Print & Pattern has another new designer joining the Designers for Hire directory this week - Magnus Riise. Magnus is based in Oslo, Norway and creates surface patterns, illustrations and graphic design. He studied a BA in visual communication at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design in Norway, and also attended the Kolding School of Design, in Denmark. Magnus describes his work as "colourful, fun and sophisticated, and sometimes with a retro feel". Magnus would welcome all kinds of freelance projects from pattern design to book covers and you can see more from his portfolio online here.
