Oslo City survey illustrations

Posted by rod - 17.11.2014

One of my favourite magazines Monocle created a city survey of Oslo (my current home) in their 78th issue. In addition, although very small, they also included the VisitOslo logo which I have been working on for the past year. South African design studio Muti who also illustrated a map of Japan for Monocle got the task to illustrate the Norwegian capital for the city survey.  The Oslo City survey illustrations include most of the cities main attractions such as the Opera house, Akershus festning, Vulkan, Vigelands park, the Palace etc. They also included some of the lesser-known aspects of the city at least for tourists such as the skiing slope, the beach huk, Hoved island and the many music festivals. Having lived in the Oslo for 7 years I think the people in the illustrations are way to happy. And perhaps the background colour which lies under the text is a bit off, giving it the impression that Oslo is situated in a tropical country. Apart from that I love it as most of the work from Muti. Monocle perhaps could of commission an illustrator from Norway.

Hey, that’s a clever way of thinking about it.

Oh Bev! Not the best week for you by far! So not what you need right now. Glad to hear your house avoided the flooding. Hope the rest of your wee doggies were indoors and okay in all that! Hugs, Wends x

Thanks for your comment, and I’m glad you enjoyed what I wrote.I actually do have a neck brace now, and have written about it in this post: Check it out for my full thoughts. I’ve owned the brace for a while now and am still as happy as ever with it.MXGuy

There never was any ritual. You can question Anders about this when he asks you to distract the cleric. The ingredients you collected were for the bomb.If there weren’t any further dialogues available after this, it is because the relationship wasn’t maxed out. There is a final dialogue when friendship/rivalry reaches 100.Hope this helps.

An attention-grabbing dialogue is price comment. I think that it is best to write extra on this matter, it might not be a taboo topic but typically people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

Like it. Maybe a little too mellow dramatic, but very nice at any rate. By the way, I'm a new subscriber to your site and a fellow UX designer on the other side of the States. Howdy :)
