Learning on Screen is a charity and membership organisation that promotes the use of moving image and sound in UK Higher and Further education and research. In 2016 the organisation rebranded from The British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) and got in touch about devising the new visual identity.
The brief called for a clean, accessible style that highlighted the organisation’s work with moving image. It had to appeal to a core audience of students, teaching staff and academics. The typographic approach utilises a bold, contemporary sans serif font and sees the ‘on’ positioned within the 4:3 aspect ratio marks of a screen (also a nod to a camera’s viewfinder lines), creating a clear, versatile, rectangular form. The academic purple combines with a vibrant magenta and is further complimented by a lively secondary colour palette. The brand material incorporates high impact, full bleed photos with block colours, clean type and a line drawing illustrative style.
