The brand identity for the European Handball Federation (EHF) rejuvenates the entire organization and all underlying tournaments. The new identity is designed to unify handball as a brand across digital and analog touch points.

Theatre REPUBLIQUE was created as the opposition to the classical Royal Danish Theater in Copenhagen. We designed the visual identity to capture this rebellious spirit. The identity was an eye-catching and took ownership of an iconic visual language that looked like nothing else on the Copenhagen cultural scene.

Even though the theatre is no more, the posters are still wildly popular and are today a part of the permanent exhibition at the Danish Design Museum in Copenhagen.

Designed as part of the design team at Scandinavian DesignLab.
