FROM PARIS & STOCKHOLM TO OSLO
Our backgrounds and inspirations were made to meet and are now creating a unique complementarity. Our strong expertise in design, brand strategy and project management is the result of more than 15 years of experience across the globe and collaborating from multinationals to brand-new concepts making our collaborative portfolio that special.
We are both passionated about design and art, and fascinated by how design shapes our emotions and our perception of the world. Since design impacts our environment, we want to change it for the better. With a human-centric working process and a bold artistic vision, we are able to shape new visions of objects, ideas, people and the world.
BEING SERIOUS ABOUT OUR WORK
BUT NOT TAKING
OURSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY
FOUNDER & ART DIRECTOR
Anna Katrin Karlsson
Anna came from Stockholm to Norway to study at KHiO, the National College of Arts and Design in Oslo. She ended up staying here and being the founder of Forest some 15 years ago. She is actually also living in the midst of the wild forest in “Oslomarka”.
Apart from loving the creative process as a designer, she also really enjoys collaborating with all kind of people, always trying to find the right expression for each project and to provide to the customer a visual solution that they didn’t really know they wanted. Every once in a while the final result even surprises herself!
If not working you can find her running or skiing in the Forests, or doing some gardening while drinking a green smoothie.
PROJECT MANAGER & STRATEGIST
As a child, Anne-Sophie wanted to be an air pilot.
Her shabby vision didn’t allow it, but today she has the same ambitions of always going as far as possible finding all the ideas and resources possible even if the sky seems to be grey at the starting point.
24 years later, with an international background in big companies and agencies, she knows her stuff in terms of high expectations and short deadlines. Whether it is for international campaigns or communication strategy for new businesses, the goal remains the same – create a feeling that people would remember strongly.
If you’re looking for her, she’s probably adding the missing piece to the puzzle that you wouldn’t have expected to find while drinking her 36th latte of the day.
