Bleed vs The Ministry of Health March 8th, 2013

SluttaOn behalf of The Ministry of Health we have done the product development and design of an app to help you quit your harmful nicotine addiction. The app´s popularity has exceeded all expectations. Since its strategic new year launch Slutta has been downloaded by 49.000 young smokers and snus- users and the numbers keep rising. Download for iOS here and Android here.

From the client (In norwegian)

Da Helsedirektoratet startet opp arbeidet med å styrke røykeslutt og snusslutt for unge, trengte vi en samarbeidspartner på design og helhetstenkning, samt sparringspartner på hva som var mulige veier å gå for å få til gode tilbud for unge.

Slike prosjekter krever ofte stor fleksibilitet da forutsetninger endres underveis. Det har også vært flere andre utviklere på banen, så Bleed har hatt mange parter å forholde seg til.

Gjennom godt samarbeid har Bleed og Helsedirektoratet fått på plass struktur og design for utvikling av app først og fremst, men også designelementer for nett. Appen er laget både for Android og iPhone, og omhandler både røyk og snus. Det er første gang i historien det lages en app som også handler om snusslutt, så Norge er foregangsland på dette. Appen har vært en stor suksess, og første måned ble den lastet ned over 49.000 ganger! Omtaler fra brukerne tyder på at de er meget fornøyde med design, og det er allerede mange som har sluttet med tobakk ved bruk av appen.

Helsedirektoratet er meget fornøyd med samarbeidet med Bleed, og mener de er fleksible, fremtidsrettet og velvillige. De viser god forståelse for arbeid med offentlig instans, og viser meget gode evner til å omstille seg i arbeidet.

Ove Jørgensen – Helsedirektoratet

Say himmelb(l)au! November 19th, 2012

We just launched the spanking new website for Coop Himmelb(l)au, one of the worlds leading architecture offices, located in Vienna and Los Angeles. Their range and quality of work is impressive, which was a great motivation and inspiration for us!

The website is a mix of an experimental front and intuitive content pages. For the frontpage we picked up an architectural approach of Coop Himmelb(l)au, which is the structure of clouds. You can drag a cloud of items and freely explore their latest work and updates. If you prefer to keep it simple, you’ll love the rest of the site. It focuses on their rich content, and allows users to get deep into CHBL’s world. Check out why architecture must blaze, how dolphins become architecture and all other things you need to know about Coop Himmelb(l)au here.

Programming by flawless Værsågod.

Bleed awarded the title of European Design Leader! November 7th, 2012

We are proud to announce that we are one of very few studios being awarded the title of European Design Leader. In company with Studio Dumbar, Pentagram, Meta Design and Stocholm Design Lab it is a great honor.

The European Design Leaders is an exclusive/élite club. Its purpose is to provide a valid and comprehensive index of the most creative studios and agencies of the continent. Defining who qualifies to become a member is based on a process as objective as possible.

How are the true European Design Leaders identified?
To define who is eligible for membership (ie who is a true leader in the communication design sector) we have constructed a careful methodology. Earlier this year, we interviewed a representative selection of design professionals and asked them to rate various international design award schemes. Based on their answers we were able to single out the top 5 communication design award programmes available. These are (in alphabetical order) D&AD, the Design Lions, the European Design Awards, iF communication design award and the Red Dot Awards: communication design. The next step was to scan all the results from these competitions for the last five years. And our task was done: All creative studios and agencies that have managed to win distinctions in three out of the last five years, are automatically entitled to apply for membership at the European Design Leaders club.

We believe that in this way we are providing a simple, straightforward, fair and objective criterion that recognises those studios and agencies that are consistently producing design of the highest level. Keeping in mind that every time we will be scanning and taking under consideration the last five years, it is clear that we are keeping the EDL list up to date and include those firms that are on the forefront of creativity at any given time.

European Design Leaders™ is rather self-explanatory. It is the one-of-a-kind professional club of Europe’s leading communication design studios and agencies. Membership is closed and by merit only. Our mission is to recognise, bring together, showcase and, above all, promote our continent’s most creative firms to the global market.

New identity for Riksteatret June 25th, 2012

rikslogo

Over the last three months we have been working on Riksteatrets new identity. Riksteatret is our national touring theater. The visual concept is that of a poster wall, promoting current events. The logo is inspired by a poster, built up by a bold frame that represents the poster’s edge. The four first letters R-I-K-S, meaning National, make up the nails.

The new identity gives a contemporary feel, differentiating the theatre from an industry otherwise considered classical.
Watch out- a new website is coming soon!
