ABOUT

I'm Simon Friis, born on a farm outside a little town in Denmark.
When I was just a few years old, I grabbed a pencil, started drawing and haven't stopped since.
My love for drawing and illustration has become a visual language for me... a way to see and experience the world.
I am however not an illustrator, but I have used illustration to move into the dimension of Visual communication and Graphic design.

I challenge myself creatively, always trying new platforms, searching for new media or something else entirely... Communication is they key, and to me communication is a story. Everything and everyone has a story to tell. Stories holds memories, emotions, paradoxes and sensations. As a creative one has to work with, nurse, unfold or unravel these stories and communicate them in aesthetic and exciting ways.
