A perspective shifting identity that cements the iconic architecture of the silo and creates a platform for creative expression and communication.

The Kunstsilo brand and identity is a celebration of the silo. Drawing inspiration from the physical forms, both historic and of the new building, the identity brings to life characteristic elements in new ways. The tall proportions, cylindrical forms, striking voids and modernist brutalism have all inspired the creative platform. The brand strategy of 'shift of perspective' comes to life through the core visual elements both visually and in the way we communicate to our audiences.
