Meet The Designer
ViSSEVASSE was founded in 2013 and launched Langebro as the first city poster. With its references to 1930s poster artists and the mint/turquoise colors of the era, it set the tone for the upcoming collection of posters featuring landmarks from Danish and European cities.
‘We see the posters striking a nostalgic chord with the audience, as they are reminded of the summer holidays of their childhood when they see the poster of the caravan in the Danish landscape – or of the skiing holiday in Norway when they see our interpretation of the snow-covered mountains,’ says Karsten Noel.
Dorthe Mathiesen always visits the selected places with her camera to get the perspective, the angle and the visual first-hand impressions in place before returning to the studio to draw the posters, layer by layer. The entire process, from the original idea to the finished result, is often enriched by informative and inspiring stories about places that carry special meaning to people. ViSSEVASSE communicates personally with the users in social media, where people generously share their memories. This serves as a source of inspiration for Dorthe Mathiesen when she draws.
’Many have encouraged me to make a poster from their city or country, and some people have written to tell me that I misspelled the abbreviated names of the cities. But there is a graphic point to it. The abbreviations are about visual balance and a mental gimmick – you think you’re reading something else, because you’re used to seeing the name of the city spelled like that,’ Dorthe Mathiesen explains.
ViSSEVASSE is Dorthe Mathiesen and Karsten Noel, who have worked for the past 20 years in the combined field of fashion, production design and graphic design.
