“Ringnes is Norway’s largest brewer and part of the Carlsberg Group. Strømme Throndsen Design has redesigned their Nordlands Pils, a regional Northern Norwegian beer with a history dating back to the 19th century, that looked to establish a more contemporary interpretation of their heritage.
All the original elements have been kept but have been redrawn and hand lettered with a retrospecitive appreciation for detail and craft, and the iconic Nordlands boat has been given more contrast and dynamism to stand out in the shelves.
The redesign clearly provides the beer with a high quality and brand sensitive revision of the established local pilsner.”

“What would one of Norway’s leading advertising agencies be without it’s own homemade beer? Well, thirsty is probably one of the things so we decided to brew our very own IPA beer at our office in Oslo to treat both our clients and our selves with.”

“The two kinds of grape, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, that constitute this wine are grown in Villány, Remete-dűlő (remete – hermit, dűlő – hillside ). When choosing the cave-motif as the central icon of the design, I was trying to unfold the implication of this telling place-name, namely: the solace of a hermit. Then, this motif has been mixed with the Omega-sign, commonly known as the symbol of the beginning and end of all things. Another central motif of the label derives from a good observation of the wine itself: when serving genuine red wine, a so called glicerine-ring appears on the rim of the glass, creating a crown on the wine. Thus, my plan was based on this silver transition, referring to the high qualities of this wine.”

“Nick came to us with his idea of creating authentic high-quality RTD frozen cocktails and challenged us with the task of identifying a positioning, naming and packaging design for the brand.
The current competitors in the market did not emulate the flavour and quality of hand mixed cocktails. We identified a brand positioning for Köld, which focussed on the idea of sophisticated urban cool and tapped into the trend for all things Scandinavian. This allowed the brand to be clearly differentiated from the competitors who mostly focussed on fun with fruity sweet cocktails. Köld targets those who enjoy authentic cocktails and want to be able to recreate this taste experience at home. Köld cocktails are sealed into individual serve pouches which are placed in the freezer and then squeezed into your glass and served KÖLD, a perfect cocktail guaranteed every time.
As it is a frozen cocktail, we wanted something clear, pure and unique. The snowflake gave us the opportunity to create something bold and iconic for impact at fixture, whilst allowing the flexibility for individual flavour communication.”

“In February 2014 Mack Isbjørn is back on the shelves after being away since 2007. This is the first project by north™ has taken on for Macks Ølbryggeri, the worlds northernmost brewery. The goal for Isbjørn is to establish it as a competitor to products like Tuborg pilsener and Ringnes pilsener who today dominate the lower price-bracet in the beer-category in Norway, and to recruit new customers to Mack.
The design lends it’s language from Swiss Modernism and challenges the traditional beer-design seen in the category, which makes it stand out on the shelf with great impact both in graphic language and use of color.”

“A year-end pop culture cleansing dipped in the mystique of the French Quarter’s darker corners. Relax with a mug of hot chocolate elixir, reflect on 12 scourges that were visited upon us in 2013, and personally conjure a message from beyond to reveal what 2014 holds in store for you.”

“The Figula winery vineyards are located at Balatonfüred and its sounding places. One such place is Balatonszőlős – Sóskút. This winery is one of the most beautiful areas and it is mentioned as a crown jewel of the winery. From here came our idea to deal with the coat of arms of the two areas. In compliance with the rules of heraldic coat of arms the combination of the two places has been created. As a great shield the coat of arms of Balatonfüred embraces the coat of arms of Balatonszőlős in a shape of a heart. This is the Fess Point, the most important element of the coat of arms. Thus this sign embodies in a authentically manor the relationship between Wine, Winery and Sóskút-vineyard.
In this concept we created a custom font for the winery that is modern, but also reflects to the basics of the heraldic emblems.”
