Hi,
I'm Bo — an Associate Creative Director currently playing with colorful pixels at
Firstborn.

When designing, I always strive to push the envelope, and fight for what I believe in. I love working with small details that really make the work stand out.

Never play it safe.

"I had a pleasure working with Bo for over two years, and his exceptional art direction led to many successful digital campaigns at Firstborn. His positive energy is always influencing the team to push the design further. He is a great mentor to the team but also loves teaching students outside of the company."

JoonYong Park
Chief Creative Officer at Firstborn

 

"Bo is a very talented designer with a strong focus on craft. It's been a pleasure to work with him on a variety of projects over the years (brands like adidas and Jet come to mind). But it's not just about his care of craft—Bo is also great at presenting his work and aligning both clients and younger creatives to the larger creative vision. He is great on set whether it be live action video or a large photo-driven project. Being on set requires a clear creative vision but also a pragmatic and flexible approach which he has."

Dave Snyder
SVP, Executive Creative Director at Firstborn

 

"Bo's great. He's reliable, he's got really great design sensibilities and is very digitally native. He can demand a set just as well as handle a presentation. I'm not kidding. Bo is a great presenter. Must be the Danish accent."

Ulrika Karlberg
Creative Director at Yard NYC
