Our new logo was designed by Dublin-based creative agency, Red Dog and was introduced in St. Kilian’s in March 2017.
The logo is made up of two components: a graphic ‘K’ motif and the descriptor text. The St. Kilian’s ‘K’ is inspired by Josef Albers’ Kombination Schrift alphabet; a modular lettering system based upon ten basic shapes derived from a circle and a square. This efficient typographic design was typical of the early 20th century work derived from the Bauhaus school in Germany.
This German design-influenced motif, combined with the descriptor text set in ‘Brandon Grotesque’, a German sans serif typeface, ensures that the logo is contemporary and accessible, yet rooted in the traditions of German design.
