JOVO VE

is a multidisciplinary designer that believes in strong communication.

One of Jovo's strongest points is his tenacity to translate concepts, thoughts and ideas into visual communication. Having worked with companies from Japan to Egypt, learning a strong appreciation of new cultures and the patience of working with new ideas for new audiences.

Working with design for Jovo is to put communication as the main starter point, great communication leads to awesome design. There is so much work in having good and clear communication but all that patience, time and tolerance leads to clear understanding.

It's Always Sunny In Tokyo

Project for the municipal city of Tokyo and the Tokyo Business network, to create a book of the city for people travelling to Tokyo for business. The problem that most people face when travelling to Tokyo is not knowing how the city works (norms and practices) and what the the different districts in Tokyo have to offer. By creating a easy book that can be shared digitally with business partners the city of Tokyo expands instead of googling something. The project offered a solution that does not require the connection of wifi, cheap to produce and share, stunning material and enticing photographs to create interest and curiosity.

APOGEE

Visual director together with Masato Yamaguchi from IDEASKETCH Tokyo, we worked together on making a visual backdrop and music videos. The band APOGEE had been absent from the music stage a few years and needed a graphic language for their performance in tune with their love for the city of Tokyo.

Remember Paper

Illustration work for New York based magazine Remember Paper with hidden front and back cover illustration of Elle Fanning.

ELSE Cairo

Graphic branding and visual strategy for Egyptian based communication bureau ELSE. I was brought in as a creative director / designer for the company's own branding, there was a certain challenge to working with ELSE because of the current political climate in Egypt. Drawing inspiration from how communication worked in the "trenches" we concluded that a strong graphical language was needed, something that would work in color but in black and white as well. Something that differ from the way the public percive communication firms but a language that would roar the underdog spirit to the established firms, making them hear that a challenger is coming.

Archival Revival

Archival Revival was a traveling exhibition made by master students at HDK in Gothenburg, in collaboration with the Swedish national archive (Riksarkivet). The theme for the exhibition was to create work with inspiration by the material in the archive and to transform the result to show how an archive can be utilized in different manners. I was part of the group who did the visual identify and branding for the exhibition. I worked together with: Daniel Christensen, Johan Ahlback, Markus Grudeborn, Erik Back and Jennie Lindell.
