The creative content team will be responsible for all graphics that needs to be done, social media, videoes, pamphlets, and more.

2014 was the first time I joined Gigacon as a volunteer worker for Creative Content. I worked a lot during the event, with several immidiate short time deadlines. For example, there was an emergency assignment to create 36 signs for all the visitors. There were no clear signs to were people could find the nearest toilets, restaurants, etc. I managed to create all of them within ca. 2 hours before midnight, printed them out and handed them over to the managers. At the same time, I managed to reach my last buss home.

The Gathering

The Gathering is Norway largest gaming convention. I have volunteer worked for them from 2011 to 2014. Started as a Crew Care memeber(the team that takes cares of the other crews and visitors), Crew Care Logistics (same crew as before, but more responsibility within suppliments and goods), and Graphics Crew in the remaining years. I was also lucky to be chosen, and able to try out Medic Crew for a short period during the event.

In all of these years, I've learned a lot. I have designed several logos for the different crews, and one time for The Gathering itself in 2013. Created merchandise, interviewed Internet celebrities and contributed with the yearly magazine for the event too. This year, 2016, I will be helping a crew renew their logo.

University College of Hedmark

During my bachelor studies, in my second year, I volunteered and got chosen to contribute in the schools research work as a teachers assistent. This was to learn how we students could help others students evolve, and pass on our own knowledge. If there were other possibilites, hidden motivations or learning methodes we could use. Learned more about how it's like being a teacher, having responsibilities for 7-10 students alone, and giving reports at the end of the day or week to the teachers.
