A big challenge was the distance work from Sweden to Italy. The key objective: to communicate the theme “making worlds”. A challenge was also to find a theme with a large number of applications and formats and to create a strong identity which does not 'compete' with the exhibited art work of the Biennale art exhibition.
Describe the brief from the client:
The assignment was to create a new, strong visual identity that would
communicate the theme “Making Worlds”. The visual identity should both
reflect the atmosphere of the Art Exhibition, keep all activities together and create an extraordinary interest.
Description of how you arrived at the final design:
The design concept for “Making Worlds” is a graphic language with a visible
connection to the world, that communicates its message clearly.
Stockholm Design Lab combined elements from something truly universal
– all the flags of the world – and created something new by deconstructing the flags in neverending combinations.
The making of worlds with abstract forms.
Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market:
