Located in the Majorstuen district of Oslo The Norwegian Academy of Music is Norway’s largest music academy. It offers both undergraduate and post-graduate courses, has educated some of Norway’s most prolific musicians, and, according to Wikipedia, ‘attempts to lay the foundation for research within the various fields of music’.
Based around the concept of an ‘endless visual pulse’, design agency Neue developed a new generative logo system for the academy that takes the sounds of students practicing, the conversations of the cafeteria and the applause of the concert halls, and allows these to resonate through a number of graphic elements set above and below a horizontal line to form a responsive and geometric waveform.
Meteorologisk Institutt provides meteorological data to Norway’s military, civil services and the general public with the intention of safe guarding life, property and the environment. Design agency Neue developed a new visual identity solution for the institute that mixes geometric shapes, material and print choices and the humanistic and environmental detail of photography to achieve communicative and aesthetic contrast and capture the data drawn from the harsh Nordic weather and the impact its gathering has on the people of the country.
