Striptind designed by Neue

Logo designed by Neue for Norwegian deep sea fishing experience Striptind.

Striptind is a provider of guided deep sea fishing experiences based in the Artic surroundings of Kjøllefjord Norway. Their new minimal identity designed by Neue (known for their interactive Visit Nordkyn work) was inspired by the exclusive nature of halibut and the prospect that there is ‘always a bigger fish to be caught’.

I am really inspired by work from Nordic countries, they seem to have a great gift for simple and iconic identity work often showing great restraint that delivers a powerful and relevant aesthetic. Neue’s work for Striptind follows a similar philosophy. The geometric fish logo mark could be seen as rudimentary but within the context of the brand through colour and photography it takes the characteristics of a premium experience. Where once I saw triangles and squares I now clearly see the fish and this is reinforced in its application as a pattern across stationary and animated on-line. The typography feels like a suitable choice with interesting little flourishes and details across the ‘R’ ‘N’ ‘D’ that contrast well against a bold and simplistic logo-mark and deliver a sense of undulating motion, the ‘S’ does suffer from a slight imbalance but this is only a tiny criticism. Overall this is a really strong and crisp visual structure that captures the very nature of the environment and the potential quality of fish that inhabit the Barents Sea.

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.
