Established in 1948 and performing on roughly 200 stages, Riksteatret is the national touring theatre of Norway currently directed by actress and politician Ellen Horn. This month sees the launch of Riksteatret’s new visual identity created by multidisciplinary design consultancy Bleed. Based around the concept of a poster and executed as a smart expanding and contracting visual device, the identity creates an interesting border for the theatre’s posters, programmes and stationery with a modernistic egalitarian sense of inclusivity.
Onsagers is an Oslo based consultancy that specialises in the protection of intellectual property through patents, trademarks, design and law. Since its establishment in 1945 Onsagers has grown, aided by merger with Defensor in 1997, to become one of Norway’s leading IPR firms. Its new identity, developed by brand and packaging design agency Uniform earlier this year, is a simple but bold combination of a mono-line weight logo-type, icons and a striking, authoritative, white, black and bright yellow colour palette.
Resolve is a Norweigen provider of a broad selection of cleaning and restoration services to both the commercial and private clients covering asbestos removal, fire and water damage mitigation and ventilation cleaning. Their new identity, designed by Oslo based Neue, rejects that hard industrial aesthetics of the sector in favour of a softer, people led proposition.
