Capturing possibility and optimism
As a new body, INE needed a vision and identity that reflected their spark and collaborative nature. Through workshops and conversations with their partners and stakeholders, Sail helped INE understand and articulate their vision.
Just like the INE landscape, the brand’s graphic system is ever-changing and ever- evolving. It uses movement and pattern through circular graphic shapes, each representing a moment of opportunity, an idea, knowledge shared and a newly emerged solution.
While their work is focused on the North East, INE’s vision is to become a national demonstrator for how universities can contribute to policy making. So our brand mark needed to be flexible in order to be adapted by other regions – whilst the larger radar subliminally represents the location of the North East, it allows other regions to adopt the framework and approach.
