My name is Hanne Løvdal, and I run Lovedales Studio. I live in Oslo, Norway with my husband and our two girls. In 2013, after a decade working as an art director for one of Norways's leading women's magazines, I started off my own business. That's also when this paper shop came to life...
With Lovedales Studio, most days are a lot of fun. I'm lucky to get to work on exciting projects with inspiring and talented people, and with publishing houses and businesses that trust in me. I have been lucky to have my posters being sold in shops across the world, and they also have been featured in several magazines. (You can see some of the people and businesses I've worked with further down this page.)
I really enjoy doing editorial illustrations and graphic design for books and magazines. And over the last years I have been given chance to work with most of the major Norwegian publishing houses. In addition I also take on commercial commissions. (The photos above are from a design cooperation with BesserWasser and LOA Design Studio in Salzburg, June 2016.)
My inspiration comes from warm Norwegian summer nights, beautiful films, nature and magazines (of course!). It often ends up in light, dreamy and whimsical, often detailed pencil or water color illustrations. I feel that a finishing digital touch gives my pencil and gouache illustrations that last little oomph!
