Design services

Outspoken Images specialises in simple illustrations: We make complex ideas easy to understand.

Here’s how it works: We’ll have an initial consultation, where you give me your ideas, hopes, and thoughts. I’ll do some research and give you an estimate. When we’re both happy with the scope of the project (timescale, price, expectations), we’ll sign a contract. One-half of the amount is due before designing begins. I usually provide two or three initial ideas and we’ll find one that works for you. I’ll keep you updated on the work as I go (preferably by email). One or two revisions are included, anything above this usually brings an additional fee. Once the design is finalised, the second payment is due. Upon receipt of payment, you’ll receive print- and digital-ready files. I retain rights to use the work in my portfolio.

Smart Nærstrøm system illustration

Marketing illustration

Smart Nærstrøm creates smart energy industrial systems. Research scientists at Institutt for energiteknikk contracted me for an illustration that visualised a how a system works. The illustration can be presented whole or as individual icons.

It’s in active use throughout Norway: .

Pencil drawing

Journal cover illustration
United Kingdom

The Laser Chemistry, Spectroscopy & Dynamics Group at University of Bristol contracted me for journal cover artwork. I created a pencil drawing to visualise the planes on which molecules move within the reaction. Digital molecule artwork was created by Thomas J. Preston. The final illustration was approved by technical editing boards and accepted as cover artwork .


Marie laget illustrasjoner til vårt forskningsprosjekt “Smart Nærstrøm”. Hun laget en god og lettforståelig fremstilling av et komplekst prosjekt, og vi er svært fornøyd med hennes arbeid. Hun var også lydhør og enkel å samarbeide med gjennom hele prosessen.

Marie was contracted by my employer on two separate graphic design projects, one large and one small, and I was one of the main contact points for the work. In both cases, she was everything one expected of a professional: timely, responsive, and delivered quality results consistently. Communication with a graphic designer is an important factor to a successful project, and she was both thorough and patient as we iterated through vision, sketch, design, and discussion. All in all, she is a capable and hard-working graphic designer who treats her projects with seriousness and enthusiasm.
