About

Niclas is an experienced and driven Art Director with knowledge and experience in working with brands and brand development.

My name is Niclas and I’m currently working as an Art Director for Bonnier News in Stockholm. 2019 I finished the program “Motion Creative” at Hyper Island in Stockholm while on leave from my former position as graphic designer position at Tekniska verken.

During my time as an Art Director at Bonnier News I’ve worked with and developed their visual identity. My work includes 2D animation, graphic design, event planing and film production. I’m always looking for new techniques and methods. I’ve adopted a learn-by-doing mentality, and am a quick learner regarding almost any visual media.

In 2015, I completed my education at Yrgo Yrkeshögskola in Gothenburg, where I got both theoretical and technical knowledge about design and print.

Other than my work and studies, I’m deeply passionate about creating music and visual art as a way to hone my creativity and to express myself. I play in a death metal band from my hometown and am always keen to play live shows whenever possible. In the little free time I have left, you can usually find me nerding out with my board and card game friends.
