Welcome onboard my Essence Rocket!

This is a great place to put your CTA that you have been building towards in your video.



I am a trained architect with experience from various design studios and engineering companies. Over time, I found that the truly creative aspect was missing, and when I was really close to withering away, I decided to start my own business, so I could put my skills into play and help companies promote their communication visually.

My company "Tanke til Streg" ("Thought to Line") I started in 2014.

In 2023 I changed the name to "Lise Grastrup - The Highlight Studio."

"Why? Because I want to focus on what I can really do: highlight the essence of your messages, cut to the core, read between the lines of what is being said.

To highlight! 


We create the Essence-Rocket together

The rocket gets your message and you (your company) into space, it's energetic, alluring and blasts through the sound barrier!

What does a service or product look like? It can be a drawn info-video, a drawn report, a poster or a course in graphic facilitation, where you learn to express yourself and communicate visually/ graphically.


Pseudo-involvement ends here!

I have seen far too much pseudo-involvement out in the companies and too many projects that could have been solved more excitingly and creatively if the sender had focused more on involving the employees AND involved someone like me earlier in the process.

You get a package solution in me: I am the skills that should be drawn into the engine room as early as possible in the process.

Why? Because I have both the hard and the soft skills, as I, somewhat squarely, choose to label them. Structure and analysis as well as development of creative visual products, as I listen between the lines and create reassurance while maintaining the necessary overview.

It gives you the best process and the best rocket result ;)

How do I work?

I'm always focused on exploring what is required to solve your specific challenge or task in the most beneficial way. Together we find the best solution.

Situations and understanding of the issue at hand can change during the process and I pride myself of being flexible and keep my eye at the ball to ensure you will benefit the most from the service or product.

My idea

Drawings are amazingly powerful for enhancing engagement and ownership among your employees, and the purpose of my work is therefore to highlight your company's ideas, visions etc, to visual and memorable presentations.

I provide the fertile soil in which your business projects can grow sustainably and successfully. And having fun while doing it!

The power of unique

The primary services are graphical recordings, animated info-films and courses in graphic facilitation. 

Furthermore, I provide illustrations for presentations, reports and newsletters. Customized drawings especially curated for the specific purpose obviously hold a much bigger power than  illustrations from random imagery stocks.


In a crazy and wild, noisy world, your business needs to communicate clearly and in a way that is remembered. Illustrations support and highlight your company's focal points, who you are and what you are working to achieve.

AND: They make it easier to work towards your common goal. In the Essence-Rocket, you fly into space and radiate your messages clearly.

6 new assistents in the company

After 10 years as a solo freelancer, it is healthy to draw some extra skills into the company, so here is my new crew: 6 unique assistants, each with their own special approach and characteristics. They will help me see things from several angles, and they will eventually have a clear role, and you will experience them in several different places...;)
