Today is Ingvar Kamprad’s 90th birthday. I am in a photostudio in Ã„lmhult documenting an ikea bathroom for a web based project. And I am getting sentimental.
WhenÂ I moved back to Sweden from England I started workingÂ atÂ ikea in Ã„lmhult as an art director. My portfolio was a mix of experimental college work from Central Saint Martins and work I had done for a number of musicians and book publishers. They hired me at face value.
Now days I am lucky to do consultancy work for ikea.Â And am forever grateful for all good this company has brought me.
Thank You Ingvar.
