Jon Halfdan

I am a graphic designer interested in exploring the intersections between design, art, and everyday life. My practice varies from digital and physical perspectives, but always with the principle that positive change happens through creativity. We have a responsibility and I believe we can create functional, beautiful, long-lasting work through insight and creativity.

I'm a 26-year-old Norwegian creative currently living in London. I've been living in London for the last 2,5 years while studying at UAL. I recently graduated with distinction from Camberwell College of Arts, UAL, where I studied Graphic Design Communication. I have a bachelor's degree in Art Direction from Westerdals Oslo ACT in Norway, where I studied and played handball professionally. I love forward-thinking, bold ideas, but I also appreciate the simplicity of great design. From a young age, I've always been interested in illustration, which later sparked my interest in graphic design and the possibilities of thinking visually.

So yes, the reflective, reasonable yield of our mind has much symmetry (computation, cataloguing, narrativizing, etc.) but it’s actual shape is no shape, but unfolding chaos and singularity visible only to our particular time-scale. Our species-wide symmetries and quantizations are basically improvisations white-labeled onto directionless infinitude attempting the constant creation of navigable Dimension.

So, look intimately at a rock, walk around it, get up close to it, savor it’s complexion and composition as you would any painting or temple and see it as the faultless mirror that it is — a truly perfect sculpture.

We live our lives made up of a great quantity of isolated instants. So as to be lost at the heart of a multitude of things. (From the Double Dream of Spring, 1970.)
