Bookbinding

Lovely little film about the intricate and meticulous work that goes into hand binding a book.

Pietà by Alexander Tovborg (& Bjørn Rasmussen)

We designed the little book that accompanied Alexander Tovborg’s exhibition Pietà consisting of a hand built dinosaur 1:1 size, an old drawing of the same dinosaur and poems by highly acclaimed young writer Bjørn Rasmussen.

PIETÀ

jeg skriver

min døde far
frem
i min favn

og han føder
fra hænderne

en lav sol
en lille gul gummidinosaur

jeg græder
som en symaskine
af glæde

- Bjørn Rasmussen

Yummy Mummy by Charlotte Torpegaard

We designed beauty-expert & Elle column writer Charlotte Torpegaard‘s new book called “Yummy Mummy”. A cornucopia of tips, knowledge, stories and suggestions for keeping your skin & body perky, healthy and pretty both through and after your pregnancy! Also relevant for any woman – with or without child – who wants to look after appearance in a sensible and non-chemical way!  We had photographer Olivia Frølich shoot the cover and illustrator Sine Jensen draw all the little product drawings.

Rosemunde Copenhagen

Last summer we were approached by popular Danish fashion label Rosemunde. They wanted us to redesign their website & online boutique and visual identity (- with one exception, the logo was only allowed to be tightened and simplified). We are always thrilled to meet new assignments that demands and challenges us to to re-think and re-invent existing brands. So we embarked on this and selected some talented photographers to capture the feminine and soft universe of the label. Paired with a crisp range of typography and a douce palette of colours their new brand universe is now launching and from what we hear is being received really well and gaining a lot of well-earned attention.

So about half a year ago we hired photographer Casper Sejersen to work with our idea for a set of flower still lives to pair up with the forthcoming campaign images. The merge between the pure femininity of the rose and the strong light and dark background gave the depth and edge to the images that we were looking for.

Next up we shot the campaign in a warm, blossoming and evoking summer garden with talented photographer Olivia Frølich and stylist Kathrine Agger (incidentally her dad’s farm in the countryside provided the pittoresque surroundings) … here is a little selection of the images (see the whole campaign here)
