Tegn_03 is a Norwegian, multidisciplinary, architectural design studio that, through inclusive methods, process-oriented and competent project management, deliver holistic solutions that encompass the fields of architecture, planning and landscape, to large clients across Scandinavia. Their visual identity, developed by Neue, draws together the themes of technical knowledge, structure, connections, collaboration and creativity through neutral typography, a modular and expanding geometric pattern, tactile and reflective print finishes, ample white space and the more unusual, playful addition of colour and the engagement of an interactive image generator.
Filmfaktisk is a Norwegian team of film producers – with a strong focus on locations – that produces both commercial and fictional pieces work. Their visual identity, created by Oslo-based design agency Heydays, cleverly appropriates the physical realities and limitations of sign making and turns it into a positive and distinctive asset that visualises – through a simple line detail that connects the stems and the tittles of the i’s and a stylised single colour finish to the texture and detail of on-site, sign photography – a practical but creative approach to on-location shooting. It is a very simple treatment but one that brings a proprietary quality to a familiar sans-serif typeface that cohesively binds print, film and digital touch-points.
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.
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.
Commando Group is an Oslo based, multi-disciplined, visual communications agency. Towards the end of last year the group embarked on a rebranding exercise replacing their previous running horse logo-mark and script logo-type with a simple, geometric head, utilising chess as an analogy to deliver a clearer, less superflous and more authoritative brand message.
Raconteur delivers high-quality web productions and advertising campaigns and is the company of Oslo based web developer and programmer Christoffer Einarsrud. The company’s new identity, created by independent freelance designer Christian Bielke, communicates Raconteur’s personal and professional approach and an attention to detail with a hand drawn script logo-type, technological iconography and a serif corporate typeface.
Tjuvholmen Sjømagasin is a Norwegian grilled seafood restaurant owned by the Fursetgruppen group and located waterside in an area under redevelopment just outside the Aker Brygge region of Oslo. The restaurant’s identity, designed by Work In Progress, reflects the architectural theme ‘a play with water’, the high quality and delicate flavours of the food with fines lines, an undulating custom logo-type and symbol.
Fjordland is a Norwegian food producer specialising in ready meals, dairy products and deserts. As part of a continuing relationship Oslo based brand strategy studio Strømme Throndsen Design was commissioned to rebrand and repackage Fjordland’s ‘Snarveien till..’ range creating a series of hand drawn and water coloured illustrations, a script logo-type and bold typography to visualise the quality of the ingredients.
Aker Brygge is a waterside district at the heart of Oslo currently under redevelopment. As part of this, design agency Bleed worked alongside and collaboratively with property developers, architects, landscape architects and exterior lighting designers to bring together and brand this new vision due to be completed in 2015.
