Opplyst opens at National Library of Norway
Opplyst, a new permanent exhibition at The National Library of Norway, has now opened. The title, meaning ‘Enlightened’, refers to the exhibition’s central concept: thirty highly-significant objects from the country’s history put on display together for the first time and based on a concept of light arising from darkness, with every aspect bespoke-designed by Nissen Richards Studio, including branding and graphics, in order to create this dramatic immersion into Norway’s fascinating history.
New identity for Clwb Ifor Bach
Nissen Richards Studio has designed a new identity system and website for Cardiff music venue Clwb Ifor Bach, inspired by the plan for the forthcoming venue revamp. The new logomark represents a vertical re-telling of the new building configuration, also designed by Nissen Richards Studio – whilst also referencing sound bars. This triple dynamism is further reflected in the new logotype, which uses a combination of different typeface weights to convey movement and music.
Planning permission has been granted in Upper Norwood
Wordsworth Grasmere new identity
Nissen Richards Studio has created a new identity and brand applications for Wordsworth Grasmere, bringing together the classic and contemporary through a bespoke set of characters initially inspired by Baskerville, the typeface used to print Wordsworth’s first editions. The logo’s unique ligature represents connection and references handwriting, as does its ink-and-water-stained background, created in a number of colours to reflect the site and surrounding landscape.
