Seiland House designed by Eirik Gihle

Logo designed by Eirik Gihle for hotel and conference centre Seiland House

Seiland House is a hotel and conference centre in the north of Seiland Island off the coast of Norway where visitors can experience its glaciers and northern lights. A former boarding house and school, Seiland House has recently undergone a re-brand by Norwegian based designer Eirik Gihle who has captured the essence of the islands countryside.

The shape of the logo-mark is based on a grid inspired by local traditions and culture, combined with the angular typographical choice it really expresses the cold, fresh, Nordic environment. The representation of the northern lights is very well executed both conceptually and technically and is immediately identifiable with this part of the world. The printed collaterals blend a cool crisp logo-mark and illustrated knitted patterns (a nice personal touch) with a modern colour palette resulting in an intelligent, thoughtful brand experience that suitably reflects the hotel’s proposition.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
