Neue Design Studio was formed in Oslo in 2008. The result of their projects come from an insight and knowledge through research. After the first visual elements have been created, the projects start taking on a life of their own; they call this “vitalization.”
They recently vitalized a promotional book for Oslo-based architecture firm, Reiulf Ramstad Architects. The firm has a rooted philosophy that I very much believe in – clear thinking, bold design; clarity that comes from analysis and decisiveness; and bold design that emerges from clearly defined and controlled elements, using site and context as a point of departure.
Neue’s basis of the design of the book was in line with RRA’s philosophy. It must be simple and bold like the architecture they create. Large images are supported by supplementary text in a simple grid, using one style of text in different sizes.
