There was general excitement this morning at L – P : Archaeology HQ because our #HIPUM stencils have arrived. We’re going to be using these to make signs for visitors to the museum as well as branding our display cases and stuff.
The logo was designed by Joca Yamamoto. It is based on the floor plan of the Roman phase of the temple, cleverly adapted to work as a stencil. The HIPUM letters have also been incorporated. The diagonal alignment is inspired by the famous air photo of the site.
The logo has been water-jet cut onto plastic by a mystery volunteer (we owe you a beer!). We took a few photos of the stencils to show you all how cool they look. Come along to the museum on the 27th or 28th to see what the results look like. We got one version of the logo lasercut on aluminium so that we can put it up on the wall afterwards.
