Exciting new projects in the works

A tribute to Patrik Fitzgerald – coverdesign for gatefold vinyl and silkprinted cd-cover with 24-page booklet, identity for hi-end producers Electrocompaniet, interactive applications for Øyafestivalen 09, logo for black metal heroes Thorns, cd-cover and logo for my good friend Trond’s new band All Trouble, and probably even more covers this spring. Stay tuned.

Huzza. Prizes.

Even though I usually keep with Bruce Mau’s wise words (“Don’t enter design-competions”), it was fun to see that two of my last year’s works won in Norway’s second largest advertising/design-competion: Siås (Studentsamskipnaden i Ås) got a silver in the profile category (no gold was given in this category) and my poster for the short movie “Vakseriet” won silver in the poster category. A webproject I contributed on for TINE, won silver in the interactive category. The website can bee seen here.

“How to be a graphic designer without losing your soul”

Reading Adrian Sahaughnessy’s book these days, good stuff and comforting to read other designers’ experiences about the returning problem of customers’ fear of doing anything out of the box. A quote: “…the ones that cut through the drizzle of unremarkable one-size-fits-all communications – are ones where the designer’s thumbprint is clearly visible: the ones that contain a rebel-yell of defiance”.
