Maiken knew from an early age that she wanted to work with “fun ideas”. This interest has been expressed in different forms, such as pranking her neighbors and prank calling her teachers during her teenage years ( all still hobbies though). To her neighbor's relief, she moved from Stockholm to San Francisco in 2017 to study advertising. Luckily, her crazy ideas have been more appreciated here.
After graduating from the Academy of Art she joined MUH-TAY-ZIK / HOF-FER with her partner, Karolina. Together they are a creative team known as “The Swedes”. During their first week at the agency, they held a crash course in Swedish swearing which immediately changed the office environment as everybody started calling each other “skitstövel” (shit boot) and "rövhatt" (ass hat). Maiken may seem small (5′ 2″), but don’t be fooled. “Surprisingly big power in a very small body” is her most common description.
When Maiken isn't creating at MUH-TAY-ZIK / HOF-FER, you either find her working on increasing the external power at Equinox, singing ABBA songs at Karaoke bars or watching Swedish reality shows.
