Fachhochschule Brandenburg Identity

Fachhochschule Brandenburg Identity

When Fachhochschule Brandenburg approached Thomas Manss & Company with the task to rejuvenate the college's identity, initial research suggested that for the 3000 students, the idyllic surroundings with their myriad waterways and leisure facilities were a big draw.

Housed in former army barracks, the austere brick exterior of the college building provides a stark contrast to the lush backdrop and has long been the basis for the college symbol. The newly designed mark redresses the balance between these two dominant elements and introduces the water theme with a simple design intervention that leaves the symbol still proudly sporting its architectural origins.
