I am a Norwegian designer & lettering artist living on the south coast of England, where I work as a digital products designer at Etch.
And what is Epletyv?
“Epletyv” [ep:le tyv] is Norwegian and means “apple thief” — directly translated.
Growing up, my friends and I used to go scrumping for apples in the gardens around my neighbourhood. We learned where the best apples grew and which gardens that had the angriest owners. We had a get-away routine but also a handful of excuses for when that routine failed.
Today I pay for the apples I eat, but the name has stuck with me and is the name of my brand and online persona.
