Meteorologisk Institutt provides meteorological data to Norway’s military, civil services and the general public with the intention of safe guarding life, property and the environment. Design agency Neue developed a new visual identity solution for the institute that mixes geometric shapes, material and print choices and the humanistic and environmental detail of photography to achieve communicative and aesthetic contrast and capture the data drawn from the harsh Nordic weather and the impact its gathering has on the people of the country.
Established in 1996 The New Zealand Antarctic Research Institute is the body responsible for developing and managing New Zealand’s scientific research and conservation activities in Antarctica, Southern Ocean and Ross Sea region while also raising ‘public awareness of the international significance of the continent’. The institute’s new identity, which replaces an illustrative fern and penguin mark, was designed by Auckland-based Richards Partners (formerly BRR) and delivers a broader and more scientific sensibility through symbology, metaphor, simple geometry, monochromatic colour and a neutral typeface.
The International Centre for Tomographic Research is a chain of tomographic diagnostic centres located in and around Moscow, Russia. Their identity, created by Tomat Design, utilises a custom typeface and simple roundel device (executed as a window across the collaterals) to visually characterise the imaging process and the unique specialised research the company undertakes.
