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.

Check out the campaign, photos and videos at Procontra’s facebook page.

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/

Inferno

Inferno is a self promoting illustration journal, displaying and featuring my illustration work. It’s main theme is the first part called “Inferno”(hell), picturing sad and hurting feelings in combination of horrible visuals. The idea in technique was to combine the flowing paint together with hard and geometric lines as a contrast, where the geometric lines are “responding” to the illustrations. The book comes with a slip cover. The 2nd part of the book is called “Four eyed girls”, and as the title says, is all about girls with glasses.

Pixel

Pixel is a sub brand for Bambra Press, providing an online service for students to more easily put things to print instead of the tedious task of waiting in a queue only to print a few pages. The online service is called Pixel since it is a digital service but also because it’s digital print – which also makes it more affordable for students to use. The look of the logo is overall very cubistic/pixelated, but the touch of vibrant colours still make it stand out as being fresh.

Brain Juice

Brain Juice is a new healthy juice on the marked, but with a new approach! It’s aimed towards teens and young adults who usually consume a whole lot of coca-cola and other unhealthy drinks, and try to make them drink a healthy natural juice. Instead of making a pure and clean design, looking very fruity and fresh and healthy slogans… Brain Juice takes a different approach by being funny, raw and just strange! A guy is sawing his own head off while strangling himself on the package! That’s not normal? It’s brain juice crazy!

Spoke.

Spoke. is a new fictional pushbike and accessories retailer starting up in Kuala Lumpur, and in need for a redesign of their identity to appeal to young and off the mainstream indie type of people. I’ve combined the elegance of a stylized logo, together with the more indie look of crunched paper, which creates an interesting combination and look.
