The Swedish History Museum is one of the country’s largest museums with a collection of over 10 million objects from a history that spans thousands of years. The museum also functions as a venue for lectures, concerts and a variety of activities.
Stockholm-based design studio Bold were recently commissioned to develop a new brand identity for the museum that would revitalise the visitor experience, position it as Sweden’s number one storyteller and arouse curiosity and interest in Swedish history. The studio’s solution, which included a logo and logotype, pictograms, print communication, book and interior and exterior signage, is an acute juxtaposition of past and present achieved through the union of disparate type, image, colour and texture.
Giant Owl is a London-based independent production company that creates television programmes, commercials and short films for clients such as Channel 4 and Rimmel London.
Design agency Alphabetical recently developed a new brand identity solution for Giant Owl—which included an animated logo, flat colour palette, glow-in-the-dark paper and bold illustrative detail—that leverages a simple observation to balance an expected technicality with a playful personality, whilst matching the company’s work and providing distinction in an increasingly overcrowded market.
