About this project
The Delta Coalition is the world's first international coalition of governments created to 'get things done to increase the resilience of urban deltas'. The coalition facilitates discussions, exchanges of knowledge, innovation and creativity between the participating members. Studio Inherent was asked by the Ministry of foreign affairs in the Netherlands to create a visual identity and website.
We designed a ligature that functions as a connecting element between colours and photography. The selected colour-palette consists of a few base-colours which may be mixed to create a new set of colours – a reference to the idea of collaborations between parallel and overlapping domains of expertise and knowledge.
12 countries have joined the Delta Coalition so far. The maintenance of the website rotates yearly between the countries. The identity is documented in a styleguide which is accessible online for the coalition. Typeface 'Ubuntu' was chosen for its extensive set of characters and free license in a wide range of languages. This way the identity can easily be adapted and applied by each member-country.
