Naja Conrad-Hansen

Naja Conrad-Hansen
 is a designer and artist who lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Coming from an artistic family, it was natural for her to choose an artistic path.
Graduating from Danmarks Design School in 2003 with a MA in Visual communication and a background in fine art; she started her profession as a freelance designer and artist in 2003. Her practice embraces illustration, painting, graphic design, art direction, and making silk-screen prints.

Inspirations comes  equally from the worlds of fashion, hardcore music, and traditional art and design and in general observing the world around her. 
The illustration style is basically about "finding some untouched areas of the mind and stimulating the eye and imagination. She is balancing her time between making art and commercial work as she finds they feed each other.

having 10 exhibitions and being known in many books/magazines.

i find her work to be fashionable,contemporary and bold.
it has similar design and taste as what i sometimes like to try out and achieve in some designs where it may suit.
i would like to try and create something bold in black with a splash of colour or just black and white like the top two images with the text worked in, this would work as poster for young adult target group
