Folke Patron

I am Folke Patron. Unfortunately, my Work Section isn't entirely done just yet. But if you scroll down a bit, you'll find a few sneak peeks of what I've done the last few years.

Psst. A new website in
Swedish and English is in the making and will launch in the summer (ish) of 2017. Until then, check out Folke Patron's Instagram: @folkepatron

FOLKE PATRON just got a new logo for 2017. Basically it’s the initials with a dot after each letter (F.P.). However, to emphasize the basics of graphic design, rather than making it about the initials, the logo was made out of geometric shapes.

OFFICIAL PATCH of Folke Patron. The Raven symbolizes my hometown, Uddevalla, as well as danish line ”vær venlig” (Uddevalla once belonged to Denmark). The three smaller symbols is mainly what Folke Patron is all about: feminism/social justice and love and joy.

FOLKE SANS is a font I am currently working on. It's a mix between Helvetica, Gill Sans and Futura.

THE FACES of Folke Patron and his creator, Dennis Johansson.

Selected work

2012 — 2017

FAIR SEX ILLUSTRATIONS RealStars, an organization working to put an end to trafficking and unfair sex, wanted a few illustrations to their Instagram channels @kimrealstars and @realstars_eu. I will talk a little bit more about this when the new website has launched. Meanwhile, Folke Patron encourage you to join the fight and support RealStars!

GÖTEBORGS SYMFONIKER Work Folke Patron did for Gothenburg Symphony's school concert ”Tant Blomma rymmer från sin kruka” (”Aunt Flower Escapes Her Pot”) by Kristina Lugn, 2016. Folke Patron also did illustrations for ”The Snowflake” and ”On foot”.

LOGOTYPE for “Cykelmusteriet” in Gothenburg, Sweden.

HIP HOP COLLECTIVE Raw Vibe Entertainment's logotype is drawn by Folke Patron while listening to some nice beats (Skoob & Anoya on Spotify)!

UDDEVALLA GOES RAINBOW In 2015, Uddevalla arranged their first LGBT pride festival. The task was to bring a symbol, a logo, that would not only appeal to the common people, but also the politicians. The solution was a heart, with the city's beloved bridge integrated in it (see: bottom left).

PRIDE LAGER You simply can't have a party without something nice for the throat*. “Pride Lager” was a collaboration between “Uddevalla Goes Rainbow“, local pub “Varvet“ and brewery “Grebbestad Bryggeri“. Folke Patron made the design.

*A non-alcholic drink was also made.

UDDEVALLA is my hometown. It's located just by the sea and is over 500 years old. During that time, it has burned down 6 times and changed nationality 7 times (Danish, Norweigan and Swedish).

GIRAFF is part of Uddevalla municipality's “Kultur och Fritid” which gives support to young people between 13-26 who wants to realize their ideas. They needed some new designs for their information material. We agreed to do it in a punk fanzine maneer.
