Profile: Bleed

Surrounded by spectacular green hills and mountains, and home to 40 islands and 343 lakes, Oslo is a world away from the hustle and grime of London life. Yet like London, Oslo attracts its fair share of creative talent including Bleed, a graphic design agency established in June 2000. Founded on a manifesto that includes the need to be different, take chances, share ideas, have fun and collaborate, the studio has attracted many fans and awards.

Long regarded as the political, cultural and economic heart of Norway, Oslo is the perfect setting for those seeking inspiration and a good work/life balance. "Today you can run your business from anywhere, but I would much rather breathe clean Norwegian air, go snowboarding in our steep hills, and enjoy the Scandinavian lifestyle than be anywhere else," enthuses Bleed's creative director and partner Kjetil Wold.
