Working in partnership with local residents, Platt Hall is seeking a graphic designer, or design team.
The work will develop a new visual identity to engage residents and communities in the neighbourhoods of Rusholme, Moss Side and Fallowfield, as key stakeholders in the transformation of this historic local landmark.
They require a coherent but flexible visual identity for this transitional period, that will enable them to:
- Build key relationships within the local neighbourhood, situating the Hall as part of the wider community
- Clearly communicate the message that Platt Hall is changing and will evolve during this time
- Invite local residents and communities to be part of that change and help shape the future identity of the Hall.
- Reflect the rich visual and material qualities of the Hall and its associated collections. These include dress and textiles, domestic objects and handicrafts, paintings and drawings from all over the world.
- Speak to the diverse cultures of Rusholme, Moss Side and Fallowfield. This neighbourhood comprises a rich mix of cultures, histories, styles, languages – its residents come from all over the world.
- Visually embody the transitional nature of this project and that Platt Hall is in the process of becoming.
- Sit alongside the wider Manchester Art Gallery visual identity – Platt Hall is part of Manchester Art Gallery, which has its own distinct brand and house style.
There is a budget of up to £6000 for the design, implementation and delivery of this project.
