Visual Toolkit

We created a brand strategy and visual toolkit that telegraphs the organization's core values of being intimate, bold, and illuminating. The color palette was chosen to activate and create a strong connection to Hopper’s work. Pulled from five iconic Hopper paintings: Nighthawks, Room in Brooklyn, Automat, Chop Suey, and Morning Sun, the warm and engaging colors serve a dual purpose of standing out and drawing viewers in.

The logotype was inspired by the time, work, and life of Edward Hopper. A strategic choice was made to include “Museum & Study Center” in the lockup of the logo to build awareness of the Edward Hopper House’s new direction. Additionally, the identity was designed with the flexibility to accommodate different messages to highlight organizational initiatives. 

The new brand elevates the legacy of Edward Hopper and puts the organization on a course to fulfill its expanded mission.
