Kyrö is a Finnish distillery, housed in a former dairy in the region of Isokyrö, that will yield a high quality 100% rye whisky in 2017 for national and international markets and currently batch produces a root variety for cocktails. Design studio Werklig was hired by the distillery to create their brand identity, which went on to include a logotype and custom typeface, business cards and packaging designs with inlaid paper and foil detail, that would “reflect whisky culture but also the distillery’s local roots and heritage”.
Løgismose is a Danish food company that produces and retails its own brand range of delicacies including wines, chocolates, cordials, olive oils and nuts.
The company’s brand identity and packaging, created by Homework, neatly juxtaposes the detail of historic, etched, illustrative stock depicting the company’s residence at Løgismose Castle, contrasts traditional serif flourish with a more recent sans-serif reduction, and utilises a silver foil print finish, plenty of unprinted space and the canvas texture of the brand values book, to resolve provenance, heritage and high quality with a contemporary restraint.
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.
