Rebecka Cardholm

Growing up, “creative” was not a word I used to describe myself. You would find me buried in a somber autobiography rather than playing house with the other kids at school. When playing make-believe I still kept it real and I always tried to stay in the lane when cruising the roads of racing video games. It was not until I grew up that I realized that I do in fact possess a great deal of creativity – it has just not been showcased in a typical manner. When other kids reached for their Crayola crayons, I explored the world of coding and photo manipulation and instead of writing music I became an early fan of the art of typography.

Today, I like to describe myself as a multi-talented overachiever. I loathe boredom and always keep busy exploring and understanding new areas of expertise. I love a challenge and is always up for trying something new. No matter what you would like my help with – I am here for you, and I will deliver with a cherry on top. Have a look around, browse what I have to offer and maybe even bring a piece of me home. Welcome!

We need to talk.

What you tell your clients is important; but what your clients think you’re telling them is even more important. To break through the noise, a post on Instagram needs to be as well written as an official press release. No matter who you want to talk to and what you want to say – I know how to get your message through.

Let's be real.

Looks matter. You want your wedding invitations to look romantic, your resumé professional and website fun, yet trustworthy. If you ask me, projects of every size (yes, even your dog’s birthday party) deserve a well-thought-out visual identity that keeps everything from your logo to the freebies you send out cohesive.

“No matter what challenge I throw at her, Rebecka quickly bounces back with a phenomenal outcome every single time. Through maintaining a balance between humble flexibility and self-confident decisiveness, her work flow stays autonomous without diverting from our original ideas and intentions. Her outstanding ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously and habit of continuously delivering high-quality results makes Rebecka an asset that no business should miss out on.”
 

Therése Lindgren on working with Rebecka Cardholm, 2020-2021

Rebecka played an important role in setting up my business. At first, I was only looking for someone who could help me create a beautiful logo. Soon I realized that Rebecka had a lot more to offer me as a self-employed newbie. She was very attentive to what I wanted while still giving her honest and professional opinion. I really appreciate the little things she would help me with: she proofread the first newsletter I wrote, she helped me with what type of overall impression I wanted to give with my website and she even suggested a much better choice for a color scheme. For me, it’s a done deal and I call her whenever I need help with anything concerning my business.”

Leon Edlund, founder of the charity online store King Exodus, on utilizing Rebecka Cardholm’s services

Rebecka has the gift of being both very creative but also organised, perhaps a very rare quality but a superb combination that suits our common projects perfectly. Always new great ideas but above all a cognizance about what actually already works well, and may not need to be adjusted. She is also very versatile & quick-thinking.”

What I do

Visual Design

     Let’s be real: looks matter. You want your wedding invitations to look romantic, your resumé professional and website fun, yet trustworthy. If you ask me, projects of every size (yes, even your dog’s birthday party) deserve a well-thought-out visual identity that keeps everything from your logo to the freebies you send out cohesive.

Digital Art

     Sure, there’s nothing like the feel  of graphite against a fresh, matte sheet of paper – but having the ability to make infinite versions of your design and use it  in any way imaginable comes pretty darn close. Posters, invitations, business presentations, e-mails … My art work is always delivered in multiple formats and variants ideal for web, print and branding.
