Mattias Sahlén — Graphic Design & Art Direction

I’m an Art Director based in Sweden. With experience from different advertising agencies and design studios I currently work at Accidens with a variety of clients.

My work covers different fields of design and has been honoured with both national and international awards. I create everything from brand identities, ad campaigns and magazines to communicative concepts and posters – and everything in between and around. Consistently with a mighty passion for typography and layout.

I believe in working in close collaboration with each client and whether it is about developing a visual identity, designing a poster or giving my opinion on your new haircut, I always consider an open and honest dialogue invaluable. I want to know you and I want you to know me. Further I consider an open dialogue with mutual understanding key to all successful design.

I have a degree in media and communication studies through a graphic design program at Linnaeus University. I’ve also studied printing techniques at Mid Sweden University and graphic design at Nottingham Trent University.

I appreciate honest people, charming smiles and a good bowl of oatmeal with blueberry jam.

If you have an inquiry, a question, suggestion or just want to say hi – don’t hesitate to contact me.
