Bleed had a fantastic time in Istanbul at the European Design Awards. 2 awards + 2 finalists for our work with Monier, NRK and Logg. We are already looking forward to the event in Vienna next year!
Computer Arts is the magazine for people who believe design matters, and has been inspiring and informing graphic designers and illustrators since 1995.
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.

To celebrate the end of another creative year with amazing clients, we treated ourself with a newsprint with overview of some of the many outputs of 2013. Here is a snapshot of that before we leave for the holidays :)
Merry Xmas & A Happy New Year!

ByCo is a new microfinancing company based in New York. Byco combines old-fashioned capitalism with crowd-funding principles. But instead of a perk, investors receive 10 percent of sales, depending on how much they put in. And the designer, who receives 20 percent of sales — or 30 percent if he or she is the sole investor — doesn’t have to deal with manufacturing, distribution and sales.
Bleed designed the corporate identity and web.
