Deltaworkers Identity

Branding for our friends and their European artist/research residency program that was based here in New Orleans over the years. Its application across posters, zines, artist books and self-published works, helped solidify a blending of our collective imaginations.

The design challenge was to combine the name Deltaworkers, in a non-traditional way, referencing not only dutch-typography, but combining it with imagery that could be separated from the type itself. My proposal referenced the triangular elements of the ‘deltawerken’, an important dam/spillway in the Netherlands, since both geographies share an on-going struggle with water.

The modularity of the logotype and its implementation into various printed matter made for an instantly recognizable, but oddly branded communication throughout its years of programming.
