KIND tracked down mega babe and graphic super star in the making Hanna Kastl-Lungberg this week... She talks us through her colour ethos, stolen time & Beiber Fever. Her instagram feed @hanna.k.l is a must follow and her graphic palm prints are available to buy in a multitude of products from Society6 ...so you can go wild!
What is your background & how did you get here?/ I've been studying design for about four years now. Just general design without any specific focus. In early 2015 I realised I'm into graphic's and a few months later I started making graphic art which quickly got more popular than I could imagine. I started my own business earlier this year and I'm freelancing as a graphic designer and visual artist at the same time as I'm finishing my last year as a student to get a bachelor degree in fine arts.
Describe your design aesthetic?/ It's very colorful and I often find that my work looks like candy! I would say one part of my expression is very childish but when it comes to layout I turn to a more minimal approach. I also really enjoy making prints with plants, which is basically what I do the most.
Describe your colour ethos/ Color makes me so so happy, so I surround myself with it as much as I can!
What is your ultimate inspiration/ The art deco district in Miami looks like an inspo dream! I also wish I could go back to late 80s/early 90s and spend some time in California! That time and place would be so perfect and I'd be inspired enough to last a life time! Everything about that era inspires me for example all the endlessly amazing patterns! I'm really influenced by colorful houses and plants that I can only have inside but are normal outside vegetation in other places.
What is your mantra/ Act cool!
Which piece of jewellery can you not live without?/ I love minimal earrings. I have 6 ear piercings and I love to fill them with different small pieces.
What is the most thought provoking thing your saw/heard/read in the last week/ I've been feeling a lot recently that my time has been stolen. So I've been thinking about about how I never want to be the reason that someone else would feel the same way.
What song(s) are you listening to on repeat at the moment/Justin Bieber is coming to Sweden soon and I'm going (I'm a huge fan and I'm super excited!!!) so I'm just listening to all of his songs over and over and over again right now. This one specifically is often on repeat at the moment >>
