The NanoFab

Logo. Branding. Posters.

The NanoFab is an open-access micro- and nanofabrication research facility within the University of Alberta (U of A), for use by academic and industrial users across Canada.

Diva was asked to develop a logo and brand for this facility that could be used as a stand-alone identity, while still associating with the U of A brand. The logo we developed is a modern and vibrant interpretation of the three disks used in nanofabrication. These three disks also denote the main areas within the facility: yellow for Advanced Lithography, maroon for Thin Film Deposition, and blue for Etching.

A large-format internal poster was subsequently created using the same colour scheme, fonts and imagery provided.
