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.

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.

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.

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:

Visual Vegetables

This is a little project we had going on about visualizing what graphic design is.

My idea was to show how graphic designers have a different perspective on things, everyday things, in comparison to what other people do. We can look at something and admire it’s typography, shape, colour etc, from a graphic design perspective, which other people would just walk past and not take notice of at all. And I chose an everyday thing to show this through, which was nothing less than…. vegetables! Cutting up vegetables and fruits, as everyone is doing when making dinner.

… but this time playing around with it to make it visually interesting with composition, colour and different shapes.

I_POSTER Exhibition

We had an exhibition at RMIT called “I_POSTER” where all the communication design students made a poster to show(more of a tease) themselves as what kind of designer they are, their skills, personality, working methods etc etc. We had a few people from the industry coming in to have a look at our work and talk to us about what we where meaning to show with our posters and about our work.
