Spike Island identity

Since 2017, Kellenberger–White have overseen the new design direction for the visual identity of Spike Island in Bristol.

Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design, home to a gallery, café and working space for artists and designers. Spike helps emerging artists develop their work in shared studios with production and business facilities on hand, and we work in close partnership with them on their designs.

As well as a brand refresh and the art direction of a major new website, we regularly produce marketing campaign materials that focus on a strategy to bring in new audiences of people who may not yet engage with contemporary art.

Building a collaborative and now long-standing relationship with Spike’s artists, curators and directors, Kellenberger–White has unified Spike’s identity within a colourful and rigorously playful visual language, across both print and digital formats.
