Fenomenon

Fenomenon is a Norwegian electronica band from Stavanger. Together with Petter Skogheim, we designed their newest album, simply called “Fenomenon”. We decided to build on the idea of a phenomenon, and saw that in light casting and refractions. So the cover itself shows inverted light refractions, which is a quite subtle and beautiful phenomenon.

You can listen to the album here: Fenomenon on Spotify.

Jishin CD Album

Jishin is a Norwegian industrial metal band located in Oslo. I was contacted to make their debut album “JISHIN” almost 1 year ago and everything went well until contract issues surfaced. For about 10 months this album has been kept on hold, but finally put to print in a limited promo run. The album art itself is a visualization of the of their gritty music and expression.

You can listen to some of their music at soundcloud.

Possession – The unholy wine collection

Possession is a limited edition unholy wine collection, featuring “Evil Demon – Bloody Shiraz”, “Haunting Ghost – Spooky Cabernet” and “Old Witch – Cursed Pinot Noir”. All the wines comes in a solid coffin shaped glossy casing, which adds to the exclusiveness of the wine series. Each are based on different occult themes as satanism, the paranormal and witchcraft. The type design on each bottle reflects it’s theme and was made in a rough way to contrast the otherwise clean setup and design, to give it more of an edgy look.
This is a self initialized conceptual design.

Pace & love is a little journal for ALIGN, a supplier of production- and safety critical equipment and solutions, showing their company values; Professional, Ambitious, Caring and Enthusiastic. Because of the season, they wanted a flavour of christmas added to the illustrations in the journal. For the project I decided to build the Pace & Love typography out of tools related to engineering and safety equipment, especially when building emphasis on the letters and their values. The typography is build up from over 100 deep etched objects. I did the typography, design and illustrations for this project.

Movember Christmas

As a yearly tradition at Procontra, they always give away a donation to different causes in the christmas season to spred joy and help others. This year, we decided to donate money to the Movember movement and support prostate cancer. In that occasion, we made a movemeber themed christmas card, which include a moustache for the ones who didn’t save up for one during Movember or had not heard about the movement yet, and we encourage people to take photos of themselves wearing the moustache to continue supporting Movember, all the way until christmas. The tagline on the front says “Movember lasts until Christmas”. I did the design and illustration for this project.

This work was created as Procontra.

Casanova Typeface

I decided to make another typeface after working on some custom typography for another project, and I liked the interesting idea of having the typeface work with angles and direction with very strong base shapes most letters are based on and having thinner lines actually define the letter. It’s not a very ordinary font made for legibility, almost an arrogant font in it’s carelessness towards the reader – hence the name – but still has style and interesting ways to set the letters together.

Ruben Hestholm

Visual identity for Ruben Hestholm, a Norwegian photographer in the Sandnes / Stavanger area.
He mainly focuses on family, youth, pregnancy, children portraits.

When he approached me, he explained he wanted to enter the commercial marked, and the first step into the marked was by coming to me to get a complete overhaul on his visual identity and style, for a lot more clean, modern profile with style, to appeal to his new audience. The design was also made in mind to not turn off current customers, so the identity didn’t go too radical.

The identity is based on different cameras on the different surfaces.

Choose your dose

Who doesn’t love coffee? I can at least testify that I freaking love it and it’s a huge part of my everyday life and creative process. But which dose is the right for you? And what is the outcome of the different dosages of coffee? I have created a series of posters, cards and coffee cups called “Choose your dose” to guide you to the right level on coffee intake. Find your dosage below.

Heart Attack

As most of you people know, on the 22nd of July 2011 there was two attacks that happened in Norway, a bombing of the government block in Oslo and then a shooting that took place at an island called Utøya about 1 hours drive outside of Oslo. Both of these hideous crimes was performed by the same guy who’s a social outcast and right wing as his “revenge” on society. The guy was thankfully caught.

Not long after this happened, Positive Posters released their brief on this years poster competition and based on the brief this was the first event that came to mind for me, so I decided to make a poster about the recent events, mainly focusing on Utøya but still keep it as a motivational poster as in reminding of the tragedy but still showing how well people kept together and opened themselves to others afterwards.

Resturante X

Restrurante X is a high end, young and edgy restaurant focusing on delivering an amazing dining experience in Stavanger, Norway – or for those who just want to sit down for some exclusive drinks. I created the identity, as well as it’s own custom monolined typeface called “Resturante X Regular”, used in the logo and overall the identity. The identity uses both a emblem/seal logo and a regular logo and together with the strong yellow colour it creates a strong contrast.

Mix tapes typography

With the use of mix tapes I wanted to create a typographic series drawn with only one continuous line, per side of the tape. Mainly sticking to writing one word in one seamless line. This was an interesting challenge typographic wise and made the project quite fun to work with. Each of the posters and typography has it’s own style of music. Here is the results, inspired by the days of the cassettes and homemade mix tapes.

Snopp & Fisse

Snopp & Fisse are two different tees based on Swedish and Danish slang for… well, the private areas of boys and girls. I wanted to use awkward and funny slang words from scandinavia in a typographic setting for some tee designs. These t-shirts are released alongside my new online apparel store, so they are up for grabs!

The T-shirts, along others can be bought here: http://danielbrokstad.spreadshirt.com/

Some have been shown in the blog itself earlier, but this is the recap of the posters I’ve done in 2010. One of them being a completely new one:

Resist is the name of the RMIT Printmaking graduate exhibition of 2010, exhibiting the graduates in bachelor and honours. I designed both the catalogue and the invite to the exhibition, with the additional help from Tara De Pasquale who helped out a lot with communicating with printers, finding the right paper stock and keeping everything within the budget applied by our editor team with the printmakers.
