Brief Summary
Hello!
My name is Jens Magnusson. I'm a Stockholm-based illustrator, graphic designer and artist working for a broad variety of clients. My portfolio includes works for books, magazines (editorial illustration), newspapers, museums, kitchen ware producers, advertising and fashion. My illustration technique is a self-invented-computer-collage style that I try to keep evolving.
My goal is to make people smile and hopefully lighten up their day a bit with one of my designs for a book cover, a pattern for a coffee cup, a poster, a screen print, a children's book illustration, etc.
I graduated with an MA in Illustration and Graphic Design at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm in 1999. Since then I have been freelancing full-time. My inspiration comes from many different elements and I often get my ideas when out running.
In 2012 I won a Kolla!-award for my illustrated posters for Lill-Skansen Children's Zoo and in 2009 I held my first solo exhibition in Stockholm.

Welcome to my portfolio!
