Museum of Brisbane Rebrand

The Museum of Brisbane explores the seemingly ordinary people and places of Brisbane Queensland Australia, and uncovers their unexpected and fascinating stories.

In 2012 the Museum closed it’s doors while settling into it’s newly refurbished home in the City Town Hall. During this time Pounce was commissioned to create a new look for the Museum’s branding when it would re-open in 2013.

To create the Museum’s new brand, Pounce combined a contemporary typeface with art deco like elements to convey the modern nature of the institution, while still honouring the the grand and distinct personality of the building which it lives in.

Open House Melbourne

The annual Australian event Open House Melbourne (OHM) is a free 2 day weekend experience, inviting the public to explore incredible buildings for free through guided tours. This year, it was our great pleasure to work in partnership with OHM to create content and design for the 2012 Children’s Program. 4 mascots were created to help young OHM attendees explore Melbourne city and were visually based on the ‘place’ icon from the Open House Melbourne logo. The program’s graphics were bold and simple to attract a young reader, as well as textured and layered to appeal to an older audience. The Children’s Program was filled with activities designed to encourage engagement with the city, it’s buildings and public transport, and was available for free during the weekend event held on the 28th and 29th of July 2012.
