Reed all about it

Snape Maltings

Snape Maltings is a new brand for a new organisation, unifying the arts and retail operations that have co-existed on the site for more than 50 years. The new Snape Maltings is one of the world’s leading centres of music and a visitor destination of outstanding natural beauty.

Silk Pearce created the unified identity, strengthening the relationship between the once-separate operations and establishing the new brand.

The design, inspired by the reeds that surround the site, is based on a pattern of hand-cut paper strips which create the letters ‘SNAPE MALTINGS’. The irregular pattern forms the unique shape of each letter.

The pattern is used as a device on its website, packaging, brochures and flyers. And the palette of core colours - a green, red, grey and blue - is reminiscent of the reeds, bricks, slate and sky of the buildings and landscape.
