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 Argentinga and public events across the globe. The visual identity takes inspiration from a dot on a map, and in a playful way making references with the map as we want to create connections between people, places, cities, countries and so on.
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 closely worked with the thought of anthology as division, but at the same time combination. The cutting of the text blends it together as a whole and the illustrations separated the different parts as singulars.
This book is the retrospective of the first year of the multidisciplinary artist group called Utopian Union. Over 130 young people from around the globe met 3 times to discuss systems, power, identity in an informal educational way. The book is set with 4 different typographies with an experimental grid-system. The content is a mix of artwork and academic papers to photography and a LARP instruction. The poster was made for the launch at the Manifesta12 biennale in Palermo, Italy in 2018.
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.
Illu is a new art residency opening in june 2019. It invites 6 artist per year to live, experience, and work in Narsaq. Narsaq is a small village located in the south of Greenland and it consists off many small but colourful houses, which also is the inspiration for the visual identity. Illu is also the word for house in Greenland. This is a collaboration with Kiosk Studio and Tea Palmelund.
# 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 philosopher but also more accessible pop cultural references of being a feminist. The magazine is printed on classical news paper and it works as a module system where each side also functions as a A2 poster. The illustration is based on the idea of the balance of yin yang, working with materiality as well as photo collage. All text is set with female type designer Suzanna Licko’s beatutiful font, Filosofia.
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 designs solutions.
“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. The four books are printed with big typography on the spine that together, creates the title. A library can only exist with more than a few books.
“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.
The webdesign for the fashion designer Cecilie Engberg, is meant to reflects the eclectic aesthetics and the boldeness in her design. The aim with the website is both showing final products, runway shots was 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” is a poetry collection written by the danish journalist Knud Brix. “Natfolden” is written on Christiansborg, the danish parlament, 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 is made by artist, Carl Krull.
A poster series for the design events called Design Debate or D2. This events springs out of the idea of that debating important topics, concerning design, would lead somewhere. For this, a strong graphic approach was needed with a clear message. We combined a strong big logo and graphics with momentum and force, referencing back to constructivism aesthetic.
