I really value Astrid’s attention to detail and her determination to get the covers absolutely right. She has a fantastic eye and people always comment on the beauty of our book covers.
Jennifer Grigg, publisher, Green Bottle Press.
As an editor for a renowned publishing house in the UK I have had the immense pleasure of working with Astrid on a number of books. It is always exciting for me to see the way she approaches her designs right from the start, the probing questions she asks me, not only about the content but also about the author. In the course of our exchanges, the book becomes for her a living entity. To my mind, this is what makes Astrid’s designs so vividly alive. She is a wonderful designer who works entirely for the best possible outcome for each and every book in her care. It has been an enriching privilege for me to work with her.

Astrid of Økvik Design has been the sole dedicated graphic designer for our charity since it was first registered. She has designed our logo and a full suite of materials from forms through to posters and postcards. I have always found her approach to be very professional and she takes great care in her execution. I would recommend her services, regardless of the subject matter as she is extremely reliable as well as creative.
Angela Moss, trustee of Fomoe
Having worked successfully with Astrid on major publishing projects spanning nearly two decades it is an understatement to say she knows what she is doing. She is a perfectionist with a great eye for detail, with a natural gift for colour. It is always a pleasure to work with her.
Chris Tutaev, designer and illustrator
Astrid created almost the entire graphic identity and presence for our company in a sustained body of work over a decade. We were hugely fortunate in finding Astrid, whose wonderfully clear eye, natural Scandinavian taste, and great empathy with our underlying intentions translated the raw material with warmth and personality. An endless supply of brochures, flyers and corporate identity material crystallized for all of us the way we saw and thought about our company – a great gift.
