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.

Josefine Selj, Research scientist; Institutt for energiteknikk (IFE), Norway

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.
