Stephen Hawking Foundation

To design for one of the greatest minds of all time is indeed an honour. Our brief was that Professor Hawking and the Trustees of the Stephen Hawking Foundation wanted a simple, unfussy logo that represented the values of the Foundation and could be used on invitations for a small event that was about to happen.

The event turned out to be a private dinner at the Royal Institution where Eddie Redmayne and Professor Hawking launched the Foundation to a select audience of founding members.

Our approach was indeed simple – a single thumbprint supported by a classic font and style. the logo was immediately used on the invitations for the event, printed white on a black background.

Within a couple of weeks we were given the opportunity to design the Christmas Card for the Foundation – considering to whom the card was going, we were once again truly honoured to be able to help.
