Katarina Fegraeus is multidisciplinary designer. From concept and identity to website, digital design, print design and art direction.
(All artists have to answer the same 10 questions.)
1. First and Last Name
2. Where are you from? And where are you currently living?
Karlstad, Sweden and currently living in Stockholm, Sweden.
3. What’s your main influences?
Music, art, architecture. I try to find inspiration in both older and modern design, I like to mix trendy and timeless aesthetics.
4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
My first artistic hobby was photography, and when I was around 15 my dad installed Photoshop on our computer. I started playing around with the effects and went totally crazy with it. It seems like everyone goes through that phase of doing “ugly” stuff to learn and I’m glad I had mine early.
After 3 years of photography in high school, I had a few random jobs and hated all of them. I applied for a 2-year education in graphic design and got in. There I was studying traditional print production and I wanted to be more digital so I had my internship at a digital ad agency and worked there for three years before I became a freelancer.

5. Where do you see yourself next?
I’ve started working on a few t-shirt designs and posters. I would love to do more of my own projects and start a webshop. In the future I would love to work more with smaller clients and be there from the start, the branding, website etc.
6. Knowing what you know now, what would be your advice for people in the same area?
Working with big clients is overrated. You probably won’t have much creative freedom and it will have to go through a lot of people who will want to make it their own.

7. Is there something you are terrible at :)?
I was so happy when flat design happened because I’m terrible at designing with dropshadows, gradients and effects.
