Glue is a think tank, whose brand identity was designed by London-based Magpie Studio. They’ve written such a great description of the work, I had to share:
How to—Make an identity stick.
Glue is new think tank, specialising in connecting brands and policy makers with a largely disaffected youth. The identity, which began with a naming stage, needed to appeal to a demographic of hard-to-reach 16 to 25 year olds.
A graphic language of bold patterns was created to represent the different groups and communities that Glue brings together. These contrasting patterns are physically joined by a unifying wordmark, to form a simple and memorable identity that sits in stark contrast to the jargon-heavy, grey identities that typify the sector.
For some reason I really wish the circle fill around the wordmark wasn’t semi-transparent.
Weirdly bothersome, but still a great identity!
