Hi, we are norm–projects
We are a design company based in Cologne, Germany. Projects we work on include industrial design, fashion, user experience and brand development. Our user centric design process always sets the goal to find innovative solutions to all aspects of a product. At the same time we believe innovation should never stand in the way of a product being responsible towards its own environment and the people that use it. We want all things we create to challenge and contribute to todays aesthetic culture.

Luna – Dicover Your Circadian Rhythm
In a world that is getting more and more stressful and time efficient, LUNA teaches users about their individual circadian rhythm.

NP–Suna Grotesk Typography Design
This modern typeface was made for a perfect balance and a good feeling. By lifting the crossbar on one side, the font gets a very friendly and positive expression that makes it perfect for big headlines. Through the small details the font is still classy while having an own smart character. More glyphs, symbols and weights coming soon. Contact us for licenses.
