Hanna's Voice:
Real Lives.
Real Moments

On September 3, 2004, Hanna's life took a tragic turn when her first love, Magnus Iversen, a passionate photographer, passed away unexpectedly at Oslo Central Station due to an undiagnosed heart condition.

 

​At 19 years old, she was left with the task of rebuilding her life from scratch, and in the process also forming her new narrative voice with grief as a backdrop.

Out of her experiences, a new, empowered storyteller emerged, finding strength, growth, laughter and purpose through her writing.

"To me, writing isn't about the perfect sentences. It's about the raw truth and sometimes chaotic reality of being human. In each story, I aim to show what life is —the ups, the downs, and the quiet moments that often go unnoticed.”

Hanna’s professional journey
- Bridging Digital and Creative Worlds

Even though Hanna's roots are in journalism and her early passion was storytelling, working in different roles in tech and media, allowed her to explore the intersections between storytelling, commercial strategies and technological advancement, showcasing her ability to bridge creative processes with digital and technological innovation.

She has played an essential role in guiding businesses through their digital transformation journey, fostering a culture of innovation and adaptability.

 

However, beyond data, insights and technology, Hanna's true calling lays in the art of storytelling - a passion that eventually led her back to writing and then - the founding of BHANK! Studios.

Throughout her corporate journey, Hanna's heart have been true to her creative roots and her passion for writing and photography remained constant throughout the years.

Her writing is real, raw, honest and authentic, with a touch of kindness and nerdy curiosity, and she continues to be an advocate for the power of storytelling in affecting positive change.

​Hanna's experience across various sectors has given her a unique perspective, enabling her to tell stories that resonate in today's digital world.

 

However, despite her know-how in the digital space, Hanna possesses a deep-rooted desire to return to the traditional reading-experience only found in print and physical books.

 

In this quick-scroll era, dominated by clickbait and short headlines, she strongly believes there's a significant need for long-form storytelling, and she’s urging readers to reconnect with the analog world.

With each project, Hanna is committed to bringing authenticity and innovation to the forefront, ensuring that every story told under the banner of BHANK! Studios not only captivates but also leaves a lasting impression in the world of storytelling.

"Books offer an environment for reflection and understanding that digital formats often miss.

Books allows us to pause and absorb, and they create a deeper connection between writer and reader than digital stories are able to do."

Hanna B. Kristoffersen, Founder, Head Writer and Editor-In-Chief at BHANK! Studios
