Goa Arkitektkontor by Heydays

Logo and stationery with black foil detail designed by Heydays for Oslo based architecture studio Goa Arkitektkontor

Goa Arkitektkontor is an Oslo based architecture studio, established in 2012 by Johannes Ludvigsen Goa, that provides planning, regulation and architectural design services. The studio has a philosophy that sees restrictions such as economy, building regulations and social attitudes as opportunities, believes in simplicity and, a little unusually, is not afraid to be banal. These ideas are neatly resolved through a new brand identity, which included a new logo, stationery set and leather folder, created by Heydays.

Based around a bold uppercase sans-serif logotype which expands to accommodate the changing dimensions of each printed piece, and a contrast of horizontal and vertical orientation, the solution mixes the functionality of architectural signage of the past with the themes of technicality, layout, measurable space and an absolute simplicity. The use of a black block foil, what I am sure is a decent stock choice and the luxury of a blind debossed leather wallet add a layer of detail and high quality to a predominantly typographic restraint.

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.
