Daniel Brokstad’s globetrotting design practice is all about being unique, daring and outstanding
"I'm always curious": The Norway-based designer tells us why he never wants to stop learning.
“The world is more global than ever” is the idea that sits at the heart of the virtual design initiative Brokstad Studio, helmed by creator Daniel Brokstad. With the studio being based in New York and Daniel working from Norway, they’ve managed to produce eye-catching projects that intermix different mediums for clients around the world. And for Daniel, the work is never done. “I’m always curious and never want to stop learning,” he tells It’s Nice That.
With a global mindset and opportunities aplenty, Daniel finds it’s the “daring clients that always excite me the most". And while he focuses on graphic design in the realms of branding, type design and illustrative type, he also wears the hat of 3D designer. Whatever discipline or part of the world he's in, Daniel is sure to bring his considered graphic approach, flexing designs that nimbly toe the line between simple and complex. He wants his clients to reflect that ethos, in the sense that he’s always on the lookout for “people who want to push boundaries, who want to create something unique and outstanding”.
