An archive of explorations, prototypes, inspirations.
Inspired by the quircky and innovative nature of the theatre, this project is a redesign of the Identity system of the Steppenwolf Theatre. The idea of legs to represent the Steppenwolf came from the theatre's existance as an ensemble, a collective of people who work together and take on different personas. The mark is inspired by the saying "Whichever way you throw me, I will stand." The logo and typographic style is applied throughout the system in different variations, bringing the brand together into a cohesive unit.
