Marie made illustrations for our research project “Smart Nærstrøm”. She made a good and easy-to-understand presentation of a complex project, and we are very pleased with her work. She was also responsive and easy to work with throughout the process.

Researchers in the solar energy department at Institutt for energiteknikk (Institute for Energy Technology) in Norway contracted me to visualise how a smart-energy industrial system functions. Their project Smart Nærstrøm (Smart Commercial Electricity) combines integrated solar panels, prediction for the building’s energy needs, batteries, and storage systems that all work together. The commission included creating a logo for the project (top left). Partner logos (bottom) were provided by the companies themselves.

The full-page illustration can be presented whole or as individual icons. Learn more about Smart Nærstrøm on their website (in Norwegian): .
