Inspired by Scandinavian design traditions we created a minimalist expression to reinforce its focus on their products. The colors are inspired from the nature in Hjelmeland; -sun, sky, mountains, cropland, grass, sand and sea. As a counterbalance to an otherwise tight visual profile, the circle is used to provide a contrast in both shape and color.

The world’s largest event for winter sports meets Nordic Simplicity.
In 2014, Snøhetta was commissioned to design the visual identity and feasibility study for Oslo 2022’s Applicant City bid. The identity of Oslo 2022’s visual language honors the inherent simplicity and openness in Nordic culture. By balancing playful graphics and strict geometry, the identity represents both the celebration of the Games and the solid planning of the Norwegian bid. The ambition for Oslo’s 2022 Winter Olympics bid is to share the genuine passion for winter sports, and invite the world to an open, friendly and sustainable celebration of sports.
The circular forms of the letter O and the number 0, as well as the repetition of forms in the number 2 and letter S lend themselves to a graphic element constructed out of just a few geometrical shapes. Combined with colors inspired by the Olympic rings, the result forms the basis for the identity.
The circle becomes a very central part of Oslo 2022 bid’s visual identity and is very prominent in the new logo.
The development of the Identity for the Oslo 2022 bid was divided into three stages. First, Snøhetta developed a simple ‘logo-less’ identity for the application for a funding guarantee from the government and to provide information about the ‘Games in the City’ concept to the public when it was put to vote during a local referendum in Oslo. In the second stage, the logo, typography and main identity were fully developed. The identity included art direction of aerial photography as well as interior architectural elements and signage. The main objective for the second phase was the presentation of the Oslo bid at Norway House during the Sochi Olympic Games in the form of exhibition design, print design for brochures, and digital design for the new website. The final component of the identity was the design of the Candidature Acceptance document and all accompanying elements for the IOC submission on March 15, 2014. Visually, the three iterations of the identity each reflect a point in the process leading up to the application to the IOC.
Mendeli Street Hotel
Designed by BK architects, Mendeli Street is a city-beach hotel celebrating the modern spirit of glocal Tel aviv. Koniak was commissioned to tailor a brand which reflects these contemporary qualities. The studio chose to focus on the scorching tel aviv sun, as its protaganist.
The yellow circle in its simplicity works to highlight, frame and compliment the minimalistic black & white typography. While the interior of the hotel mixes ancient pieces with modern israeli and international design, the identity remains austere using black white and yellow, printed on fine quality white board.

Blue Hill brings a taste of their exquisite, award-winning dining experience to your local dairy aisle with the launch of their savory yogurt line, Blue Hill Yogurt. Laureen Barber, co-owner and Design Director of Blue Hill, approached us to work with her to bring this exciting brand to life in the yogurt branding, packaging, print collateral and website design. It was important to Laureen that the brand felt authentic to the Blue Hill brand and that it had it’s own unique identity that would stand out in a crowded yogurt dairy aisle.
From our first meeting, we were mutually inspired by the aesthetic of a vintage seed packet line for the yogurt brand and packaging. The artisanal quality of the packets meshed with the farm-to-table Blue Hill brand and felt like a natural direction for this product line. We worked with the talented Mary Woodin to craft vegetable illustrations and brushstroke lettering for each flavor. Juxtaposing the warmth of the illustrations and the cool slate struck the right balance of authenticity and refinement at the heart of the Blue Hill brand. We added level of whimsy and depth to the product experience by adding a surprise message underneath the colorful and vibrant lids.
For the product launch, we worked with Laureen and her team to develop a press kit package utilizing wooden boxes filled with samples of each flavor in small weck jars and a stack of cards that told the story of the brand and introduced the flavor profiles: Beet, Carrot, Tomato, and Butternut Squash. We worked with photographer, Ben Alsop to capture images that highlighted the natural beauty of the quality ingredients. The brand storytelling continued on the website where we aimed to take viewers effortlessly through the full experience of the yogurts — from the heritage of the Blue Hill dairy farm to the 100% grass fed quality of the milk to the tasty, savory flavor profiles and how to use the yogurts in everyday recipes.

Karl and Berta Fazer inspired an entire city by establishing the first Fazer Café in 1891, in Kluuvikatu, Helsinki. Ever since, the Fazer Café has remained a step ahead, surprising patrons with its ideas, tastes and combinations of both, to the great pleasure of the city’s inhabitants.
The new Fazer Cafés continue the story and work with the right balance of elegance and leisure—the rough and timeless taste of life itself.
The first batch of new Fazer Cafés was opened in the summer 2013 in Munkkivuori, Helsinki and in the Stockmann department store in Tampere. These cafes were followed by two more in Helsinki in the fall, and there are multiple new Fazer Cafés in the pipeline.
Kokoro & Moi is responsible for the brand identity for the new Fazer Cafés. The work spans the brand’s story to tone-of-voice, visual identity and communication concepts both online and offline. Spatial design for the café is developed in collaboration with the interior architecture office Koko3.
The visual identity is built on the custom-made typefaces, Fazer Grotesk and Fazer Chisel, which have taken their forms from the classic ‘FAZER’ sign at the renowned Kluuvikatu location. The typefaces are used comprehensively for all the visual communication and marketing materials. They are utilized everywhere from the logo to the menu boards and price tags and with single characters that take over the packaging materials, clothing and the decor of the walls. Other custom-made graphic elements utilised in the identity, in addition to the typeface, are various patterns that Kokoro & Moi designed to be used in wallpaper, napkins, take-away packaging, and staff accessories among others.
