This is part 1 of 2 articles about “Den Blå Planet” (The Blue Planet).
Denmark’s new Aquarium. Part 2 is coming shortly.
The Blue Planet / Den Blå Planet, New Architecture in Denmark
I do like architecture. It is a one of my big interests. Whether it’s a beautiful building,
a lovely piece of furniture or interiors, I very much enjoy looking at details and materials.
Today a new building, placed in Copenhagen the capital of Denmark, has it’s grand opening. “Den Blå Planet” – in English: “The Blue Planet” is Denmark’s New Aquarium.
The largest of its kind in the North of Europe. Built by the Danish Architects: 3xN,
it is a beautiful building to look at.
I went there recently to view and photograph this new piece of architecture from the outside (only) and since it opens today I find it is a perfect time to share these pictures
Alright, I hear you, I hear you. You are tired of Winter. You want Spring?! Now!
- No more snow, no more slippery roads, no more wollen hats, no more gigantic jumpers.
No more cloves, no more coats, no more…. well I hear you.
As I am not (surprise) Mother Nature I really cannot do an awful lot about the weather as such. BUT, what I can do hopefully is make you smile, which hopefully will help you to stay warm a little while longer. Just enough to keep you going until Spring is here for real.

All the best,
From time to time, I like to join some of the different challenges happening on Instagram.
Although it’s mostly for the fun of it, I find that I am developing my creative thinking this way too – not to mention my editing skills. I really enjoy looking at the different pictures coming in. It’s very inspirational to me.
This picture I created yesterday for the Hopestagram challenge.
What do you think about it?
All the best,
Let’s talk about money
I recently wrote an article talking about the cost of a logo. You can read the article here.
It made me realize, that I quite like to discuss another ongoing theme, which I have encountered during many years in this business. The money talk!
When talking about money, and in my case the pricing of my design, it tends to be making people/clients a little nervous. You know what?… It does not need to be like that. Here is what I suggest.
J Fletcher Design
Being a big fan of good ideas, cool details and lush print, I am thrilled to show J Fletcher’s work here on my blog. Not only does his portfolio keep some really great examples of those things, he is also a fantastic illustrator.
How much is a logo?
Right, I have been asked this question many times in a rather casual way like: “Oh, by the way, how much is a logo?”..
Of course, it is a simple and valid question. I mean after all everything does have a price… But the answer is not as simple.
Personally I always “answer” by asking a question: “It depends on what you are looking for?”. Continue reading

Logo and stationery are important parts of the business!
Yes, I know, you’ve already heard this a ton of times. As a professional you know that you need to have a logo. You also need to have a letterhead, a business card, a website, a brochure etc. etc… It’s old news!
As a freelancer, I am also aware that you probably think it costs way too much.
