Stockholm-based creative Tekla Evelina Severin shares her office oddities with OnOffice
As a photographer, multidisciplinary designer and colourist, Tekla Severin knows a thing or two about colour. We caught up with Severin to discuss what, where, when, why, who and how she likes to work.
What are your desk staples?
Block paper tower – for to do’s – and a nice pen to hand (having a ballograf with chain would be ideal!).
Where do you prefer to work?
It depends on the situation – when editing definitely at a desk to be able to focus. When emailing or in early phases, I love being in other spaces; cafes, museum areas etc.; places with slow movements and people’s company at a distance.
When are you at your most productive?
I’m definitely not a morning person by nature. Even if I have adjusted, so I would probably say I’m at my most effective in the afternoon – after lots of coffee! Or even in the evening for ideas.
Who are three of your favourite artists or photographers?Oh, that’s a tough one as there are so many out there! I love Karin Mamma Andersson, Erin O‘Keefe and Hayley Eichenbaum.
How do you like to work?
Alone but in collaboration – and with a brief – but always with creative freedom!
Where can we follow you?
