• ST–DUO, Vision document for N8W8 R'dam
Driving urgency into a bold identity for Rotterdams night council. The N8W8 R'dam foundation is an independent advisory board that is committed to a vibrant, socially inclusive and culturally diverse nightlife in Rotterdam. The unwavering energy and sense of urgency that powers N8W8 is packed into the identity. Hand-drawn elements to add personality and highlight elements, bold typography for attitude and muted colours to represent light, dark and the seriousness of the matters at hand. The logo is an hourglass to reflect the pressing need for action, which also represents the form of the number 8 in the name. In typography and graphics, symbolism tells the story of the brand through how it acts, speaks and interacts. This is just the foundation, we look forward to exploring the endless potential of this identity, stay tuned; N8W8's website is launching soon.
