Believe In recently published images of their print and brand identity work created for the Mall Galleries’ exhibition Colours Of The Kalahari, the first major display and sale of southern African Bushman art ever to be held in London. The exhibition represents the latest generation of contemporary San artists from an unbroken line that stretches back 20,000 years, and includes 150 pieces from 30 leading artists, each honouring their ancestors and their ancestor’s way of life through oil, lino cut, intaglio, embroidery, print, Xhosa or photographic approaches.
Aura is a new range of high end products from door sealing system manufacturer and specialist Lorient. These include drop seals, perimeter seals, door bottom seals, threshold plates and ramps designed with a distinctive curved profile that is described by Lorient as creating a sophisticated visual aesthetic that also spreads and diffuses sound. Design studio Believe In recently worked with Lorient to develop a brand identity for the Aura range, which went to include logotype, launch brochure and sample pack design with holographic foil detail, and product photography.

Collective is a contemporary visual arts organisation founded in 1984 to help new and emerging artists exhibit their work in Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh. The organisation delivers a diverse programme of new exhibitions and commissions, and is described as being “fundamental to the cultural vitality of the country”. Following a move to The City Observatory, Glasgow based design studio Graphical House worked with Collective to develop a new brand identity that would challenge the ‘white space’ gallery convention and give them a contemporary voice within Edinburgh.
