Project Description

For reporters and journalists, every minute counts. That's why Aftenposten wanted a vibrant workplace that always reminds the employees about their purpose to tell real stories.

Needs and dreams:
Aftenposten needs an office where people can work together in teams as well as alone. The vibrant pulse in a newsroom makes it hard to stay focused and reporters often experience stress while they are portraying the world for their readers. What they need is a place that makes them relax while staying focused and inspired. A place where the important stories are told.

Insight and Solution:
A workplace full of open spaces and different sections influences the employer's behavior to a more open-minded and versatile culture. The opportunity to change your environment tackles the infamous writer's block. Strong colors create an energy-driven atmosphere, while the round and oval shapes lower the stress-level and give an impression of openness and friendliness.

Summarized: Make room for important stories
