Popping-in?

We designed our studio; it's filled with light and music. There are multiple meeting rooms, a well stocked kitchen, and an indoor garden (with fishpond). Pop-in for tea and stay to use a spare desk for as long as you need.

The Beaney branding

Creating the house of art and knowledge

Naming, branding and wayfinding for The Beaney, House of Art & Knowledge

Branding

Creating a personality for Canterbury’s diverse collections and library. Branding, naming, signage, wayfinding, interpretation and everything in between.

In a two-year project, working with Canterbury City Council and Kent County Council, we worked on all of the communications for this renovated and extended building at the heart of the city – from naming the building The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge) and all its rooms, to designing the icons on the toilet doors, and everything in-between. 

First prize for the best creative relaunch and titling in 2012 must go to The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge. What a name!
Museums Journal, December 2012

Their brand expresses an open, joyful, eclectic and welcoming personality. At its simplest, the B aperture can be used to contain any visual messaging – from sophisticated art shows to kids workshops. 

Accessible wayfinding

We worked with an accessibility consultant to design every aspect of the signage and wayfinding – using clear language and naming conventions, tactile signs, non-reflective surfaces and clear hierarchies of information. This was also one of the first commercial uses of FS Me, a typeface specifically developed with dyslexia in mind. 

Large maps are placed in strategic areas throughout the open spaces in the building. With through-to signs and large room names, navigation is uncluttered but always visible and friendly.

We also produced information totems, case-side books (and the layout of text and images within them) and templates for all of the in-case interpretation and labelling.

Thank you for your inspired design and copywriting skills, your patience with the project and for such a brilliant and innovative design team. The Beaney has been hugely enhanced by Cog’s work.
