Logo design & Branding
Completed March 2018
We were delighted to be contacted by Sherborne Museum asking for our help with a rebrand to celebrate their upcoming 50th anniversary.
It all started with a visit to the museum which is tucked away on Church Lane, located at the bottom of the rather charmingly named Cheap Street. Occupying the former Almonry belonging to the Abbey, now a grade II listed building, the character filled building immediately provoked numerous logo ideas. After an enthusiastic tour and discussions about ghosts (over coffee & biscuits), we got all creative.
As the museum is hidden from the main road we suggested that the gateway to the museum would be the perfect choice for the logo, it represents Sherborne and the surrounding community perfectly and would also help people locate the museum.
The finished result is a simple yet easily recognisable logo full of character, highlighting the museum, the town and it’s community perfectly, even the colours used were lifted from the brickwork of the actual building adding to the heritage feel.
So thrilled were the curators and board members with their new logo that they have also asked for our assistance to design and print their stationery, leaflets and even signage.
Our personal approach to branding really does help to build strong and trusted brands, visitor numbers at the museum are already up and feedback has been incredibly positive.
Sherborne Museum is fabulous and well worth a visit, the staff are brimming with fascinating stories to tell, some of which are rather quite extraordinary. Visit their website www.sherbornemuseum.co.uk
