Design concept for HYMN

During the summer I’ve been working on extending the visual identity for Hymn, which is now one of Sweden’s biggest online magazines for new music. The identity has been broadened to include co-branding, or events presented by Hymn. That could e.g. be a concert where the band takes prominence over the brand. Eventually, the plan is to introduce further colours into the palette. The concept is designed to handle unique band logos or layouts using varying fonts – shown here are Sectra and Haptik Rotalic from Grilli Type, as well as Playtype’s good old Signature. The stroke becomes an active element, shown in the slide below.

The basic design relies on monochrome photos with burnt out backgrounds.

In cases where suitable images cannot be found, the follow layout should be used.

Kontrapunkt vs e-Types II

Both Kontrapunkt and e-Types have started the year by posting a high-profile new project. From e-Types we get the new car design for the Danish police, whose existing identity was created by e-Types in 2003.

Kontrapunkt on the other hand present a new logo package for the Danish broadcasting service DR. The redesign includes an update of the basic logo from 2005, which has been simplified considerably. The new logos include the radio stations, for which e-Types created a system in 2006. The real eye candy lies in the typography for the channel/station identifyers, which indeed looks very Danish.

DixonBaxi | Eye branding

Brand New‘s list of the year’s best identities is always inspiring. Fun to see American burger chain Wendy’s in there, as well as Wollf Olins’ brilliant USA Today redesign (naturally, their London Olympics brand didn’t make the cut). One of my favourites is a rebranding of Eye done by DixonBaxi, who shouldn’t need any introduction. It’s a brilliantly simple but versatile solution and you’ve got to love the bespoke type.

Design guide in one day

Spent the day putting together a design guide for art gallery Pictura in Lund. I have created and developed their visual identity over the course of two years, so naturally most of the material was already finished. This goes in the portfolio now, and it feels good to put a full stop after this long period. Next year someone else will have to take over as creative director, with the help of this (click to download full pdf).

Unika cheese

Last weekend the new exclusive Danish cheese brand Unika was launched with the opening of a store in Copenhagen’s Torvehallerne, an upmarket foodcourt. The 8 cheeses were developed by Arla in cooperation with some of the country’s finest chefs. The identity and store are designed by Kontrapunkt, and I was working on this in the early stages. Out of the projects I have been involved with so far at Kontrapunkt, this one is the first to go public. I visited the new store yesterday, and this is what it looked like right then. I also took the opportunity to buy a piece of my favourite out of the cheeses I’ve tried so far, called Troldhede Ask (Ash).

Working For the Summer

I will be staying at Kontrapunkt until the summer holiday. I have had an excellent time so far and I look forward to being able to share some of the projects I have been working on. In the meantime, here’s a new identity for Koda (the Danish equivalent to Sweden’s STIM) that just went public. Read more here.
