WORK IN PROGRESS | DUODU knitwear designs is a two-woman studio, run by Rita Nylander and Anne Grut Sørum. For 15 years they have designed and produced exciting and different outfits for quality-conscious customers looking for something special. Their products are being sculptural in style and made to embrace and celebrate the human form, woman or man.
I’ve just been given the job of designing their new book and am incredibly excited and happy. The book should not only be about the artists but also about how we can see knitting in a larger perspective related to both identity and art. Author: Eva Furseth.
Today we started the process of looking at values and personality related to typography, colours, pictures etc. We looked at other books, different typography and various formats. Then there was salad, coffee and chocolate. A good start of an exciting project.
WORK | Directly from MOO Print in London my new business cards arrived today. Four layers of Mohawk Superfine paper combined with MOO’s Quadplex technology produced with a red seam of colour within the layers, the cards are extremely nice. The cards are 600gsm, which is roughly twice as thick as standard business cards.
WORK | Developing its own logo and identity is often put on hold. Customers and projects always go first. But finally, my new logo and identity has been designed. I am inspired by sophisticated typography, the contrast between light and playful shapes, elegance and simplicity. With great help from Eirik Backer the website will soon be launched, and October 12 brand new business cards will be delivered from MOO print shop in London. 600 gr Luxe Business Cards.
I can’t wait.
