HELLO, I AM BARBARA!
And this is VÄN.
Since i was little i have been fascinated by lines, shapes and colors and how to combine them to a complete new whole. A couple of years later, i´m still fascinated. And now i call it design. And i call it my profession.
VÄN is swedish and means friend. I believe design can and should be like a friend. Communicating, understanding, encouraging and activating you moving from passive to getting where you´re supposed to be.
If somebody asks why swedish, well, i´ve always had a preference for the clear and minimalistic scandinavian way of design.
