Logo and visual identity for The Oxygen Group
client: Ministry of Research, Science + Technology
Formed in 2005, The Oxygen Group is a forum of bright, younger scientists who are among the emerging leaders in New Zealand’s science sector.
Having designed the visual identity and brand for MoRST, I was engaged to participate at strategic level on the team with The Oxygen Group. The resulting design and typography work included the usual stationery requirements, presentation slides, online material, and publication design.
In 2010, The Oxygen Group Story was published five years after its formation. The wiro-bound A5 book was presented to CEO of MoRST, Helen Anderson, in part as acknowledgement of her influence at the helm of MoRST, and in part as a record of a moment in time.
One of the flagship projects by The Oxygen Group was Runninghot!, an annual conference that investigates approaches for an engaged, connected, multidisciplinary, wise science for the future. The first conference, ‘Running Hot! Science in New Zealand’ was held in 2006. The design package included the visual id, usual stationery items, banners both online and physical, and the conference book.
