Web-sitesystems and brand building

For the second time I had a talk for Norske Kunsthåndverkere (Norwegian Arts and Crafts). This time in Oslo at Sentralen, but had the same talk in Bergen late last year. It’s all about what to be aware of when your starting your web career, making your own site on your own without any designer and coder.

I use Squarespace to create my site, but there’s a lot of different services that does a good job. My message is that it’s just a tool and it’s your design that differentiate your business.

It’s fun to do these talks and a honor to be invited. A lot of great artist at the venue.

Hope it’s possible to do more talks like this.

OSL Window shader

I’m exploring the possibilities of OSL shaders with Arnold Renderer.

These are shaders often written as small helpers across different platforms. It works with Vray, Arnold Renderer, Render Man, Octane and Blender.

In this case you can create a WindowBox, Interior Mapping or Parallax Mapping really fast. You just follow the instructions to create a room with 5 sides a middle ground and front (curtain), and the OSL file it self is added to your c4dtoa shader folder.

Another project I’ve done with Metric

Metric is one of the masters of packaging in Norway, and this time is for a Organic Wine Spritzer.

“Oslow is a lightly sparkling spritzer. It pairs organic Italian white wine with organic fruit juice. Developed by Arcus Wine Brands.”

Added two new 2018 projects

 

Happy New Year!

2018 were a really interesting year in business. I had a lot of different kinds of projects and I want to update the site though out January (hopefully if I have time, but who knows).

I made my first book for large scale printing. It’s a handbook about art. Take a look at the page.

New Photos on Unsplash

I've uploaded a lot of new images to my Unsplash. You can download and use these images for free if you want, and use it for both commercial or personal work. So why do I upload these images to Unsplash, and all up for grabs? The reason is that I use this service a lot, and it's how I pay back to this fantastic service and community. I've earned a lot of money by using all the free images I need to communicate to my clients the way I want and need.

So take a look at my images and grab what you want ;)

Conductor of Light product showcase

Conductor of Light product showcase

As a further development of the Conductor of Light brand and webstore we created a new product show case.

The reflective tweed button is a new type of product, and unusual in its product segment. Typically a reflector is a piece of plastic, Conductor of Light is a more little piece of jewelry of fabric and reflective thread, with a sensible function. To help understand what the product is, and to give a sense and felling, usage and function, it needs a good presentation.

Every colour has now it's own identifier that communicate a feeling. Gentle grey is a rainy grey day in a Norwegian fjord, Vibrant Yellow is the strong winter sun at the top of a mountain, Blueberry blue is a succulent blueberries, Forest Green is a autumn foggy pine forest, striking red is the warm red sunset and Perfect plum is some ripe plums ready to be eaten :)

The identity is a combination of British Tweed culture, Norwegian weather and light, and the autumn/winter season.
