A self-taught designer from Sweden, Jakob Trollbäck leads an innovative and highly successful company, creates seminal and award-winning designs, and is an acknowledged industry leader in branding and motion graphic design.
Springing forth from seemingly unorthodox beginnings, Trollbäck + Company was born when the former DJ transferred his aural pursuits to the visual medium, aiming to create emotive pieces that take their audiences to purely sensorial planes. Jakob’s ambitions quickly moved his company to the forefront of motion design. Currently in its eighth year, Trollbäck has successfully expanded its creative output to film titles including Oscar-winning Capote, TV-commercials, publication design, environmental design, music videos and short films. Clients include top TV networks CBS, AMC, HBO, TCM, TNT, and Sundance Channel; film companies HBO Films, Fox Searchlight and Miramax; and advertising clients Nike, Volvo, Fidelity, and Jaguar.
Trollbäck + Company has received dozens of creative-industry awards, including those from the Primetime Emmy Awards, AICP Show, Art Directors Club, Broadcast Designers Association, British D&AD, Communication Arts Design Annual, The One Show, and Type Directors Club, among many others. Currently, Trollbäck + Company is included in the 2006–2007 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Triennial.
