Svend was fortunate to have traveled a lot over the years and in his youth. Svend’s main stomping grounds were New England and Europe – Denmark, Sweden, England, Germany, France, Italy, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, the Carribean, Mexico, etc. These travels gave Svend a great mindset for his future design pursuits by showing him, how many cultures and ways of life there are, on this great planet we live on. It inspired Svend to always have an open mind, think WAY outside the box, inside the box and bring creativity into all that he does.
Music has always been an important part of Svend’s life. One of Svend’s most influential jobs was working at a world class recording studio (SUNTREADER RECORDING STUDIO) where the classic album “Fool For The City” was recorded by the British 70’s rock group Foghat, as well as Arlo Guthrie’s – “Alices Restaurant”. From 1986 until 1992, Svend worked for New England Digital, creator of the most unique digital music instrument & digital recorder ever built – The Synclavier Digital Audio Workstation. While Svend was there, he had a varied list of jobs from Hardware Specialist, Software Specialist, Marketing & Graphic Design Coordinator, and Sales. Svend worked closely with some of the greatest artists of our time – Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler, Genesis, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Frank Zappa, The Cars, Michael Jackson, and many more of his musical heros. “The greatest thing about this company was that it allowed me to follow my passions and talents in any direction I wanted… even when it wasn’t in my “job description” – Svend. Svend’s last position with the company was in marketing and design, where he honed his skills that would come in so handy when Svend started Svend Design in 1993. This year marks Svend’s 24th year in business with no end in sight! Svend really loves what he does!
It’s been a great journey so far – and as they say, “it’s the journey that counts, not the destination”
