The Institute of Historical Research was founded in 1921 and is one of nine institutes that comprise the University of London’s School of Advanced Study. The IHR is dedicated to training the next generation of historians, and to producing and facilitating ambitious, innovative historical research with over 120,000 students in London, and a further 50,000 studying worldwide.
We were actually working on website designs for the School of Advanced Studies at the time but took the opportunity to present concepts for the IHR branding. We demonstrated without loosing the heritage of the IHR how the brand could be brought up to date in a modern and contemporary way especially along side the use of such a vast library of images to choose from. Sadly the designs were never used and the brand for the IHR remains the same but we loved what we presented so want you to see it.
