18/04/2013Sumo’s killer typographic design

The publicity for the ‘Death to Death and Other Small Tales’ exhibition (what a title!) at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art caught my eye because it is so unusual to see a typographic solution to an art exhibition. It made me curious to find out what’s behind it.

It was designed by Sumo, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, and on their website they explain the idea behind the design:

The “Death to Death…” exhibition identity is intended to engage potential visitors. It invites them to interact with the design in a similar way they will navigate around the exhibition itself: at first seeing elements which could be perceived as jumbled and confused, and then looking further, creating pairings and making connections, eventually understanding the complete picture.
There is also a practical side to the design solution – because there was no one artwork image that could be used to justifiably sum up the complete story of the exhibition, it was decided that a purely typographic route was the best way to circumnavigate this problem whilst simultaneously making a virtue out of the long and potentially difficult to use exhibition title.
