Our role

Website Design

Byverkstedet is interdisciplinary collective that works with urban development.
With the use of design, crafts and architecture they actively influence the cultural and societal infrastructure of Oslo. We were contacted by them and asked to help them build their new website. We have started work on the project with already existing newly designed logo and a beautiful photoshoot by Oda of the people that work for the Byverkstedet.

We focused on the the idea that city = people.
Creating a website always starts with a few sketches
We decided to use two typefaces
We wanted to keep the typography simple and clean, yet fun. We decided to use two typefaces. #1 - Orkney was a perfect for the job. The details in the font, especially letter 'w', 'k' and 'y' make is less of an obvious choice. Orkney is used in bold in all the headlines. We paired it with #2 - Futura PT. It is used for all the body text. It is a classic, modern typeface and is one of our favourite font to use.
Orkney + Futura Pt = <3
