Mathias Vestergaard Corp.

Creative Misfit

In the making_

Published on February 22nd, 2015


Over a lifetime I am gradually discovering, developing and refining my own practice for thinking clearly while making creative projects happen. I currently use it as a Learning Designer at Hyper Island, to help others do the same, as they are taking on huge challenges, transforming products, companies, industries and cultures. You can learn more about how to think clearly and get the free handwritten newsletter at

This website is an archive of the many projects that were all part of my journey towards this. It was a long and messy journey that took me through many different creative challenges.



I was born Mathias Vestergaard Jakobsen, but used only Mathias Vestergaard until 2014 when I switched to Mathias Jakobsen.

Portrait of Mathias Jakobsen shot in Brooklyn, New York 2015. Born in 1985 as Mathias Vestergaard Jakobsen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

I’m not kidding_

I believe I can change the world and I want to die trying. Mathias Vestergaard Corp. is my personal umbrella organization for my projects and activities. It is founded on the vision of making the world a better place for everyone, myself included, of course.
