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.

Research scientists at Institutt for energiteknikk (Institute for Energy Technology) hired me to illustrate an industrial smart-energy system. The research project Smart Nærstrøm (Smart Commercial Electricity) incorporates building-integrated solar panels, batteries, and a prediction system for energy storage and use. The commission included creating a logo for the project (top left). Partner logos (bottom) were provided by the companies themselves.
