  • DISCIPLINES

    Myrna develops and implements creative solutions

    She helps entrepreneurs and established companies with completing an identity like a logo, businesscards, webpage and all kinds of promotional materials, healthy and inspiring work environment for more efficiency.

     

    By using lateral thinking she helps you signalizing the essence of a problem and can make the complexity of the problem simple by using visuals. She'll improve your thinking at least 1/4 further to break through the habits of thought.

     

  • PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    What I love about being a project manager is that I'm always  learning by new encounters. Each project has its own set of challenges, and forces me to constantly change and make adjustments to approach.  Plus, I get involved  in more than just structure and processes like technology, new markets, appealing products, new concept services, customers and people of any kind.

  • CORPORATE IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT

    Design thinking is a discipline that I use  to come up with methods to create a product that is technically feasible and meets the customer's expectations, is business wise viable because it adds value to the customers view and distinguishes from other products in the market.

  • GRAPHIC DESIGN

    I'm an all round graphic designer with a focus on corporate identity development. I use various methods to play with and combine words or symbols, images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. The aim is to use visual communication to be problem solving through the use of type, space and image.

  • DESIGN THINKING

    Design thinking is tackling obstacles by using new angles, to create new interfaces that lead to innovative solutions.  A discipline that I use to create a product that is technically feasible and meets the customer's expectations, is business wise viable because it adds value to the customers view and distinguishes from other products in the market.

  • ILLUSTRATION

    Explaining concepts by providing a visual representation that corresponds to the content of the associated text or idea is what I like a lot. The illustration can clarify complicated concepts or objects that are difficult to describe textually. Illustrations can be used in advertisements, greeting cards, posters, books, graphic novels, storyboards, manuals, business, magazines, newspapers, essays, or just as art etc.

  • PRODUCT DESIGN

    I'm always looking for the right balance between function and beauty. My products are functional and appealing for the eye. The products I'm working on right now are interior products which influence sound and a perfect dress for the sporty busy woman.

  • PHOTOGRAPHY COMMERCIAL DOCUMENTARY

    I like to document companies in its entirety, location, product, people and size. You get a good picture where the organizations stands for and how it works. Aim is to produce truthful, objective, and usually candid photography of a particular subject or context.
