You are the expert in your field, and I can help you tell your core story!
Everything has a story. Every visual graphic element has meaning and symbolism beyond its shape, color and movement. Also sound, smell and other sensations can communicate and identity.
Through given principles we can find your unique story or your project message.
Finding your onlyness, the core, for better solutions. From the core we create a concept, a strategy, that speaks to your desired audience, that differentiate you and makes you noticed.
I'm looking for customers that want to challenge the status quo of communication, technology, visual possibilities, and together tell a different story. Also if you have a cool, interesting or fun idea, don’t hesitate to contact me!
I listen to your problem and after finding the Core, I follow given principles that help us find the best objective result possible. I use different methods to gain this result, that secure the communication and a high visual quality.
Some concepts I've done have look into the future of technology, breaking new ground on the web in animation, developed new ways of thinking entertainment & created brand stories that differentiate itself from the crowd. We all want great results and look good, but more important is to look correct.
I have experience acting as a facilitator, taking the role of art director, lead my own team of skilful designers, coders, illustrators, and other practitioners, or follow up an existing team of talented individuals.
Your needs are central to the design process. By first creating a good plan we can secure our result. This creates a fundament so everybody is on the same page with the same goal in mind. You, me and everybody involved. The concept can also be used as a communication tool for a larger team, so nobody wonder off in the wrong direction.
This makes it easier to create content because we all know where we want to go.
But remember, designs are always made on behalf of your customers and not you in particular.
I work as an art director, concept developer & designer. I've planed concepts for VR projects, game engine usage, web-stores using Square Space, created web- & app-animation, done Theater, Cinema, Show animation (large screens), made a lot of explainer videos, product presentations & commercials, Broadcast & tv-Studio identities, differentiated branding, lots of logo designs, print, music videos, web analytics (google webtools, google analytics, Crazy Egg and more), 3D modeling, 3D printing, 3D & 2D animation, photography, color correction, color grading & visual effects, image & video manipulation, sound design and more.
I do lectures at Kristiania College in Bergen teaching 3D and Animation, and I've also lectured in design and held other courses in After Effects, Cinema 4d, Illustrator, Photoshop, Cubase & Indesign.
I have a deep knowledge of video technology and conceptual world building.
As a certified Squarespace Circle Member I've been given different perks for all new site I create on the system. From longer time periods to develop sites (6 months) to 20% discount for my customers on their first year.
Over the years I've had the pleasure to work with these peoples :)

JHåland is me, Jørgen Håland and I’m a visual strategist and live and work in Bergen, Norway. I have an office space at Bergen Technologioverføring in Media City Bergen, an entrepreneur collective in the technology fields.
I’ve been a solopreneur since day one finishing my master degree in design from Bergen Academy of Art & design. I started doing design work the second year of my bachelor degree. And the last year of my master I financed my studies doing TV-graphic work and worked hands on with large projects and with a large team of talented individuals.
Even though I work «alone», I always work close with my clients and I also include other talented people to create interesting solutions on a variety problems. I call my self a visual strategist since I don’t only produce, but plan and facilitate projects. And this gives me the freedom to do whatever interests me; storytelling, make branding identities, video work, 3D visualization & animation.
For both large and small project I need to create a concepts. This create restrictions and is the easiest way to keep the result consistent. I love to find new connection that hasn’t been done and do something different in a familiar context.
I've added a lot of content to this site, but you can also see even more on my portfolio over at Behance profile.
