New DOGA.no is part of a large-scale brand project being carried out for Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA). Creuna and DOGA jointly developed the new user-driven DOGA.no. The goal was to create a website that is easy to navigate, visually appealing and that clearly shows all that the fields of design and architecture have to offer.
Together with Innovation Norway and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, DOGA has prepared a report that investigates how other countries perceive Norway and Norwegian business and industry. The results show that DOGA’s efforts to strengthen the fields of design and architecture in Norway and internationally are both appropriate and effective.
