Entry Description

HagueTalks is an international traveling online and offline meeting place for creative minds, peace inventors and game changers in the field of peace and justice. The first HagueTalks event took place at the Peace Palace in The Hague and for future events will be traveling to New York, South Africa and further. For each location, the colour scheme is created from the prominent colours of that particular place. And therefore each location will have it’s own identity. The logo displays the start of the peace process and consequently the chain reaction that follows. This chain reaction is also translated into the moving typography which can be found throughout the whole identity. HagueTalks is a stage and breeding place for new ideas and perspectives, a forum for discussion and a starting point for concrete action. It is the platform that sets the ball rolling on the idea of gaining peace and justice.

About Designer

We enjoy working at the cutting edge, challenging ourselves and those around us, looking further than the length of our nose. Our way of working is between that of a design studio and an ad agency. We create conceptually and strategically strong projects with clear, clever designs and solutions. We think before we act, but we act before we talk. That is what we call Smart Design. Smart Design on a daily basis means that we work for very different clients, like museums, cities, government, educational institutes, charity but also pr-marketing agencies and commercial clients. We like to work on total concepts, to create not only the logo but also the name of the product, the image, the message, the strategy. This results in a strong graphic design in which the form follows the content. And because of this we are a multi-disciplinary agency that works in the field of identity design, publication design, event design, exhibition design, campaign design.
