My name is Hjan Robert Korneliussen. I´m 29 years of age born and raised in Bergen – Norway. I´m a Graphic Designer and Typography Artist, and I´ve been studying Graphic Design at the Norwegian School of Creative Studies in Bergen – Norway. After that, I moved to Gold Coast – Australia where I finished my Bachelor of Digital Media (Graphic Design) at Griffith University.
I currently live in Norway working as a freelance designer, while starting a company with a good friend of mine. I´ve been doing work for people all over the world including Australia, Norway, America and Germany.
For me, Graphic Design is all about communicating a message in a simple but exciting way that attracts peoples attention. I do logo design, web design, packaging and more, but specializing in branding and typography.
You can find me cruising on my penny board in the Norwegian streets while listening to my favourite tunes and living my passion.
My passion for typography started as a young kid growing up with old “spanish montana hardcore” spray boxes in my hands, while busting som moves on the floor as a b-boy (breakdancer). At School, I gladly scribbled and colored all the letters I could find instead of doing my homework!
Today, thanks to my former teacher Dominique T. Falla at Griffith University and my overall experience in Australia, I got inspired to practicing more readable typography in different styles and shapes. Although I´m still painting some burners in the streets yelling “woop woop thats that sound of the police” (just kidding with the police part).
