My name is Lasse Salling and I’m a senior graphic designer.
I live in Copenhagen (Frederiksberg), Denmark with my wife and daughter.
I’m currently working full time at Tivoli, but I’m available for freelance work from time to time at odd hours, so please get in touch.
I do HTML5 banners, photography, advanced photo retouching and print such as brochures, ads, outdoor, POS, banners, magazines, flyers and leaflets. But I also do 3D visualisation, Facebook tab pages, graphics for microsites and some basic motion graphics. Basically you can throw anything my direction and I’ll get it done. I’ve worked on small as well as big campaigns that have won both national and international awards.
In my spare time I’ve done plenty of application skinning and icon design, 3D visualisation and a little bit of motion graphics and webdesign as well. I’ve hand picked some cases in the Personal Work and Professional Work section to show the variety of things I do.
Other interests include listening to music, watching movies and TV shows, going to concerts, fine dining, cooking plus I’m a gadget and tech enthusiast. I watch a lot of tutorials too to improve my skills and gain knowledge and stay ahead of my game. I’m fluent in Danish and English.

3D Visualisation

3D renders can be used for anything: icons for apps and websites, product visualisation, TV and film production and anything else you can imagine. I can model and sculpt in Maya and ZBrush and deliver a final still image or model – also for 3D print. If you need animation I have a partner in crime to finish the job.

Interface Design

The skins, icons, websites and banners in my portfolio shows a variety of styles and techniques that reveals a broad range of appealing looks I can create – whether it’s for computer software, websites, banners, mobile or tablet apps.

Photo & Print

Photo retouching is one of my major competences. I do retouching, color adjustment, cut outs, recreation of hair and general manipulations. I do stuff for print everyday as well – so any format, any job I can do.

Mad skills and bad skills

I use a range of various software on a daily basis. Some more than others. Some I know better than others.
Some I would like to know better, so I practice. I like using them all, well except Office.

Adobe

I spend most of the time using one of the apps from Adobe CC. As a final artist I’m mostly familiar with Photoshop and InDesign, but I do use some of the other apps too.

3D

It’s no secret I love making 3D still images. It’s comprehensive and complex stuff though, so I’ve focused on modeling, texturing and rendering still images. Rigging and animation is not something I’m overly familiar with.
