When Pink Freud met Salvador Dalai

Design of a membership scheme for the Southbank Centre.

With ex-colleague Ollie, I worked on the identity for this membership scheme.

The client came to us with the idea of these witty, memorable expressions, (if you were in doubt as to the origin of the cryptic combinations, a caption offered a full explanation on each of the designs) derived from people to have appeared there over the years, and asked us to come up with an identity that worked within the confines of the Southbank Centre identity.

Given the strength of the witty names idea, we wanted to keep the graphic design to a minimum. The striking colour combinations were created by exploiting the full breadth of the colour palette as laid out in the guidelines.
