Voices about Blekkmark Design Studio:
Andreas Grant - (Founder / Producer / Director) Alexander Little’
"I came in contact with Blekkmark for my feature film, currently in post-production, ’Alice’, in 2016, as I was looking for a graphic designer for the poster. Over the course of conversation he seemed to quickly grasp exactly what I was looking for. Blekkmark came up with an excellent first draft, and after a few, superficial, alterations to the original concept, we had a finish poster. I was impressed with his ability to ’read’ the idea of the film and present me with a look, which was different from what I would have imagined, while suiting the film perfectly. I found Blekkmark easy to work with; collaborative, humble, responsive and yet good at motivating his ideas and style choices. I would gladly work with him again."
Justin Jurman - (Cruel Season, Creative OPM)
"I have had the pleasure of working with Blekkmark on the artwork and layout design for three full length releases. Moving through these highly complicated processes as Producer and Band Member has been quite challenging. Knowing that Blekkmark had the artwork and layout design covered was such a great asset to the success of each release. But that is not where I found the most value from working with Blekkmark. In creative endeavors I have found that connection is key. Not only did I find connection with C.A., Blekkmark's Principal, but I found it with the artwork too. I was completely impressed with how the artwork was connected to the themes represented in the songs. That was visibly apparent, but when I asked a few pointed questions, I was blown away at the subtle cues in the artwork that weren't apparent at first glance. Blekkmark's attention to detail, passion, first rate work and deliverables sent on time and within budget is unsurpassed."
JONAS LANDT - (Forcentury)
“Blekkmark was a golden find in our search for a cover artist. Right off the bat, he got deep into the project - sketching and discussing directions for the artwork to go, and this was long before even mentioning fee. The process from start to finish was characterized by great professionalism, skill, and attentiveness to our wishes and ideas. The end result - obviously - knocked our socks off, and it came bundled with a lot of bonus artwork we used for booklet, magazine articles and web. Bottom line: We hope there’ll be another occasion, when we'll need his expertise. Thanks for a great cooperation!”
YAN LEVIATHAN - (Avian, Echoterra)
“I was fortunate enough to come across Blekkmark’ work when I was searching for an artist to design the booklet for our latest release “Land Of The Midnight Sun”. I could not be happier with Blekkmark’ work and was completely blown away when I received the finished product. He designed the booklet, CD, and Traycard exactly the way I had envisioned and he did it in a timely manner as was promised. His fees were extremely reasonable and the communication was excellent. I am throughly satisfied with how everything turned out and am looking forward to working with Blekkmark again in the very near future.“
JAN ÅKESSON - (StoneLake, Shadow Rain)
StoneLake has been working with Blekkmark Design Studio a number of years and have been very happy with the result each time. We have always been met with great professionalism and always got artwork that exceeded our expectations. Blekkmark has good prices and always keeps deadlines. He is also really easy to work with and takes great care in everything he does. We would easily recommend him to fellow musicians.”
GIULIO CATALDO - (Production manager Frontiers Records)
“I love to work with him … Blekkmark is one of the best and talented artists on the art for music-scene. Not only did he create several of Frontiers Records artworks in his career such as Brazen Abbot, Frederiksen & Denander, House of Lords, Kiske, Place Vendôme, Sunstorm and many more, but he’s also the most reliable, experienced, brilliant and affordable person to deal with along all the aspects of the artwork production. When we assign a job to Blekkmark, I can sleep peaceful, sure that he’ll come up with an astounding masterpiece just 2 or 3 days after …”
TORBEN ENEVOLDSEN (Fate, Section A, Fatal Force)
“I started working with Blekkmark in back in 2005, when he did the artwork for my third all instrumental album. I haven’t worked with anyone else since; which I think makes for a pretty strong statement in itself. What I love about working with Blekkmark in particular, is that he is just as careful and passionate about the creation of his artwork as I am about the creation of my music. It’s always nice to work with people with the same standards as one self and this has certainly been the case with Blekkmark. His ideas are always carefully thought out and no stone is left unturned in search for the perfect outcome. I recommend him strongly to anyone who wants to present their work in a very powerful way.”
