More often than not the branding for a gallery or art museum tends to be minimally boring, relying upon tightly kerned Helvetica or something of the sort, which gets old fast. So I was pleased to see this identity for the Ceri Hand Gallery, the largest commercial independent gallery in the UK outside of London. It was created by Marcus McCabe, a freelance designer/art director who studied in Dublin at the National College of Art & Design. I love the practicality of the mark, that it’s simplicity lends itself to becoming something physical like a table or something smaller like a stamp. I also love how the logo works in conjunction with the printed materials, creating a beautiful grid that works on basically any content.
Marcus is going to be moving to Sydney, Australia in October, so if you’re in need of some good design work you should hit him up.
