Visual identity and logo
Wilgart was looking for an appealing logo and profound visual identity. We had several meetings with font designer and senior art director Leon Sloth. He is a strong visual observer and idea generator, with much experience in exposing the heart of a company, and turning that into a beautifully custom-made logo, and strives for creative solutions to every challenge he is facing. Leon is now Co-Founder of Today Studio in Copenhagen.
We where very happy and pleased to work with such talented filmmaker. Ali has great capabilities in collaboration, creative thinking and execution of a film project.
Rasmus Preston is a talented Danish based film producer and photographer. We have been collaborating with him in various video projects, and his early contributions, as a Wilgarts storyteller is a true treasure for us.
In 2019 we had the pleasure of working with Thomas Mougeolle, in his photography project: Magic Hands of Copenhagen. As he wrote himself about the project: “I took my camera and met with those that creates Copenhagen with their own hands. In the darkness of their workshop, without any noise, they make the dream come true. Mixing light and materials. The creative alchemy is their daily life.”
Nicolai Egense is a Danish based photographer, with a lot of experience in potraits that that embed stories of people and places. Collaborating with Mr. Egense is always a pleasurable constallation, while simultaneously together we are creating a professional and well composited outcome.
