Monier is a brand new office building which is planned to be finished Q2 2015. The building is owned by Norwegian Property.
Moniers visual identity is based on the building’s architecture which is cubistic and solid. The idea for the logo is derived from the building´s three different window shapes, which is an important characteristic of the Monier building.
As for the logotype, we created a custom typeface inspired by the original signage on the construction site. The alphabet is redrawn in three different widths to fit within Moniers three shaped window concept.
What the client say:
The Monier project has been an exciting experience from the very beginning. Early in the process Bleed identified the unique modular shape of the windows and merged these shapes with letters from the signage of the historic industrial area. This is exactly how we as a property developer like to approach design programs for our buildings. The dynamic use of the logo, both in terms of transparency and flexible letter elements, gives the design another dimension, rarely seen in property development projects. This has made our building stand well out in the market.

Bleed is expanding with two new designers, Camille Dorival and Bjørnar Pedersen.
Bjørnar holds a BA in Graphic Design from Central Saint Martins in London in 2010. He recently moved back to Oslo after gaining work experience from agencies such as Studio Dumbar in Rotterdam and Kokoro & Moi in Helsinki. Camille Dorival has recently earned her masters in Creative Multimedia from the Gobelins School of Paris, and has experience from Rapp France as well being a freelance illustrator.

Formulæ is an Oslo-based perfume brand and creative collective. Sharing a great passion for their work, they focus on a traditional, hand-made approach while paying close attention to details. Using unorthodox combinations Formulæ aims at creating unique scents with a high-end feel.The visual concept for their identity is inspired by the past, when perfume was once a healthcare product only sold in pharmacies. The visual language of healthand medicine products, which is direct and serves the sole purpose to inform, was used to create a recognisable identity with a repertoire of few graphic elements.
Formulæ custom font – BB PerfumeA neo-grotesque monospaced font made exclusively for Formulæ. It is based on the evenly-spaced grid of old letter boards (mostly found at store entrances in the distant past). The font only consists of capital letters and is intended for use on headlines and shorter passages of text.
