V&A Dundee exhibition campaign
We created and delivered the campaign for the new museum's second exhibition.
As the V&A Dundee’s second major exhibition after opening, Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt provides an opportunity for the museum to engage new audiences and attract repeat visits - cementing the museum’s pivotal role in Scotland as a place to explore the designed world and find inspiration.
We developed a campaign concept that reflects the innovative and evolving design field of videogames, enticing both devotees and ‘atypical’ gaming exhibition visitors.
In order to portray the significance of gaming and game design we felt it was important to avoid any clichés or common tropes with the typography used. With this is mind we looked for a modern, almost industrial style that feels progressive and impactful, but still has a quirky character.
Taking the idea of linear progression further, and influenced by games such as Monument Valley’s isometric viewport, we drew a series of 3D-inspired letters as support graphics that can be used independently, or combined to form a more graphic representation of the word ‘videogames’.
This series of letters can be rendered and used in a number of ways, providing a flexible and playful asset for all activation, from digital to experiential.
Since the campaign launched, V&A Dundee has been announced as a finalist for the biggest museum prize in the world, the Art Fund Museum of the Year.
