Michael Bo Jensen

Multidisciplinary illustrator and designer living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Michael creates work for print, screen, and physical space. His main focus is on editorial illustration, brand illustration, visual identity, logo design, graphic design, typography, packaging, and murals. But you might find something more...

His personal work often examines the eternal relationship between humans and nature. Depicting the meeting between the two. Nature within the manmade urban landscape and within us, breaking free. Or the other way around, humans or manmade objects submerged within nature. Emphasizing the everlasting presence of nature's unbreakable bond most of us tend to forget and not even see in our daily lives in the city.

Michael is well known for his captivating universe, dynamic linework and eye-popping details. The style is authentic yet timeless and imbued with mystery.

After graduating in 2008 Michael worked mainly with illustration, graphic design and art direction. He made artwork for a multitude of established brands and organizations such as Volvo, Copenhagen Metro, Novo Nordisk Foundation and M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark.
