Digital inspiration in Las Vegas
This February Senior Service Designer Katja Egmose and Partner Lars Larson attended the world’s largest interactive technology trade show, Digital Signage Expo, in Las Vegas. According to Katja, the expo was a great inspiration on how technology makes it easier to focus on the substance of branding. “At Kontrapunkt we believe that every digital solution must be driven by content. Digital possibilities are developing fast and today we can actually create brand-driven interactive solutions that allow a great two-way communication between our clients and their customers. A company like Adidas has done this brilliantly by making window-shopping interactive.” Overall their trip to Las Vegas has given a lot of new ideas and fresh insights for our future work.

Alm. Brand launches new visual identity
One of Denmark’s oldest financial concerns, Alm. Brand, launches their new visual identity with a nationwide campaign that introduces us to their new logo on TV and in all local branches. We are behind the new visual identity that will help Alm. Brand step into character showing more openness and engagement in the society. Gone are the national flag and the capital letters. With an engaging light blue and italic letters, the visual identity cements Alm. Brand’s new brand position.
Building on more than two centuries of heritage and expertise the visual identity expresses the fine balance between heritage and modernity. A relevant, light and iconic logo and expression allow Alm. Brand to speak directly to costumers and enter into a value-driven public debate. Read Bureaubiz' article and join the debate.
The University of Copenhagen is launching a new Master of Science (MSc.) in Security Risk Management. Highly sought-after by both public and private organizations, graduates are trained to foresee and manage complex global risk and security issues.
We developed the campaign to attract international students from top universities to this new MSc. The concept is a flow of fictive and provoking breaking news headlines that represent worst-case scenarios close to the ones the students will come across during their studies. The campaign slogan loops from “predict the unpredictable” to “think the unthinkable” and “manage the unmanageable” to show the different steps of learning. News banners and covers from magazines such as Foreign Policy and Economist, read by these clever students, inspire the tight yet distinctive design.
