Hidden designed by Bunch

Logo designed by Bunch for recently refurbished South London nightclub Hidden

Hidden is a recently refurbished nightclub located in south London. Their new identity, developed by creative design studio Bunch is a simple logo-type ‘hidden’ and revealed by an expanding and contracting visual device.

“We created a logo where ‘Hidden’ is contained in the two vertical lines, which convey both ‘H’ of Hidden and resemble a pause button to hold direct reference to music.” “The logotype, strong in simplicity and bold in design, represents a fine, premier contender in club-world.”

I really like the simplicity and very urban nature of the logo-type and while the animated concept is not unique (see Prima Cool) it confidently takes the name and draws a very neat idea from it. I will be interested to see how this is translated across printed collaterals but I can imagine that there are a multitude of possible print techniques and visual tricks that can reinforce and expand on such an identity.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
