Art & design director at norwegian skateboard magazine, Dank. Co-founded together with Aksel Overskott and Eirik Traavik in 2011. Dank is distributed all over Norway as well as a growing number of international retailers.
Dank is a collaborative effort by graphic designer Jørn Aagaard, assistant editor Aksel Overskott and editor-in-chief Eirik Traavik. The project started in fall 2009, when we were all fed up with reading for exams and began to play with the thought of making a gritty fanzine about skating. We’d all skated for over ten years, and were working in journalism and graphic design on a freelance basis when not studying. We thought it could be a fun project to work on, and figured that the zine would provide an excellent excuse to throw a couple of releaseparties.
