Hello. We’re Kjell Ekhorn and Jon Forss, better known as Non-Format. Our two studios are located on each side of the Atlantic ocean; one in the Twin Cities, USA and one in Oslo, Norway.

With our firm belief in the importance of bespoke design solutions, we’ve been working with our clients to communicate their messages, define their identities and build their brands since the turn of the millennium. Despite our reputation for expressive imagery and custom typography our firm conviction is that each and every one of our design solutions must balance the desire to connect with individuals on an emotional level with the need for direct, strategic and effective communication.

Sometimes we work with small businesses helping them to establish just the right voice for their brilliant new ventures. Sometimes we work with multi-national brands on campaigns or major product launches. Sometimes we work with publishers or retailers, creating editorial design for magazines, books or publications of all kinds. Sometimes we work with record labels to establish an identity for a new band, and perhaps even a good old-fashioned album sleeve with promo material. And sometimes we work with art directors at advertising agencies, helping them with their campaigns, perhaps by creating a photographic or illustrative image, or maybe some custom made typography, all within the tightest of deadlines.

One thing for certain is that we’re passionate about what we do and have a body of work that we’re extremely proud of. It has taken us more than a decade of working with some of the best-known companies in the world to create our unique portfolio of projects. We hope that you enjoy looking through our site and that we might have the opportunity of working with you too, sometime soon.

We look forward to hearing from you.
