Selected Works

MicroSun

Branding

Microsun is a portable artificial sun used to battle winter depression. The lamp can be powered by kinetic energy, so the more you move, the more your MicroSun shines. The work included logo, color palette, app design, and execution of material for ad campaigns.

Maria Hagsten Michelsen portrait

I'M a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, who helps clients develop their brand and define their essence through carefully crafted designs. I'm a Dane living in San Francisco, mixing Scandinavian minimalism with the passion and craziness of the golden state.

I have a masters degree in comparative literature, which makes me highly skilled in telling a brand’s story in an optimal way. I also have a keen visual eye that is always drawing inspiration from the world around me.

When I’m not designing, working on illustrations while listening to music or interacting in the Dribbble community, I’m probably drinking a cold IPA with my hubby or hanging out with my favorite peeps.
