    “In collaboration with the Conan Doyle Estate, Exhibits Development Group, Geoffrey M. Curley & Associates, OMSI and The Museum of London, OVO developed a complete visual identity system and branding for The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes.” — brandsbyovo.com

    While Octant comes with a number of nonstandard ligatures (like ‘gg’), the ‘HE’ and ‘OC’ pairs in the wordmark are not included in the font, but were created ad hoc. The ‘L’ is a repurposed ‘Ł’ and the ‘H’ actually is Octant’s ‘Ħ’ — off the shelf, the typeface apparently was not fancy enough.
