Siv Sivertsen

Founder & Partner & Chairman of Sooo

Siv Sivertsen (born 1973) is a multifaceted creative force with a rich background in visual communication, photography, design, and cultural entrepreneurship. Her journey unfolds as a pioneering female photographer in Stavanger's advertising industry, and her diverse talents have spanned photography, graphic design, and even jewelry design.

Siv studied Visual Communication with a focus on Photography and Graphic Design at the Edinburgh College of Art. As the first female photographer in Stavanger's advertising landscape, she established her own studio. Siv has published four compelling books, with a fifth in progress, and her work has been showcased in numerous solo exhibitions and collaborative performances.

In 2001, Siv clinched the prestigious National Goldsmith competition, earning acclaim for "The Land of the Ocean," a groundbreaking necklace blending silver, acrylic glass, and silver. This achievement marked a testament to her innovative approach and keen eye for design.

Driven by her passion for culture and community, Siv ventured into the hospitality scene, founding Sandnes Brygge and Stills Café. These establishments became hubs for quality food, cultural events, concerts, and art. In 2008, Siv, along with her partner, received the Commune Honor Awards for their outstanding cultural contributions. Her impact was further recognized with a nomination for The Quadruple Jump Award in Stavanger in 2010.

In 2017, Siv embarked on a new chapter by founding Sooo. Creative Communication. The venture took a sustainable turn in 2020 after a transformative encounter with Teddy. Siv's commitment to environmental and social responsibility became ingrained in the Sooo. brand ethos.
