Our Macs sports new desktops in celebration of our new name, logo and slogan. As you can see from these three last posts we have dusted off an old forest-design by Hilde, switched it over to greyscale and beefed it up with some subtle shadows to catch the feel of these troll-infested forests...

Messing about in Illustrator with a lowbrow-sticker for our Multipla resulted in a slogan / trademark for 3753% Tordal. We tried to get the essence of the lowbrow art movement or at least what we what we feel is the important difference between highbrow and lowbrow - the joy of creating as opposed to the calculating art - our hearts closer to our brains...

Switching between art and design can be a challenge. Not so much for us; but for art museums and the general art community, the ”Design” bit in our name had a very negative effect in many ways when dealing with the purists.
Our new name is a bit more ambivalent and can point to whichever direction we please. 3573 is the area code for Tordal and when we found the old moonshine can in our old barn, the pieces sort of clicked together. We like the idea that the canister can be whatever we like. It can contain art, design, toys and all - and the main reason for us not updating our website lately is that we are working on a new design to reflect the new concept.
Hopefully we’ll launch the new site in january, stay posted!

This is our latest logo for Telejuss. It’s a pretty straightforward design with the classic paragraph signage. The paragraph is a modified Baskerville with oak-leaves. And the name underneath ”Telejuss” is written in Garamond.

This is a new prototype of Papp where we have moved the sensors up to the eyes instead of the original position near the floor. Pros at this time include ability to point sensors left & right, less chance of picking up unwanted reflexes from higly polished floors, and a generally more interesting real-life function of the eyes. Cons at the moment is that the eyelid needs to be opened 135 degrees instead of 90 degrees which will mean that we must make a new design for the eyelid actuator.
