Elin Hjulström Lord

Let me start by telling you: I love stories! Be it history, comics, movies, books or the story behind a single illustration. This interest is what fuel my illustration work – as you are bound to notice when you browse my portfolio – whether the outcome is comics, book illustrations, record cover artworks, or posters and graphic profiles for music festivals.

I also run Studio Lord together with my husband, which provides graphic design, websites, books and logotypes, as well as being a subcontractor in the animation industry. We also offer art-oriented workshops for libraries, museums and art schools, and have given lectures for The association of Swedish illustrators and graphic designers.
