Design studio OK-RM have worked on the branding for the Strelka Institute, a major cultural organisation in Moscow. I have to say, I just learned about Strelka (the institute and press) last sunday, but its definitely worth mentioning.
Strelka Institute is a non-profit organization aimed at generating knowledge, producing new ideas and making them come true. Its lecture halls and studios provide free tuition for international young specialists with backgrounds in architecture, design, social sciences, etc. Its courtyard hosts open lectures, conferences and film screenings. Its bar provides both a place for the social networking of creative people from around the globe and a source of Strelka’s financial backing: what the bar earns goes to support the institute.
Strelka is an educational centre that is open to the world and ready to share. What happens here spills out into social exchange.
