Hi there, my name is Jonas Lau Markussen.

The Viking Age has always fascinated me — especially the animal ornaments. I have more than ten years of experience working as a graphic designer and have a master's degree in architecture. Since 2016 I have studied the art of the Viking age persistently, familiarising myself with the intricacies of the art form and how to recreate it. You can find my research compiled into a handy guidebook breaking down each style to its essential components in an easy-to-understand and straightforward manner.
