Winner: Graphic design project of the year 2019. Re-public designed the visual identity for Hafnia-Hallen, Denmark’s largest multi-purpose sports centre, located in Copenhagen.
The studio designed the new visual identity, including the logo, signage and way-finding, for the centre after a major refurbishment. The graphics include clean lines, vibrant colours and clear-cut typography with a bold yet informal look and feel. The design concept is based on an adaptation of the floor line markings of the different courts, fields and tracks of Hafnia-Hallen.
Judges comments: "Re-public have transformed a space that is typically not very beautiful using clear graphics. They have addressed a complex task in an elegantly simple way. The playful graphics appeal to the different ages of the people who use the centre and does the job of way-finding successfully. The lines they have used are an immediately recognisable universal symbol of sports."
