About Marte

 I am a Norwegian UI/UX designer & lettering artist living in Trondheim, Norway. I work as a digital designer at EGGS Design. 

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.

I've had my work published twice in the Typism Books; no. 4 & no. 6.  Here I am with my "Tumbleweed" piece from Typism Book 6. 

I occasionally host workshops in brush lettering too. Read more about that here.
