Today we go full on Nordic with firms and clients from Denmark and Norway and an aesthetic that you just can’t get either on this side of the pond or even in other parts of that side of the pond. What I’m trying to say: They got serious design skills up there.
With roots as far back as 1962, EDB and ErgoGroup combined in 2010 to form “the largest merger ever seen in the Nordic IT industry, and the fourth largest corporate merger in Norway regardless of industry.” In March the company announced a name change to EVRY, a leading IT company in the Nordic countries with 10,000 employees and 14,000 public sector and private sector customers. The new identity has been designed by Oslo, Norway-based Scandinavian Design Group.
With roots as far back as 1822, DNB, as it is now known, is Norway’s largest bank and financial services group. Last known as DnB NOR, from the 2003 merger of Den norske Bank (DnB) and Gjensidige NOR, DNB currently has more than 2.3 million retail customers and over 200,000 corporate customers with 200 locations across the country. A first peek at the new logo was released earlier this year in June with this unfortunately dopey picture but the official release of the new identity was earlier this month. The identity has been designed by Oslo-based Anti and Snøhetta Design.
To start the month, some random bits from the world of identity.
