Every two years the Dolf Henkes Award is handed to a promising Rotterdam artist. TENT wanted to step up their game, making the award compete with other serious art prices in its league.
Nonstopcollective was asked to give the award and exposition a serious boost without loosing it’s Rotterdam identity and visitors.
For the visual identity we decided to use golden elements on rough materials, reflecting the chique award ceremony in the harbor-city. The constant style of modern typography and golden flakes was translated in all graphic elements for the exhibition and it’s award ceremony at Tent contemporary art gallery.
