Founded in 1829 by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington, King’s College London is ranked as one of the top 25 universities in the World.
King’s has played a major role in many advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and boasts 9 Nobel Prize winners.
Despite its prestigious standing, the university’s physical presence was often missed.
The Strand Campus was made up of an assemblage of different buildings along a 90m stretch of a busy London Street. Rather than put up additional signs, we worked with graphic designers Atelier Works to implement an historical time frieze, encompassing the entire campus frontage – engaging with the public, encouraging a new crop of inspired students and celebrating nearly 180 years of achievement.
Clear, authoritative management conducted with patience and geniality – Whybrow are a pleasure to work with.
