Bear Rene Identity
Bear Rene are an interior design business in the South of England. Marque were appointed to create a new brand identity and positioning for the business. An identity system was created which reflected the craftsmanship, detailing and sensitivity of their work on luxury home interiors. A monogram was developed which in turn can be used as a repeat pattern which is embossed or printed using thermography or foil onto a range of communications materials, as well as fabrics to be sold in the Bear Rene Studio.

The Common Guild Communications
The Common Guild is dedicated to producing a dynamic programme of contemporary visual arts projects. Marque has developed the organisation’s identity over the past 4 years. It has evolved and grown in parallel with the projects undertaken by The Common Guild commissioning team. The printed collateral that we design for the Guild’s ongoing programme of events is a changing representation of reactions to the programme’s visual content. Its emphasis is placed on the artist’s work, with key aspects of each show communicated through the considered use of imagery, materials, typography and format.

British Council, Dandelion
Marque were commissioned to create a book and exhibition to celebrate the making of the UK Pavilion, showcased at the Shanghai World Expo in 2010. The pavilion by Heatherwick Studio — known as the ‘Seed Cathedral’ and laterally named ‘The Dandelion’, in terms of innovation, was by far the most intriguing of the national pavilions. It truly integrated concept, container and content.
The 180 page book, set in English and Mandarin takes the reader on the journey from the birth of the idea, through the construction process, to the architectural impact it has had. The exhibition, constructed of transparent acrylic panels, featured a grid of 35mm referencing the core component at the heart of the Dandelion: 60,000 acrylic rods, set into a cube comprising of 60,000 35mm square holes. The exhibition made up of perspex boxes contained graphics as well as a projection unit showing a documentary on the project. It is currently travelling to ten cities throughout China and will educate locals of the project – one which played a major part in changing perceptions of British design in China.
