Proposal for Recess Gallery’s 10th Anniversary
At Typography Summer School New York in August, I worked with a brief for Recess Gallery in Brooklyn. Recess is a public gallery and artist workspace. Since 2009, Recess has produced more than hundred programs and exhibitions many of which deals with critical themes.
Inspired by the distribution and boldness by which social movements have expressed themselves historically, I created a design for Recess Gallery to use for there 10th Anniversary. Using colours to separate the four themes and high-lighting core words within the text, makes the subjects impossible to overlook. Text has been edited, original text is found on Recess’ website.

Body Soap Name Generator
A generator made with words from my collection of body soap products sold in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Today most body soap advertisement and design operate on the principle of hedonism rather than practicality. It is no longer a necessity but an indulgence. This hedonism is the most dominant trope, but not the only one, when selling body soap hyper commercially today. Consumers are e.g. being sold the idea of “the other” by taken us to imaginary places using soap names such as Asian Inspiration or Eastern Spirit.
Based on the English words from the front labels of 200 body soap products collected in supermarkets in Sweden, Denmark and Norway 2016-2018, Body Soap Name Generator explores how language, a combination of “glittering generalities” (emotionally appealing words) and value-laden particularity, is used to sell cleanliness on a massive scale.
In simulating the constant repetition advertisement depends on, this generator creates more than 800,000,000 possible product names—more than a lifetime of body soap names.
Body Soap Name Generator won Young Swedish Design 2018 and is currently exhibited at RIAN Falkenberg, Sweden, and will continue its tour to Designart Festival 2018 in Tokyo in October.
The booklet was created as a tool for teachers at Konstfack College of Arts, Crafts and Design to use when dealing with difficult ethical questions.
