You must create the name, logo and applied identity for the Museum of the Circus. Consider its displays, activities, programme of events and so on. Is museum even the right word to describe it? Should it capture the very essence of the history and range of Circus life? Will it have a theme such as Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, or the heyday of performing animals? When you enter the museum, will you be a Rube, or will you be cast as
a Carnie? Whatever approach you adopt, ensure you use it as a vehicle to express your typographic skills.
