Tate puts Hillman in the picture for identity

Dragon International has redesigned the packaging for Aquapac, a range of water and snow-proof cases which protect valuables outdoors.

Pentagram partner David Hillman is working on an identity for the planned Tate Gallery of Modern Art at London’s Bankside power station, due to open in five years’ time.

A final decision will not be taken until 1998, but Hillman has already come up with a style for the Bankside project. “I’ve assumed it’s going to be called the Tate Gallery of Modern Art, but it could get a major sponsor who wants to call it by a company name,” says Hillman.

“We’ll probably work with David again for Bankside,” confirms a Tate spokesman.

Hillman designed the umbrella identity for the Tate’s galleries in London, Liverpool and Leeds.

He has recently created documentation for the Bankside

project’s bids for National Lottery cash. The gallery received 50m from the Millennium Commission in November.
