Hi, my name is Kristian Luoma. I’m an award winning and multidisciplinary Art Director based in Stockholm, Sweden. I believe good work comes from understanding my clients and creating ideas and expressions that stand out.

↓ Selected work

↓ Me
Concept and design. Digital and traditional. I’m a versatile and multidisciplinary art director with +10 years of experience. I’m passionate about coming up with the ideas that solves my clients communication needs and improves their businesses. I’m confident in presenting and selling my work and making clients feel confident through the process and I strive for creating long term relationships with them.

With the team I work with I own the work process from idea to finish and direct and collaborate with everyone involved in the project to see through that the work meets or excels the creative vision and the business goals.

The worst thing that can happen is that nothing happens. It’s my responsibility to create work that not only tells the right story, but also stands out.

Visuals are a big part of the communication. I’m hands on with design and typography and often enjoy designing my ads, web sites, keynotes etc myself. Early days of my career was mostly print design and final art, so I have it in my blood.

Naturally these days most of my work is interactive. Even more so after my education at Hyper Island. I have knowledge and understanding in html, css, ux and an interest in keeping up with social media and new technologies.

I live in Stockholm, Sweden. Besides working I love hanging out with my family, running (preferably for several days in a row in the Swedish mountains) and food.

↓ Recommendations

“I had the privilege to have Kristian on my team for 12 months. He’s a great creative with a big passion for ideas. On top of that he’s a great art director with the skills to make these ideas shine, with top notch executions. I recommend him highly.”

Gustav Egerstedt
Executive Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi Stockholm

“Kristian doesn’t just come up with strong creative conceptual ideas, he also always add great energy to the rest of the team. That rare combination is what makes him so great to work with.”

Rickard Villard
Founder at THE KIND COLLECTIVE,
former Executive Creative Director at Lowe Brindfors 


“Kristian is my former creative partner when we both worked at Lowe Brindfors. Now, when I have my own agency we have had him on mostly digital briefs. He is great to work with, fantastic knowledge of the digital world and he knows his craft, from idea presentation to final product. I can really recommend him to anyone that seeks world-class creative ideas within the digital landscape.”
