Kaizers Orchestra – Siste Dans

Kaizers Orchestra presents “Last Dance”, a bastard brew by Lervig Aktiebryggeri. At Kaizers Orchestras farewell concerts, also named “Siste Dans”, they wanted a special beer made by Lervig Aktiebryggeri, local brewery and craft beer specialists, to make a beer to be sold at the shows. The results were “Siste Dans”, a bastard brew set in the Kaizers circus universe. The beer is exclusively sold on draught during this concert as a collaboration between Kaizers and Lervig. The poster design was printed on 70x100cm aluminum plates, decorating the concert bars. The bastard brew itself is a 5,6% pale ale, similar to Lervig’s Lucky Jack – but stronger.

Featured in Victionary’s So1o 2uo 3rio

I’m very happy to be featured in Victionary’s latest book: So1o 2uo 3rio. The book speaks with 30 different designers from 18 different countries in their artistic challenges and experiences. The book is divided into 3 different sections, the solo freelancers, duo studios and trio studios. My feature is spanning 10 pages in the so1o section, as a solo freelancer and solo designer on agency projects. All people I’ve worked with on the projects are also credited in the book. I have to say, the book looks very sleek! I’ve added some photos from my feature below, but if you wish you buy the book, head over to http://victionary.com/.

Lervig 10th Anniversary beer

Lervig started their brewery back in 2003, and now as it’s their 10th anniversary they decided to make a limited edition beer as a celebration, only sold directly at the brewery. The design tells the story of how it started with key words that changed from where they started and where they are now through a typography solution, that falls in similar old style category as the design style of their previous beers. The four pack consisted of 2 of each 2003 and 2013 editions and a little surprise as you open it you’re welcomed with “Enjoy your lervig” written under the closing mechanism. The design was printed as silver on pure black to emphasise both the exclusivity of the limited edition beer and a suitable combination for their anniversary.

Stavanger Aftenblad A+

Stavanger Aftenblad goes from being free on the net to charge for parts of its online services as well as expanding the total supply of content. The aim was to show that Aftenbladet gets better – and that subscribers get much more than before for the same price.

By introducing A+ we emphasized that the newspaper is now much more than only a hardcopy newspaper. The visual language highlighted some of Aftenbladets major subject areas: An A+ dressed in grass symbolizes the sports section, an A+ carved from metal plate filled with oil representing the energy industry, etc. The visual A+ was designed in Aftenbladets’s unique typography. The old slogan “Useful every day” was updated to “Useful every second.” As a subscriber, you’ll always be up to date!

Grafill Sommerfest 2013

Grafill is the interest organization for visual design and illustration in Norway. As well as being part of organizing their annual summer party in Stavanger, Norway, I also designed the identity and poster design for the event. Sommerfest 2013! Visualizing the span and variety of design all coming together within the same party I decided to create a set of different type styles all working together in a natural way within the same frame. The orange was chosen was a warm colour as well as a very strong contrast to the otherwise black / white design.

Bjergsted.no – Fortune cookies

For the launch of the Bjergsted.no website (as seen here) we had a campaign to tease people about the new portal being launched. Bjergsted.no is meant to serve as a cultural portal of events coming up, so people can have a good overview of what’s happening in the district, with the slogan “What’s happening, before it’s happening” – becase of this, we used fortune cookies to tease people of what was to come. There was 10 different messages in the cookies, such as “A great experience awaits”, “Come and try something new”, “Let yourself be carried away by emotions”, etc. These were handed out at the Stavanger concerthall, University of Stavanger and Maestro Restaurant.

Bjergsted.no

We created the new website for Bjergsted Kulturpark (Bjergsted Culturepark), www.bjergsted.no, 14 stages for music, dance, culture and performance arts in Stavanger, Norway – and now an online portal. To visualize the dazzling life of the park as well as creating a more interesting overview map of the park, we decided to create an illustration of the park showing different elements of the park, characters and a sense of exploration of all the content the culturepark will contain. On the website you can use a magnifying glass to explore the park. Posters, postcards and a catalogue was created in addition to the website.

New business cards!

I’ve updated my personal identity, logo and business cards. The original concept from 2010 is still there, but I’ve refined the logo in many ways. The concept is simply the logo reflecting my style and personality in the graphic design work. I’ve been told I’m “sly as a fox”, and yet I have an edgy side to me which is represented by the skull in the fox’s face. The update creates a more define fox, sharper edges and a more contemporary look.

MARULK party invitation

ENI Norway had a party to celebrate the production start at their Marulk oil field. The name itself comes from the fish Marulk which are found at the deepest waters, since they’re gathering oil from the very bottom of the sea over to a tanker.

For their party they wanted an interesting invitation. So we came up with the idea of creating 5 different invitation based on the 5 different names of the fish in English, which are: Sea Devil, Fishing Frog, Frog Fish, Monkfish and Angler. These typographic solutions where printed as tags and the t-shirts themselves were sent out as the invitation to the party.

The type lettering takes inspiration from shapes in both the oil field and the fish itself.

This was created as Procontra.

Comments Off on Fenomenon

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.
