A transatlantic message in a bottle

Pistonhead from Brutal Brewing has made great success in Sweden with a whole range of kustom kulture lagers. Now the Canadians can enjoy it as well since Pistonhead has made it all across the Atlantic!

 

THE sharpest knife in the drawer

We are oh so happy to announce that the classic brand Morakniv has chosen to work with us. The brand has been present since 1891 and is still “Made in Sweden” – which makes this collaboration even more honorable.

 

Take it up a notch, sir!

Brutal Brewing certainly have. With Sir Taste-a-Lot State-of-Hoppiness, you can enjoy a hoppy, bitter and slightly stronger lager than its younger brother. Filled with a quartet of Cascade, Citra, Perle and Amarillo hops and brewed with Melanoidin and Pilsner malts – this light amber lager is truly the embodiment of fine taste.

Jury duty deluxe

The yearly advertising event 100-wattaren was certainly this week’s highlight as our Creative Director Peter Neumeister was part of the award jury. A very proud moment indeed!

Charmed by the countryside

Gunnarhögs Gård is a family owned farm situated in scenic Österlen, mostly known for their canola oil. We’re happy to present their new corporate identity, packaging design and range of printed goods developed by our Malmö office. If you happen to travel south, make sure to visit the Gunnarshög farm store and enjoy their café filled with homemade delights. You’ll be charmed!

Gigantic news!

We take great pride in our corporate identity development for Elgiganten, and so does Brand New as well. This online reviewer of corporate designs just published our work. The new look is currently being implemented in Norway and Denmark, before being finalized in Sweden.

Just what we longed for

We are so lucky to have found Jeanette Zackrisson; our new production manager at the Stockholm office with a true passion for packaging design. She even has a blog devoted to it  (chanett.tumblr.com) and is known to take her time when shopping groceries, scanning shelves for inspirational packaging. With a solid background from design agencies like Stockholm Design Lab, McCann Stockholm and Pond, you’ll be in good hands!

From one jury to another

Guldägget is Sweden’s most prestigious communication award so we’re all tremendously happy that Peter Neumeister was one of the lucky few to participate as jury member this year!

Mmmm…

Beervana has returned! At least for another summer or so. From the 1st of May you can bring back those harmonious gatherings in the sun that you’ve so longed for.

Do as Neumeister! Support the children’s cancer foundation – All the way to Paris

As a member of Team Rynkeby, Peter Neumeister will be riding his bike from Stockholm, Sweden to Paris, France this summer to raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Foundation – and you can help sponsor him without breaking a sweat.

For SEK 25.000 your company’s logo will be displayed on the team’s cycling jersey every kilometer of the way. Neumeister will also provide an additional SEK 5.000 for every one of our clients who choose to support this fund-raising event.

Simply contact Peter Neumeister for complete details. This is one trip you won’t want to miss.

Neumeister is branching out

After six years of steady growth in Stockholm, Neumeister is opening in Malmö to better serve businesses in Skåne and southern Sweden including Malaco, Koenigsegg and Lindahl’s Dairy owned by Skånemejerier – as well as long-time client Skånetrafiken.

By this time next year, the goal is to have a staff of 10 Neumeister designers and account managers in place on Västergatan. Read more about the expansion in an article published just before Christmas at http://www.sydsvenskan.se/ekonomi/arets-designbyra-till-skane/

On a roll

We’re proud to announce that our friends at Backers, the Finnish bakery brand, recently won the prestigious advertising competition “Skålen”. Congrats to Backers and Per Torell, the creative brain behind the winning graphic identity program.

Tour de Paris

Peter Neumeister is helping Team Rynkeby to raise money for The Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation and will join their charity bike tour from Stockholm to Paris in the summer of 2013. That’s 1540 km to increase awareness and fight children’s cancer!

A real kick in the groin

That’s what you’ll get from Pistonhead Crude Oil – the new liquorice shot from Brutal Brewing. Unrefined and with loads of chilli, it ain’t exactly a smooth ride…

Enlighten yourself…

And reach true Beervana with the new limited edition summer beer from Brutal Brewing. A lager with a pleasant bitterness and a hint of grapefruit that lingers on the lip – perfectly suited for harmonious gatherings in the sun.

Well dressed

The arrival of a season calls for a new outfit and Sparkling Water just got one, clean-cut of course. Beneath you’ll find the refreshment, just as you know it.

Nominated for two FAB Awards

Boy oh boy, just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we receive two more award nominations! Our visual identity for Backers, the Finnish eco-bakery, and the packaging design for French wine range Xavier are both final contenders in this international food and beverage contest. That is fabulous.

Proud finalists of Clio Awards

Robust cooking with style

Skeppshult is a proud part of a Swedish handcraft tradition. We are very happy to welcome these manufacturers of the finest cookware there is, as our new clients. A new identity and packaging design solutions are on the way…

Who said naming is everything?

All this talk about brand name being the most important corner stone… our redesign of the Google logotype clearly shows the impact of strong design when it comes to instant recognition. Now we’re just waiting for it to turn up at their web page. You never know…

Monaco Grand Prix

Another interesting book project is about this Formula 1 super event. Pictures from the 60s of this classic competition, were mysteriously found in a drawer somewhere in Stockholm. In close collaboration with Richard Lindvall, who’s father Sture Lindvall is the man behind the pictures, we designed the book. It portrays the last independent race of 1967, before sponsorship was initiated to rule the game. As we like some of the pictures so much we now have them on our walls.

5 years in performance

This year we celebrate our first five years in business. And together with the London-based art director Sonya Dyakova, the illustrator Jonas Bergstrand and writer Tor Bergman, we celebrate with a book that describes what this trade is really all about: It’s circus!

Danke schön

We really had a marvelous time at the party last week. All thanks to our guests of course; and the DJs, and the caters …  See you all next October!
