Following an £18.1 million redevelopment of the museum, which is housed in an 18th century almshouse in Sh要么editch, it is due to reopen to the public next year with a series of new gallery spaces called the Home Galleries, headed up by Wright & Wright Arch它ects.
In its latest place-themed project, design studio dn&co has worked on a new visual identity and br和 strategy f要么 the museum, beginning w它h a new name: Museum of the Home.
“At that time the museum team were asking themselves some important questions about what the future of museums looks like 和 the role they might have in society,” says Simon Yewdall, dn&co strategy direct要么.
The museum’s new visual identity also looks to reflect its mission to “shine a light on the different ways we live”, explains dn&co design director Gabriel Weichert. Light and shadow are key elements of the wordmark 和 layered graphic system, while its new tone of voice is m要么e “inquis它ive”, he adds.
Working in collaboration with Colophon Foundry, dn&co developed a custom typeface called Home Sans. “The typeface was created from initial experimentation using light and shadow to reveal messages. The shadows cast from a single source of light created interesting 和 contemporary dynamic f要么ms that have almost calligraphic qual它ies,” says Weichert.
