Gustav Egerstedt


I'm inspired by people who go against the flow and do things they just have to, without really caring what others think.

Some years ago, after 20 years, I left my job at an advertising agency to start directing film, something which has been a dream since childhood.  I'm not an illustrator or anything, but I have nevertheless done some illustration projects before. One turned out so well that it was awarded for best illustration at the Swedish Design Prize a couple of years ago.
I like red wines with interesting bottles. Sometimes they taste good, and sometimes they are just nice to look at. I like to sit in a movie theater and watch a really awful scary movie with a glass of wine.
