The Studio

I'm Hans Christian Øren, a Norwegian designer based in Oslo. I work widely within the design disciplines with clients like Nike, ESPN, Adobe, Google and charity organizations. I graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in 2007 and since then worked as a designer, art director and illustrator. I have been lecturing graphic design and digital design and speak at different conferences all over the world. I now work as a Creative Director in Bekk based in Oslo.
