Tilley & Tilley has been appointed to create an identity for a public archive of architect Sir Basil Spence’s lifetime works.


The collection, handed to the Royal Commission of Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland three years ago by Sir Basil Spence’s family, includes office drawings, files, photographs and models.


The initiative has been organised by the Royal Commission, the National Galleries of Scotland, The Lighthouse and Scotland’s Centre for Architecture. It will be used for marketing materials, associated exhibitions and a website. The brand identity will reflect Sir Basil Spence’s personality, says Martin Tilley, director of Tilley & Tilley.


Tilley & Tilley is also undertaking a project for the Tate Modern, designing a book to accompany the exhibition on Russian artist, Wassily Kandinsky, to take place from 22 June to 1 October.
