¿A alguien le suena el grupo Millencolin? Si es así, te habrás fijado que todas las portadas suelen seguir una línea bastante parecida, eso es principalmente por que su guitarra Erik Ohlsson es el principal diseñador de todos sus discos, incluyendo el merchandising, el logo del grupo y multitud de carteles. Su estudio de diseño llamado Eckhouse Design, ubicado en Suecia, incluye trabajos de todo tipo que van desde logotipo, cartelería, ilustración y fotografía e incluso se mete en el terreno audiovisual.

A continuación un pequeño extracto sacado de la web donde su creador (Erik) habla un poco de lo que es Eckhouse Design:

Welcome to Eckhouse Design and parts of the portfolio of Erik Ohlsson.

Eckhouse Design is my company which I'm now slowly are starting up. Design has always been something I've done on the side of my music career as guitar player of Millencolin. The music career is still very much full on so that's why I'm starting up slowly, but the future goal is to really bring this company to a new level and expand.

Since I've been touring and traveling for the last twelve years, I've just accepted jobs that seemed fun every now and then and of course everything graphical for Millencolin. This is pretty much still the situation, but I will try to get the time to accept more jobs now to get this business really starting up.

My design range from drawing with ink to animated DVD menus and everything in between. Illustrations, print, merchandise, web design, digital photography and video, animation etc. I guess what I've specialized in the most is printed matters and logotypes.

Eckhouse Design use Apple Computers, Nikon digital SLR's, Sony DV cameras. Adobe illustration software and Apple motion software.

Como bien dice, el estudio está más ligado al diseño de logotipos y carteles:
