My name is Daniel Åberg and I’m a graphic designer from Stockholm, Sweden. I work with both digital and print solutions for design as well as concept development.
I graduated from the graphic design program at Berghs School of Communication in 2012 and has since then worked at Universal Music Sweden where I’ve specialized on creating album artwork, and brand identities for artists as well as music related brands.
Sometimes I also like to geek out over video games, comics and hiphop.
