European Think Tanks Group

The European Think Tanks Group (ETTG) brings together five leading European think tanks working on international development and humanitarian issues. I was asked to create a visual identity in which all 5 institutes can identify themselves and which strengthens their common goals. Their new visual identity shows the colours of the institutes logo’s in a dynamic cloud, representing the process of collaboration. The shapes where created by bringing together randomly cut pieces of paper as a symbol for the individual contribution of each member in the think tank group. The result is colourful and dynamic style that works as an ‘umbrella’ for the 5 institutes, under which they can publish their common research papers.

The think tanks are:

The European Centre for Development Policy Management

The German Development Institute

The Institute of International Affairs

The Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations

The Overseas Development Institute
