Having spent some time up in Scotland earlier this summer (which I duly ranted on about here) I have to confess I still don’t get the whole Glasgow vs Edinburgh rivalry. Suffice to say, inhabitants of both are staunch advocates of their respective cities (the former with a certain cultural hauteur, the latter with a kind of snarling certainty).
But it seems that Glasgow based studio Freytag Anderson are doing their bit to bring the intercity foes together if some of their recent work is anything to go by. The studio, run by Daniel Freytag and Greig Anderson, have done some blisteringly good holistic identity work for the Scottish National Gallery (based in the heart of Edinburgh) ranging from invites and posters to signage and wall captions. But they have proved themselves especially adept at maximising the potential of the gallery’s bold, columned facade, bringing it to life to reflect the exhibitions within.
