WHo released the Kraken?
Hi, I’m Leanne Marie Kolpin and I’m the mammal behind Krakenwork. I am an American artist & designer and I live in Aarhus, Denmark with my lovely Danish husband Nicki T. Hansen.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Tennessee Technological University. I have worked with many different mediums including glass, metal, ceramic, and printmaking. Part of this education also included art history.
After moving to Denmark, I went to school for Multimedia Design at the Business Academy of Aarhus. There I learned various design practices, iterative development, content marketing, and campaign planning. I have extensive knowledge and experience with many Adobe Programs and pick up new programs quickly.
Clear benefits of working with me:
- I work well both on a team or on my own.
- Although I have a creative background, I put usability first.
- I am always excited to learn new things.
- At the end of the day, I’m just another enthusiastic pop culture nerd who wants to work on exciting projects.
