Communicating 150 years of art education would demand a lot from any institution. We helped Valand Academy with their communication of the jubilee, starting with the creation of a symbol to unite the year-long celebration developed in a co-design process with stakeholders at Valand Academy.
With the goal of bringing the celebration of the academy into public life we created a bold, tactile and highly inviting communication system inspired by processes and aesthetics from historical and contemporary art. For the jubilee conference we created a cohesive design featuring traditional still life subjects as eye-catching sculptural signage pieces, and duotones of fluorescent green and charcoal blue. Our work also resulted in flags, send-outs, social media imagery, signage, web banners and advertisements in arts media.
