2017 • This is a concept project about a group called WRS. The company has three subsidiaries: WRS Graphics, WRS Technics and WRS Premium. Each company has its own differentiated sub-brand that form the global brand. I tried to design as many brand elements as possible, ranging from websites and app icons to business cards and PowerPoint templates.

2013 • Glittertind's brand new album, Djevelsvart ("Devil Black"), has hit Norway hard. These young guys really know how to write music and you should definitely listen to their new master piece of soulful, folkish rock. I had the joy and opportunity to once again create the layout for the CD, vinyl and iTunes versions of the album. The amazingly beautiful cover artwork itself was done by Linda K. Røed and I expanded on her work to create the rest of the whole package. The theme of the album is the unsettling existential questions raised by the second industrial revolution of the late 19th century and the rise of individualism and the waning of religion in the growing cities.

2002–2003 • These are the artworks for Swiss death metal mob Amok's first two EPs. Hephaistos' theme is inspired by the Greek god of metallurgy who builds mighty weapons and artefacts for the gods of Olympus in his forge, deep down under a volcano. In another style, I found the title "Necrosapiens" quite inspiring too!
