My name is Ingrid. I love cats, techno, expensive clothes, video games, champagne and the smell of summer rain.
Besides that, I'm a graphic designer and art director from Sweden who believe that design comes with a great responsibility. Right now, I work as a graphic designer at Forsman & Bodenfors in Sweden, with clients like Volvo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and SK-II.
My job is to deliver a message that is understandable for the audience, and maybe even to change their minds. If I can do that and at the same time have fun, I'm happy.
