Freies Theater Hannover offers a diverse programme of classical and contemporary theatre, multimedia productions, musical experiments, modern dance and educational initiatives for both children and adults that take place across many of Hannover’s independent theatres.
Bureau Hardy Seiler, working in collaboration with Created by Monkeys, was recently commissioned by the organisation to develop a new brand identity solution that would unite the diverse programme and the variety of locations under one unified visual system, deliver a recognisable visual impact across the city and convey some of the emotion of live performance. This was achieved through the juxtaposition of sans-serif and serif typography, bright geometric illustrative detail, black ink and unprinted white space across a stationery set and a bi-monthly mailer that doubles as a poster.
Single Origin is a Sydney-based coffee specialist with a roast works in Botany and a cafe in Surrey Hills. Single Origin approached Maud to create a brand identity solution—which included logo design, stationery and packaging—that would reflect the low-key nature of the brand, the founders’ desire to avoid any notion of commercialism and help them expand into new markets. In a ‘category rife with style over substance’, Single Origin is described by Maud as a ‘beacon of integrity’.
