Think about World War No 1 - what pops into your mind? The killing of Franz Ferdinand; soldiers fighting in trenches and the shaping of a new Europe. Of course. But how about Coco Chanel; Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis; or the trench coat – originally designed for soldiers, now worn by trendy men and women all over the world. Golden Days Festival is back in town. And once again we’re behind the communication and design concept. This year Golden Days Festival remembers and displays the many outcomes of the war that shook the world. Have a look at the program and dig in.
Shell shock and Coco Chanel

Yoghurt is big in Japan. So is Danone. We have recently designed two ranges of yoghurts for Danone in Japan – their classical yoghurt and a new series of dessert named “Mom’s choice”. Working with Danone in Japan has been a great experience and we look forward to future collaborations.
A tour behind the scenes - and numbers
One year ago Den Blå Planet opened the doors to the new, stunning and whirling aquarium in Kastrup. Today they opened the doors to a new and adventurous visual version of their annual report 2013. At Kontrapunkt we are proud to have developed the concept, design and strategy that allows an interactive video to walk you through the aquarium, while Den Blå Planet walks you through the highlights of their annual report 2013.
"We wanted to do something different. Something that would reflect Den Blå Planet as the wondrous place it is. Kontrapunkt was the obvious choice for the job, and we're very happy with the result.”, says Mette Broksø Thygesen, CCO at Den Blå Planet.
