As you might know our journey started with the try-outs in Brande in the end of May and I can tell you being back at Campus three month later felt a little weird but 100% right. Not only because of the fact that it was exactly […]

More precisely I am traveling to China for 3 months to […]

Design diaries nr.1

3rd or January, my first workday of the year . Crazy to think that a year ago, probably around this time, I was super stressed about submitting the perfect application to this program. I was trying to come up with THE IDEA for the introduction video, desperately browsing through my works to show the most relevant portfolio, and write a passionate, yet professional, motivation letter […]
