Tou Scene

Housed in what was once Stavanger's largest brewery, Tou Scene represents a creative hub of studios and workspaces as well as significant arenas for public performance and exhibition.

Plantbased helped to establish the visual identity of the venue at its inauguration. We designed a custom typeface, and helped to develop a monthly poster format, as well as a distinctive online presence and generalist branding.

The core concept of the work was to challenge bias and prejudice against 'difficult' art forms and angular music by meeting these head-on. We emphasised that Tou existed precisely in order to foster such forms of expression. Perhaps the centre's status today as an enduring cultural institution bears testament to the validity of this vision.
