Only: The British Academy, Summer Showcase 2019

Honourable Mention: Design, Brand Identity

The British Academy Summer Showcase is an annual celebration of pioneering research from across humanities and social sciences. Fifteen interactive exhibits are hosted at the academy in London, alongside talks, workshops and performances, bringing the best new research to life. Only was tasked with creating an exhibition brand to support the academy’s vision of a world in which everyone is inspired to think more deeply about what it means to be human.

The typographic solution plays with depth and scale to represent bringing curiosity to life. This simple yet dynamic approach allows unity of the disparate ideas from across the disciplines, while enabling creative expression across a huge range of touchpoints, including applications and throughout the exhibition.
