The Competence Reform was initiated to facilitate competence development and lifelong learning in Norway. We were asked to design a status report after four years with the reform. Together with Berlin-based photographer Heji Shin, we created a photo series that runs throughout the report. We wanted to make a photo-story that shows a rather close and personal portrait of a day in the life of a person that could be affected by the reform. It was important to bring contemporary photography into a context where it is seldom seen. Each chapter was divided by a coloured sheet that on one side showed a page strictly following the design manual of the Competence Reform, and on the reverse side showed ‘do's and don'ts’ of the same manual.
