samlad värk is a bundle of selected works by journalist and writer johan croneman. the blue color is the identical blue as sported by football team ifk norrköping, croneman’s favourite football team since childhood. the broken arrows on the front cover works as a metaphor for the fragileness surrounding his work. croneman is no stranger of showcasing his vulnerability while also being known to write slightly provocative texts. he often faces critique while also being a constant source of critique himself. therefore the arrows are being shot in both directions.

for galileos misstag by philip goff (galileo’s error). I wanted to create a tension between the abstract artwork and the typography where i used a typeface inspired by the early drawings of futura by paul renner, while further emphasising the retro-futuristic bauhaus era by only using small caps.
