Nils-Petter was commissioned by CarveSthlm to make an illustrated circular motion diagram for Consolis - where each pie slice would be like a miniature world or scene; showing the company's value chain from initial discussions with partners, to innovation and design, to responsible material sourcing, manufacturing, transportation and construction of buildings and infrastructure to a sustainable society. The different illustration parts had to work as stand alone illustrations and together as one circular chart, scalable to any size without distortion.

Consolis is the the European leader in precast concrete solutions for the building and utilities sectors. With 8,000 employees and 20 companies in 17 countries, they provide architects, construction companies and community builders with smart, sustainable, and highly engineered pre-cast elements, enabling them to create homes, offices, universities, hospitals, stadiums, shopping centers, landmark buildings, airports and infrastructure.
