Aldy won the contest for the book cover design and I hired him to do 2 books cover + Interior. I'm very happy with the end result.
We had worked with loseeey previously for designing a custom icon font and wanted more icons added. The work was completed quickly and all requests for revisions and changes were handled without any problem. Great experience and would definitely use them again.
Easy to talk to, works really fast. Really recommended! Till next time :)

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We develop systems that communicates information about different features regarding the energy consumptions and different saving facilities in a house or a building. Our systems let home owner produce an analysis of their home and try out the different opportunities for saving.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
In Norway, we have an official system that puts an energy label on every building in the country, like the one you see on washing machines, refrigerator etc. The label gives information about the current energy situation of the house in form of a letter and a color, rating in from best (Green A) to worst (Red G). We are developing a map that shows every building and its energy label including the current features of the house.
We need someone who can design the menu and the symbols representing the different features in a building. When you search an address or zoom in on a house you will first see the energy label. If you click the energy label, a house-menu will pop up including the features in that house, in the form of symbols.
Here are the list of symbols we need, to start with:
-House menu (where the symbols will be shown)
-Air/Air heat pump (luft/luft varmepumpe)
-Air/water heat pump (luft/vann varmepumpe)
-Ground/water heat pump (væske/vann varmepumpe)
-Oil boiler/Furnace (oljekjel)
-Oil stove (oljekamin / parafinkamin)
-Old wood stove (gammel vedovn)
-New wood stove (ny rentbrennende vedovn)
-Solar panel (solcelle panel)
-Electric heating, electric radiator (panelovn)
-Balanced ventilation (balansert ventilasjon)
-Natural ventilation (naturlig ventilasjon)
-Mechanical ventilation (mekanisk avtrekk / mekanisk ventilasjon)
-Heatcontrol system (varmestyringssystem)
-A symbol of an professional energy advisor (person / energirådgiver)
-Energy advisor (person) in a parachute for ordering. (drag´n´drop)
Not to many details in the symbols, keep them simple. They will appear quite small on the map. Take a look at the file that shows the map we re using today, the symbols here are a bit too small.
Most of the symbols have already been design, look at the file for inspiration. We like these symbols, they are quite explanatory, but we are not able to use them due to copyright.
A lot of the Norwegian terms for the symbols are difficult to translate, dont be afraid to ask for more information. We put the Norwegian therm behind every symbol, you can also try to use google if you dont get it.
We are adding our ide of the menu and inspiration for the symbols as files.
