølla (Curly) as some of my friends call me for obvious reasons. I'm 27 years old and I have just moved back to Norway after four years or studying and working down under in Australia. My time in Australia is something worth mentioning as it has helped shape who I am both as a designer as well as a person. Moving to Australia to complete my bachelor of Graphic Design was very natural to me as a person having spent more time outside than inside Norway since I turned 19. Traveling might in fact have been one of the things that opened my eyes to design in the first place. So, after completing a Diploma of Graphic Design in Trondheim I travelled directly to the beautiful Gold Coast in Australia to continue my studies, little did I know that I would spend the next 4 years there.
While completing my Bachelor I was working as a freelancer on smaller projects as well as doing an Internship to help get work experience. After graduation, I got offered a job as a tutor for the University helping new designlings learn the necessary software skills as emerging design professionals. I soon moved past just teaching software courses and got involved with a lot of subjects covering creative thinking and creative entrepreneurship. Alongside my work duties at the university I also undertook an Honours Study focusing on sustainable practices within the publishing industry, looking at current and future practices to help reduce the footprint of this industry. Sustainability has always been important to me, but after completing my honours degree I am more than ever making sure my design choices are sustainable and responsible.
This brings us back to Norway where I am now looking for job where I can utilise my skills learnt through studies, internships, freelance work and as a design tutor through the last 6 years in Norway and abroad! If you are looking for a Graphic Designer with additional skills in video editing, animation and creative thinking theory, please shoot me an email or check me out on social media so we can have chat about how I can help you.
