Bibliothèque website >>

"A cornerstone of Liberum's approach is to 'cut through' other market noise to research that counts for all its corporate clients," explains Bibliothèque founding partner Tim Beard. 

"This dynamic attitude, is reflected in a new logotype and visual language which embodies a fresh, distinctive, and tailored approach to its business," he adds.

The Liberum research note, he says, "is one of the hardest working tools in the Libeurm communications palette. It needs to convey detailed information, to analysts and investors, with both efficiency and clarity. Bibliotheque developed the systems and visual language, that has been translated into templates for all research communications."

An article on the project can also be found in Design Week.
