Building the identity

0.1 THE ICON. The tri-leaf logo is modern and simplistic. The icon had been designed and influenced to embrace New Walk Museums heritage and surroundings.


Building the identity

0.2 THE logo. A new visual identity for the New Walk Museum, whose goal was to appeal to a broader audience and come across as more modern and friendly Solution: Modern typography and a symbol that conveys both traditional and modernity Result: Pride and ownership internally and increased attention externally


Building the identity

0.3 safety areas When the symbol is used by itself, a safety area around the symbol will ensure visibility and impact. The minimum safety area measures 1/4 the width of the icon. No other graphic or text must come inside of the safety areas. When the symbol and logo type are used together, the safety area measurements still strictly apply.
