Inspired by an eclectic career as a visual artist, cultural attaché and creative journalist working for international publications, political organizations and innovative projects, MARLO SAALMINK decided to focus on pensive brand development processes. As a creative director, lecturer and brand strategist, he works with a curated selection of international designers, schools and magazines. Their atelier is based in Bergen, Norway, along the rugged fjords. After living in large metropoles such as Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin, he now aims to embrace a more reflective sense of space and communicative devotion. The Nordic hemisphere allows for such pristine design reflection. Furthermore, it serves as a fascinating backdrop towards the inception of creative fashion processes.
