Merce Cunningham Trust

Having worked with the likes of Andy Warhol, Radiohead, and Daniel Arsham, Merce Cunningham has proven to be one of dance's most influential voices of the 20th Century. Since his passing, his trust has been tasked to keep his legacy alive through teaching classes, educating future dancers, and digitizing his works.

To celebrate the centennial of Merce Cunningham, his trust was ready for a refresh of their site and an identity to mark his 100 year anniversary.

01 — A Dynamic Mark For The Centennial

A series of marks were made for the Centennial that could be used across digital and print assets These marks were based off of Merce's iconic dance moves and each has a photographic companion that can be used for larger applications.
