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, EMI, Universal Studios, Warner Bros, Unicef, Adidas, Toyota, Audi, Burton, Dali, Google, Red Cross and charity organizations. In addition, I also work with personal projects, such as exhibitions and graphical prints. My work has been awarded in ADC Awards, One Show, ED awards, Telly Awards, ISTD Awards, Young Illustrators Awards, Muse Awards and Motion Awards. I graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in 2007 and since then worked as a Senior Designer and Art Director in digital, design and advertising companies. I have been lecturing on graphic design and digital design at Kristiania College and speak at different conferences all over the world. I now work as a Creative Director in Bekk based in Oslo.
