Kresen Kernow brand identity



The brand identity has been revealed for Cornwall’s new archive centre, Kresen Kernow.

The new brand mark was taken to public consultation with over 600 surveys completed to gather public opinion.

It was developed by Truro-based agency, ABG Design, and reflects the distinctive architecture and buildings in which the new archive will be housed.

Kresen Kernow will be an “exemplary”, modern archive and library space, bringing together the world’s largest collection of manuscripts, books and documents related to Cornwall, as well as the Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and the Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Record, for the first time.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council, Kresen Kernow will also safeguard the historic Redruth Brewery building at the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

ABG’s managing director, Howard Miles, said: “We are really pleased to be a part of such a prestigious project and to be the instrumental design agency setting out the key principles of the project’s new brand Identity and communications approach.”
