Philip Battin is a design talent to be reckoned with. The young Dane has forged an impressive career in graphic design, art direction, strategy, web and product design that began aged 18 when he set up his own business selling web solutions. Since then he’s won numerous awards, kept his own business going strong and even held the prestigious role of art director at luxury street wear brand Norse Projects.
Philip’s portfolio is a magnificent place to spend some time both for the quality of work on display and the enormous diversity of the projects he’s undertaken. Recent highlights include a digital speaker, some innovative interaction design for the modern city and this striking identity for music venue Generator. For a man looking to “bridge technology and culture as well as strategy and design” we reckon Philip’s well on the way to achieving his goal.
