Arkwright is a strategy advisory firm with offices across northern Europe. Working in collaboration with Haptic Architects we created large-scale spatial graphics and a family of pictograms for their new harbour-front office space in Oslo.
Taking our cue from the interior’s slatted sculptural forms we traced transcripts of speeches by exceptional people with exceptional ideas, including Alan Turing, Marie Curie, Steve Jobs & Bill Gates, Stonewall Jackson and Igor Ansoff. We then used these typographic ‘building blocks’ to build visual compositions illustrating a key theme or characteristic from these historic moments. We also used this strongly linear visual language to create a family of brushed steel pictograms.
