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!

Aker Brygge identity and web September 6th, 2011

As mentioned before Bleed is currently developing a new identity for Aker Brygge, and we are working closely together with the developer Norwegian Property and Architects Spacegroup and Ghilardi + Hellsten. The identity will be the new face of Aker Brygge after a complete remake of the area that is set to be finished in 2015. The main qualities of the new identity are intertwined with the core values of the New Aker Brygge, with emphasis on quality and contrast, and an open and dynamic street environment. Here are some more screens, enjoy!

Sørlandets Kunstmuseum May 24th, 2011

While developing a new identity for the Sørlandets Kunstmuseum (SKMU) in Kristiansand, we also designed their catalogue for 2011. It is showing the upcoming exhibitions and is available directly at the museum. The catalogue focuses on the artists and is built up very simple, with the die-cut new logo on the frontcover. More on the identity later!

Bleed vs. Myspace March 1st, 2011

This winter we got a great brief from Myspace: “Lead the rebranding efforts for Myspace. We have a new logo and entirely new site and are ready to design out the rest of our identity system”.

The revitalized brand is fresh and designed as a vessel that leverages Myspace brand equity and core culture allowing it to mature into a satisfying and engaging social entertainment entity. We communicate Myspace as the place where everyone can be whoever they want to be.

Giving the brand experience room to grow we use subtle typography and combine the logo with different corporate illustrations. The simple material and 3 way separation is the base. The visuals can be random from users of Myspace or generated by professionals.

Watch out for soon to come portfolio update with more images!

This is the first edition in a series of 3. Read more and download here.
