Urgent.Agency receives 4 Creative Circle nominations!
The nominees for this year’s Creative Circle Awards for Design have been revealed. Urgent.Agency is ecstatic to learn that we have been nominated in 4 different categories, hereby making us the agency with the highest amount of nominations alongside Studio C. (Congratulations to Studio C as well!)
Clearly, last year was a terrific year! It brought us the opportunity to work with Alice, Copenhagen’s new beacon for experimental contemporary music and the promising offspring of Jazzhouse and Global. Alice’s new brand identity is nominated for best Small Business Identity.
We also had the pleasure of working with the magnificent and iconic House of Finn Juhl and the always ambitious Designmuseum Denmark – also both nominated in the categories Corporate Identity and Rebrand/Corporate Identity, respectively.
Lastly, we had the very good fortune of discovering a hidden gem. The type Flexibility was literally found in the archives of Designmuseum Denmark and conscientiously revived and re-designed in collaboration with Lars Klint. It is now nominated for best Type Design.
We thank our clients and collaborators for bringing their business our way and we are grateful that our hard work is receiving recognition from Creative Circle. We hope to see all of you on May 25th at the Creative Circle Award Show!
Bringing life to the car-free streets of Oslo
Together with Rambøll, Urgent.Agency has been engaged in mapping needs and potentials in Kvadraturen – the historical heart of Oslo.
September 15, 2017 News
As the Norwegian capital is aiming for an ambitious car-free future, the wide streets may be put to new use. But what do the city and its people really need? How are visions of more street life synchronised with practicalities of transport and bad weather? How is the remarkable identity and diversity of the area amplified and strengthened?
To inspire future scenarios, we map how people, businesses and other relevant stakeholders experience Kvadraturen today – and discuss possible futures. In the first week of September, we created a pop-up office, hosted meetings, and carried out interviews, observations and registrations. Later this autumn, we will carve out our findings and ideas in a publication. The work will also feed into an ambitious exhibition organized by Design og Arkitektur Norge (DOGA) about strategies for reprogramming the city.
