Nordic Creative Talent Award winners: Daniel Brokstad is designing cool fortune cookies
Approaching every work with an innovative sense and having the ability to mix different techniques and apply them to everything from fortune cookies to corporate identity design.
Graphic Designer Daniel Brokstad from Norway from Norway won one of Adobe’s acknowledged Nordic Creative Talent Awards last year:
Read the jury’s motivation for selecting Daniel Brokstad:
”Approaching every work with an innovative sense and having the ability to mix different techniques and apply them to everything from fortune cookies to corporate identity design. Therefore Daniel Brokstad deserves the title Creative Talent.”
Daniel is currently traveling the world while working as a freelancer. He gets inspiration from his travels, experiencing new cultures, art galleries and design blogs. His main focus is on packaging, branding and typography. He also uses many illustrations in his design.
”As a multidisciplinary designer I like to deliver the full design service myself of both doing the design and illustrations, without needing to outsource the latter. I often blend in custom typography in my design as well, which also tends to be on the illustrative side,” says Daniel Brokstad.
How does it feel to be a winner of the Nordic Creative Talent Award?
”To a certain degree is kind of unreal. In the sense that I always look to others for inspiration for their good work, not thinking about my own design as the inspiration.”
Daniel Brokstad uses Illustrator, Photoshop Indesign and sometimes Dreamweaver and After Effects whenever needed. His favourite tool is the Pen Tool in Illustrator:
”Saying the Pen Tool is the best feature of Illustrator sounds too simple of an answer, but actually it just works so well,” says Daniel Brokstad.
