I am Sepidar Hosseini, a multidisciplinary Stockholm based graphic designer, illustrator and visual artist
with commissions as well as self-initiated projects, mainly within the cultural field. Together with
Moa Schulman I run the design duo 2typer since 2010 (website under construction). In 2015 we launched
BILD-ning – a “norm creative” research platform and podcast that highlights contemporary critical visual
communication in Sweden. Please let me know if you have any questions or want to collaborate!
