The village is made up of many components, each of these needed its own graphic treatment. We created illustrated logos for them all, taking our inspiration from the original architectural drawings.

We built brand guidelines, including type systems and colour-ways, to streamline New Lanark’s communications.

Then and now, New Lanark has been a place for children to learn and play. O Street also had the opportunity to work on the Clearburn Nature Trail, giving youngsters a fun way to learn about nature.
