The British Academy Summer Showcase is an annual celebration of pioneering research from across the humanities and social sciences. Fifteen interactive exhibits are hosted alongside pop-up talks, workshops and performances, bringing the best new research to life. The exhibition brand aims to support the Academy’s vision of a world in which everyone is inspired to think more deeply about what it means to be human.
When curiosity is alive it fuels imagination and enables people to discover amazing things. The Summer Showcase identity is a celebration the curiosity that drives humanity forward. Building on our recent rebrand of the Academy, the Summer Showcase identity playfully reimagines the application of the brand’s two primary typefaces. The resulting brand offers a framework for unifying disparate ideas from across the disciplines.
