01 Introduction Every product you touch has had an effect on the world we live in. Do you really know what you’re buying?

Each consumer makes decisions about the products they buy. These decisions are essential to maintaining a sustainable lifestyle guided by knowledge. Our goal is to inform consumers about products they buy and give them opportunities to make a change through a green retail environment.

We are Design Museum Boston, join us.


02 Brand Identity Retail is all about clean modern aesthetics with simple but familiar imagery. When used consistently will provide brand recognition and build equity.

The goal of this branding is to help increase awareness among consumers about the products they buy, where those products started out from and where they are going. Retail will leave viewers understanding that they are not just buying a water bottle or a t-shirt but that they are also buying the process it takes to create those products and the responsibility to dispose of them properly.


Logos Logomark

The logomark represents the consumer world, everything has a price, everything has a cost.

Logotype

The Logotype communicates to the broad audience with purely typographic form. It is direct yet casual. Bold in its own right, but also very approachable and understandable.

As a standalone branding element, hang-tag is a simple but powerful symbol representing consumerism. It also ties very nicely into the “Do you know what you’re buying?” tag-line.

do you know what you’re buying?


05 Typography Knowlegeable, yet approachable—like the cool professor who wears a tweed jacket and argyle sweater, but will also grab beers at the pub after class and talk about “how it really is”.

Typography and brand voice work together to provide a consistent visual and verbal tone throughout all Design Museum Boston touchpoints. The primary Design Museum Boston brand typeface— Benton Sans, is beautiful in its simplicity, yet it is versatile, even in its standard set of four weights.

The Benton Sans typeface was designed by Cyrus Highsmith and Tobias Frere-Jones in 2000, as a study and expansion of a 20th Century standard, News Gothic (Morris Fuller Benton, 1903). The redesigned Benton Sans. The Font Bureau studio expanded it into Benton Sans, a far reaching new series, with matched weights, widths and performance well beyond the limits of the original. A full set of Benton Sans (128 weights) can be purchased from FontBureau, Inc. www.fontbureau.com

Approach & Process

Everything has a cost. Everything has a price. Do you really know what you’re buying?

Retail. Retell. Recycle. Rethink

Responsibility


Websafe Typography Sans Serif Preference Use Arial in lieu of Benton Sans on web applications when dealing with substantial body copy and other typographic elements that do not necessitate branding.

Arial, Arial Bold abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzæøå ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZÆØÅ 1234567890$%&@’*(,.;#!?)

Serif Preference

Georgia, Georgia Italic abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzæøå ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZÆØÅ 1234567890$%&@’*(,.;#!?)

Georgia is a suitable serif typeface that looks good at many sizes on screen. Often, choosing to use a serif typeface to replace the primary brand typeface is better because it doesn’t seem to be replicating the font, instead adding a second layer of depth.
