by north is a design studio situated in Bodø, Norway, focusing on brand identity and packaging. They believe that good design equals good business. Their response to Marianne and Dan’s request for a fitting identity for Nōua, was to develop a dynamic and scalable identity system, which is easy to maintain and adapts to different platforms and messages without compromising it’s clarity. Based around a custom logotype, the identity can be subtle and let the art take main stage. It can also be playful and act as a focal point of the identity, for instance through animations, or as a starting point for Nōua’s bespoke icon set.
