Enzo Finger / Bank of Norway

We are really exited to present the work we were a part of with Enzo Finger for the bank of Norway. This type of assignment almost never present itself as an opportunity and when Enzo asked if we wanted to assist on the design / illustrations on the notes it was a big, fat yes :)

The brief was "Ocean", divided into different subthemes for each value on the notes. Working alongside creative director Enzo Finger has been really inspirational and we got to challenge every aspect of the creative game. We were intrigued with Enzo's idea to go vertical instead of horizontal on the note layout. After all, when you hand out money, you give it vertically. When you insert it into most payment solutions, it is vertical. Receiving from ATMs...you guessed it, vertical. 

Even though this design won the hearts of the jury, bank of Norway decided to go with 2nd and 3rd place submissions. 

Creative director and lead designer: Enzo Finger
Assistand designer / illustrations: Tom Sommerseth

The level of details we managed to put into these submissions can not be discovered right away. You just need to sit back and study while new elements come to life between the layers

Looking into marine history and deep sea activities while being abstract and conceptual, literally made the task easier. Constructions and shapes helped mesh the storyline together while preserving a design people could relate to

Looking into the future and not only what has made Norway successful from past achievements really made us sci-fi designers with a thrill to spin the timecapsule into what could be a sustainable future
