Last month, on September 22, the Norwegian parliament – Stortinget – revealed a new visual identity. The old minimalist logo has been replaced by a more traditional combination of coat of arms and a serif wordmark. At the launch, it was said this would link the past to the future, representing both continuity and renewal.
Norwegian media are reporting that the new identity was developed by design agency Uniform. Other parts of the design programme use colours inspired by Norway's heraldic red and patterns based on architecture around the Stortinget building. The new typeface is Berlingske.
