Brand campaigns shortlist 2013

Theatre

Silo Theatre identity, by Alt Group

New Zealand-based consultancy Alt Group developed a new identity for the Silo Theatre, in Auckland. The consultancy says it was looking to reinforce the theatre’s edgey, avant-garde reputation, and move away from show-based identities. The new identity sees the letters of the Silo name arranged to form a face, which the consultancy says ‘references the Greek comedy and tragedy masks’. For the 2012 season, Alt Group developed a surreal campaign based on physical collage.
