Bio

Hello! I'm Lisa, a graphic designer/illustrator from Stockholm, Sweden. My favorite part of graphic design is developing concepts and telling stories. I want graphic design to be easily accessible, inclusive and fun - something I always strive for in my projects. I have always dreamed about working abroad, and WGI feels like the perfect opportunity to do that - for a limited period of time and without being tied to one place.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Everyone says they want to "change the industry". I don't want to change the industry, I want to shake it by the core. Ultimately, I don't want there to be an industry. I want graphic design to be democratic. I want it to be for everyone.

Hello! I'm Lisa, a graphic designer/illustrator from Stockholm, Sweden. My favorite part of graphic design is developing concepts and telling stories. I want graphic design to be easily accessible, inclusive and fun - something I always strive for in my projects. I have always dreamed about working abroad, and WGI feels like the perfect opportunity to do that - for a limited period of time and without being tied to one place.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

Moving to Copenhagen last summer mid-pandemic. Not knowing anyone, at a workplace I had never been to and without family being able to visit I was all alone in this new city. An experienced that I really grew from as a person.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

It's like family ties. They are more than related, almost synonymous to me. How can one ever come without the other. Innovation has to be creative, and creativity has to be innovative, don't you think?

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Clarity in combination with creativity is super important for reaching out. Not to one specific target group but to everyone concerned. Clarity provides democratic design - for everyone to be able to understand and feel included.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I would probably start baking a loaf of bread (and get back to it later during the day), baking sourdough is my biggest hobby. Or I would just take a walk, I have be outside every day, no matter the weather.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

One risky/bold goal I have is to one day live abroad, no matter the cost. One problem I would like to solve is the lack of people with cognitive disabilities in the design industry. We need more various views on what creativity can be.

6. Explain your creative process

I always write a lot. I write and write and write before I begin to sketch. I like to make sense of my thoughts and create a concept that I believe in before I can get to the visualization.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

Don't think too much. Just create something, and the hand will think for you.

8. What is your definition of creativity?

Coming up with something that feels important and new for oneself. It will naturally feel important and new to others as well. Having fun and doing things out of pure joy, not because it's thought out in some strategic plan.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

Laisee tomber les filles - France Gall, Macho - Jakko Eino Kallevi, Dance - ESG, Poupée de cire poupée de son - France Gall, Peupleraie - Clément Froissart, You can have it all - George McCrae, Mind your own business - Automatic, En cavale - Juniore, Vida Antiga - Erasmo Carlos, Love is a hurtin thing - Gloria Ann Taylor

10. How do you want people to remember you?

Positive, brave and a little bit unexpected

Have you been convicted of a crime and/or a felony? If so, what was the offense? State the city, country, and date.
