Norges Kreative Fagskole (Norwegian School of Creative Studies)
Create a profile for the 2011 edition of the annual end of the year awards for the Norwegian School of Creative Studies in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger.
The profile consist of a promotional poster and diplomas for all courses. Each course will have two different diplomas; "Best student work" and "Open class".
As the school only have creative studies, we wanted to find a way a way to combine them all. We started to do research on similarities between the different courses and ended up with networking. Without networking you won't get really far in the creative industry. Not only networking within the same profession, but also other creative professions. Who knows when you suddenly need a photographer and a journalist for your friend who's working on a brand new magazine, where you happen to be the graphic designer.
This type of thinking also reflects how the school works. There are several assignments where the students are working across the courses.
To visualize this we created a pictogram for each course and placed them in a network. All the pictograms on the posters are equal, while on the diplomas the pictogram for the given course is highlighted.
We used black and gold colour to give the posters and diplomas an exclusive awards-look.
