Its ships are in the forefront of all of the most demanding maritime industrial venues, all over the world, and they are a global synonym of quality.

JACU has, in its short lifespan, become an international reference in the boutique coffee panorama. We were brought in to shoot the ambiance and the soul of the project, by the savvy hand of Tom Emil Olsen, then @ Havnevik. You can find some of the finer results in Jacu’s beautiful website, if you use the dotted map to navigate it visually.
GRS is a success story, cradled and nurtured in the heart of Sunnmore.

Idunn’s Epler is the reference foodshop for foodies that care about what they put into their system.
It is the one shop where you can buy consistent high-quality organic food in town and it has been gaining a very large following in a very short period of time.
Hilde @ Idunn’s was looking for a change of look&feel of her web-presence that would mirror that growth and her commitment to quality and healthy living – and decided to trust us with the development of her visual identity.
We hope to be able to showcase soon here the work done with her own words and web. For the time being, above you will find one of the examples.
We were asked to do a little film that would bring together this beautiful old design hotel and the city channel where it stands, to bring into view the fjord water that leans against its walls. You can check it in loop, at the opening home page of Brosundet Hotel, in the heart of Aalesund, Norway.
BarentsWatch elected us as provider of the image that portrays the Institution’s commitment to the sea, in its “More than the Sum of its Parts” documentation. Coincidentally, the statement “more than the sum of its parts” was also coined from the international communication developed by us, for a BarentsWatch international conference presentation.
Sometimes we just want to be in the water and if there are things close to our hearts we are available for pro bono work…
Here in the water with national team rower Martin Helseth, from Ålesund Roklubb.
We have become sponsors of Martin Helseth in his quest to become one of the best rowers in the planet.

WEST OIL TOOLS is a big company with a small footprint, and is imprinting its force for engineering innovation in the most astringent of the industrial fields: Oil and Gas.
West Oil Tools knows it is not enough to be good, you have to show it. So they come to us – for several years now – and we align the visual quality of their annual report to their high-quality engineering products and services.
BRUDE, is one of the major safety-at-sea companies in Aalesund, one that roots its image in what may the be one of the most courageous marketing feat in modern history: the Brude’s egg Atlantic crossing. We were asked to make the best of what was their brand identity and modernize it, through the least disruptive process possible. By the end of a mid-pressure year, the results were visible.
The Offshore Simulator at HIALS needed some updates on the platform rigs that are used within their graphic environment, and we were involved in the 3D simplification and rebuilding of two platforms and one tower – in Autodesk Maya 2015. This has been our opening into the amazing world of 3D visualization and we have developed several other – less gaming-like, more VR-like – projects since.
You can check about more of our 3D projects here.

Insoft AS is run by geniuses and like all companies that deal with complicated systems had to find the best way to communicate well what they do so well. So they came to us for the copy-writing of their English version of their site, that ended up shaping the copy-writing of their original Norwegian site too. It was a privilege to be chosen and a privilege to work with them, and with Spirdesign on the development of this site.
Aarim was our first client, through the hand of Spirdesign – we were proud to shoot their photo identity back in 2011, and are happy to see the results of that project still going around after 4 years.
This was one of the most rewarding projects we’ve been involved with so far: InPower is an innovative and forward-looking company that develops propulsion systems for the future of shipping. We developed their whole communication package, conceptualizing keywords and key-statements, together with Doxacom. We are happy to announce that in the years since, InPower has grown to become an increasing force in the minds of their actual, and prospective, clients.
