Michael Bo Jensen
Illustrator and graphic designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Michael work with mixed media in any scale. While his main focus is on illustration and visual identity, he also do projects for murals, packaging, architectural decoration, way-finding and exhibition design.

He worked with a multitude of established institutions and brands such as Copenhagen Metro, Novo Nordisk Foundation, Volvo and M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark to name a few. Recently “The Dream Ship” at Maritime Museum of Denmark was nominated for a Danish Design Award 2020, in the category Better Learning.

His personal work often depicts the meeting between human and nature through juxtapozing manmade objects and natural elements, shapes and patterns. Michael exhibited work in Denmark and Sweden. Walking the streets of Copenhagen you might find one of his murals in the Danish capital.
