“Owned by art dealer Suzanne Egeran and based in Istanbul, Egeran Galeri represents a mix of emerging and established artists, both Turkish and international, within a program rooted in traditions of conceptual art. Located on the coast of the Bosphorus strait and designed by Sanal Architecture, the gallery carries distinctive architectural characteristics, with diagonal walls that disrupt the space from a conventional geometry.”

“Taking these defining traits as a foundation for the Egeran identity system, Project Projects designed a wordmark which is itself comprised of modernist grotesque letterforms, each broken into delicate fragments by elegantly intersecting diagonals. Applied on front door signage, a stencil version based upon these custom typographic elements translates the graphic identity back to a physical, visceral dimension.” – Project Projects

The neutrality of consistently spaced geometric sans-serif letterforms, light stroke width and an uppercase authority have been given a more unconventional, distinctive and proprietary treatment, much like twisted ribbons of paper, adding a subtle dimensionality, that neatly mixes contemporary structural, architectural subtleties with the more traditional qualities of a warm copper colour palette. Without seeing the gallery’s internal spaces or exterior build it is a little difficult to get a true understanding of what the typographical aesthetic is complementing or distilling, suffice to say it is certainly an interesting piece of letter work accompanied by a really nice write-up from Project Projects.

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.
