…as new department selects two

The newly-merged Department for Environment, Transport and the Regions has, “after a lot of toing and froing”, narrowed the project to design its identity down to two consultancies, says a department spokeswoman.

This final shortlist came from a longer list of eight unnamed consultancies, which the department invited to take part in a paid creative pitch.

The two shortlisted groups have submitted four designs between them. These are being examined by the client. A decision on which to use is expected in the week beginning 15 September.

The winning consultancy will then begin on related identity work and a whole range of items, says the spokeswoman.

The Department of the Environment’s most recent logo was created by Hieroglyphics after an unpaid creative pitch (DW 15 November 1996).
