Central Saint Martins

An identity fit for a world class art college

Since early 2018 we’ve been working with Central Saint Martins to create a new visual identity for the College. Designed to look like part of the UAL family, but distinct enough to reflect its own attitude and individuality as a world class art college. At it’s heart is a boisterous, anarchic and unpredictable typeface. The new typeface is paired with a restrained primary colour palette, and a visual system that brings cohesion but also the flexibility to represent the diverse creative community within the College walls.
