NOWHERELAND is an illustration studio in Copenhagen founded by Signe-Lill Valkvæ and Trine Løgstrup, both educated from Kolding School of Design. We work broadly with different types of projects, but always with illustration in focus:

We work closely with our clients to create the right murals for their needs. Our goal is always to paint something with a personal touch suited to the specific site.

Interactive art experiences for children
We´ve developed and created several art projects for children, including the Nowhereland Children´s art festival, the theater performance Make-Believe with Me and Street Art for Children in the city of Roskilde. These projects are developed with a focus on co-creation and with the vision of making high-quality art experiences for children.

Teaching and workshops
Through the years we´ve developed tailor-made teaching courses and workshops in everything from stop-motion to street-art. We are experienced teachers, especially when it comes to helping children of all ages try out new ways of artistic expression and to create their own world. Read more about our stop-motion workshops here.
