• Branding
  • Naming
  • Strategy

Through our identity system we positioned the library as a destination for education, creative expression, and meaningful social engagement. In our final design Glendale’s library has been celebrated as a reflection of the city’s rich history, geography, and diverse community.

Clever listened to our vision and created branding that is relevant and timeless; and we had fun in the process.

Promoting Connectivity

There’s no doubt, libraries have changed. But looking beyond books and card catalogs, Glendale’s Downtown Central Library has evolved into an important hub for the community. Our design process focused on the intersections of people and place, and the alchemy that happens when they come together.

Description Background

Uncovering architectural elements to instill into the identity system was a humbling experience.

It was a constant reminder that honest information leads to true inspiration. It is the way we uncover the layers of meaning and possibility often lying dormant within a brand.
