Work History

  • Senior Graphic Designer/ Art Director

    • Pahlavani Design
    • Oct 2009 - Present (4 years 9 months)

    I freelance as a Senior Designer and Art Director with a passion for all aspects of art and design. I believe in making strong designs that inspire and excite my clients, by thinking outside of the box. I am a fan of the 'less is more' philosophy of design and tend towards clean, simple aesthetics and bold lines.
    After many years working as an Art Director at a number of Swedish ad agencies I decided to make the jump and go it alone – under the name Pahlavani Design.
