Gill Sans. Its current digital version (black) with the Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft's version (red). Redrawn characters by Phil Baines & Natalie Braune by kind permission of Monotype.

The regular seeks to restore the original metal versions of selected characters; the light and bold are are an experiment on our part, no precedent for this consistency across the weights of Gill Sans exists as far as I know.

A new comprehensive identity for the Ditchling Museum of Art & Craft in the UK.

The first public appearance of the new namestyle was in press ads in the Museums' Journal, March 2013. (The website URL is the old one).

All nameplates and direction signs are Arizona printed on Valchromat. While exhibition graphics are fixed with hidden fixings, these are face-fixed as though part of the building. It seemed a pragmatic decision for a building concerned with arts & crafts.

The 'arra' on this map owes more to London Transport signage than the standard museum 'arra' but works better in this context.

Not quite resolved logo from the presentation on 20 November 2012. Part of the whole HLF-funded project was a curatorial refocussing of the museum and this resulted in a new name. The proposed namestyle foregrounds that shift. The + is used instead of 'and' or '&' to reflect the centrality of the catholic guild in all this art & craft. At this point the position, size and colour of 'of' was unresolved, as were other spatial niceties.
