Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery

Just before Christmas I went to the new Nottingham Contempoary Art Gallery. There has been quite alot of hype about it being featured in grafik and on some TV shows. I wasn't a massive fan of the building. I like the concept of putting lace over the eterior concrete, its a really nice mixture of textures and really brings the building into the area of Nottingham which it is set (Lace Market). The stains downstairs have a real modernist feel to them too with concrete being used for the floors, walls and ceiling. It is really nice as they haven't treated the concrete, it is pure.

Graphic Design can appear in unlikely places, in this case on a seat. The Gallery has used the logo as a seating point, quite tricky to see in my photos but its quite a clever idea. I like how it lines up right when viewed straight on, but as you move the letters become disjointed. I like!

The logo is a bit weird... back to front. Well... very weird as they have loads which I cant understand at all. If you look through the guide every page has a different logo by a different artist, not designer. WHY!?
