Parole

Website & Identity

Parole describes contemporary phenomena through the eyes of design; design as discourse, design as intentions, design as materialized manifestations of ideas.

Designing is not only the act of creating timeless beauty and functionality, in late capitalism, it is the business of materializing dreams, desires and fears of consumers. And as such we, designers, must reevaluate our self-image.

Parole publishes design critique through the website parole.cc, news about publishing schedule and other events can be followed via the Newsletter, Instagram or Facebook.

Collaboration with:
Gustav Holst Kurtzweil.

Off License Cash Only

Exhibtion Design

Off License Cash Only is the exhibition presenting works by Oliver Sundqvist and Frederik Nystrup-Larsen during Chart Art Fair 2019 as part of the V1 Gallery. The exhibition consisted of newly created works by the artists, sold only during this time. Jointly the exhibition design, catalogue and poster functioned as mimicry of an isolated consuming event, mirroring a much larger picture.

Hilda Hellstöm

Website & Identity

Hilda Hellström is a Swedish interdisciplinary artist, working in the intersection of art and design. When creating the website for Hilda, we wanted to emphasize the archival feeling through the functionality and navigation of the site, and at the same time put a focus on her wide range of work.

It is located at Bellahøj, a historical suburb to Copenhagen, where the first high houses where built in Denmark in the 50s.

Pavilion Nordico

Identity

Pavilion Nordico is a newly established art center and residency in Buenos Aires, Argentina, opening in early 2019. It focuses on cultural workers and artists from the Nordic countries and offers a connection to the art scene in Argentina and public events across the globe. The visual identity takes inspiration from a dot on a map, and playfully making references with the map as we want to create connections between people, places, cities, countries and so on.

Opéra Sport

Identity

When commissioned to draw the logo for the newly started fashion brand, Opéra Sport, we wanted to play around with these two contrasting words. By joining the serif and the grotesk together, the result became a solid unity underlining the aesthetics ideals of the brand, of mixing the worlds of high and low. The label creates garments from recycled silk, aiming for a sustainable industry.

Drama Antologi

Book

The publishers “Kronstork” and “Drama” have teamed up to publish an anthology of newly written danish drama. This cooperation reflects the desire, that the dramatic text usually used for an act could also be read as literature. In the design, we have worked with the thought of the anthology as division, but at the same time as a combination. The cutting of the text on the book's edge – combines the book as a whole and illustrates the different chapters.

Nyhederne på Betty

Posters

Posters for “Teater Tugt”. A new theater format that challenges the framework for news dissemination and the current perception of the theater medium. Twice a month, “Teater Tugt” invites you inside the “Betty Nansen” foyer for an evening of topical news. The posters have aesthetic references to tabloids and newspapers headlines. For each new show, a new headline was added to the poster. The poster itself became a comment on mass media's constant volatility.

#Equilibrium

Magazine

# is a concept magazine, each edition with a different theme. The first issue, Equilibrium, deals with the idea of gender equality. Equilibrium means equality and balance, in this context interpreted from a feministic discourse. It contains texts written by theorists and philosophers but also more accessible pop-cultural references of being a feminist. The magazine is printed on a classical newspaper and it works as a module system where each side also functions as an A2 poster. The illustration is based on the idea of the balance of yin yang, working with materiality as well as a photo collage. All text is set with female type designer Suzanna Licko’s font, Filosofia.

Binoculars and Chairs

Website

Binoculars and Chair is the creation of creative consultant Birgitta Nellemann, based in Copenhagen. When designing the visual identity and webpage, we had in mind a clean and subtle yet elaborate look, that would bear Birgitta’s message of creating vibrant and beautiful spaces and design solutions.

Orissa Biblioteket

Book

"Orissa Biblioteket” (Orissa Library) is a tribute to the Swedish poet Ola Julén, who wrote the original Orissa. In “Orissa Biblioteket,” four poets have written an interpretation of the original work. Together the four books create the title. A library can only exist with more than a few books.

X

Book

“X” is written by the danish writer Henrik Kabell. With his harsh imagination, he creates a poetry collection that depicts a dystopian mood. X is a sequence of nine sections. We’ve worked with the cover and book design to reflect this mood of frustration, hatred and indignation.

Cecilie Engberg

Website

The web design for the fashion designer Cecilie Engberg, reflects the eclectic aesthetics in her design. The aim of the website is both showing final products, runway shots were well as images of the design process. We settled on working with a style of photo collages. The photo collage in this way, provides room for a big aesthetic difference in the pictures, from photoshoots of the model to early process drawings.

Natfolden

Book

“Natfolden” is a poetry collection written by the danish journalist Knud Brix. “Natfolden” is written on Christiansborg, the Danish parliament, on the shadow side of the tv camera. It is a fictional portrait of the castle and the people there. “Natlfolden” deals with politics, journalism, power and impotence - how proximity to power affects languages and people. Illustrations in the book are made by the artist, Carl Krull.

Design Debat (D2)

Identety & Poster

A poster series for the design events called Design Debate or D2. These events were debating important topics concerning design. A strong graphic approach was needed. We combined a logo and graphics with momentum and force, referencing back to the constructivism aesthetic.
