// Kristine Mandsberg is a professional designer working

from her studio at Nørrebro, Copenhagen.

She has a BA degree in textile design from Kolding

School of Design and a Master degree from the

renowned Royal College of Art in London.


Kristine offers a variety of services, so please contact

her if you want to collaborate.


Her work is very diverse but always carries her distinct style,

where illustration, pattern, materials and colour

comes together in different objects, products, artworks,

installations, decorations, animations, textile and papercuts.


With a background as a textile designer and illustrator,

her drawing style is influenced by traditional handicraft

techniques, patterns and textures.

Kristine has a special style that combines a very illustrative,

nearly tactile expression with clean graphic lines that shows

her personal, abstract perception of her surrounding.
