Introducing: Linnea Austrum
What brings you to Capsule?
The last 10 years of my career I’ve worked for in-house design teams, and as fun as that was, I always wondered what agency life would be! I’m excited for the variety and new experience.
Tell us about how you became interested in design!
Growing up, I would always cut out cool typography or fun pictures from magazines and “design” the front of my notebooks. I didn’t really know at the time that could turn into a career but in college after disliking my original major, I took a few art classes and fell in love with design. Best decision I’ve ever made!
