Torkel Dohmers Creative Operations

Above you’ll find a part of my historical project background, excluding confidential concept and research projects (fairly chronological order - newest first), mainly within transportation, architecture, interiors, product design, art projects, old graphics etc. This is forming the base or dna to upcoming research projects, commercial projects and experimental work. In short this is a brief work diary…

Activities

Using form and design to communicate and evoke, I am drawing up concepts, visions and scenarios within transportation, habitation/architecture, new technologies and anything intelligent improving life on this planet :) Striving to collaborate with inventors and visionaries alike to realise disruptive and evolutionary projects. With an obsessive side interest in shape, I am practising sculptural experiments that I take advantage of in many of my projects...

Ambitions

Three key words: progress, symbiosis and love! With ambitions to make the world a better and a more beautiful place, main objectives are working with solutions that will benefit people, environment and nature in some way, further to create a strong long lasting (loving!) relationship with the resulting product or service. I am nowadays more selective with involvement in projects - if there is no room for progress, sustainability or using morally correct and environmentally friendly materials, I’m basically out…


Background

Way back I started out as an engineer in electronics and computer technology then switched over to graphic design and advertising to further step up into the world of product and vehicle design (yes Peter Horbury, then Head of Design at Volvo Cars, played a role in this…). Now with a Master’s degree at Royal College of Art in London I am privileged having worked with some of the world’s most intelligent and innovative designers and individuals (including Jüri Kann, Marc Newson, Sir Clive Sinclair, Ora-Ito). Last few years I have spent as a Creative Director and designer for various clients as well as working with self initiated projects and research.

PS. The site of Torkel Dohmers is now celebrating 23 years on the web! (In 1993 people asked me why anyone would need to be on the internet… Huh ;-0
