Published 13-04-09 09:30

Following a procurement process, Nationalmuseum in Stockholm has appointed the London-based brand consultancy Jane Wentworth Associates.

The project will start in autumn 2013, setting the direction for the opening of the new Nationalmuseum in 2017. While the 150-year-old building is being renovated, the museum’s operations will also be evaluated and improved. The time is also right for an extensive development of the brand:

"We welcome Jane Wentworth and her associates on board on the journey towards the new Nationalmuseum. They are leading experts in this area and they’ve completed many successful projects together with their clients. In addition, they also offer us an international perspective in the process of re-defining the museum’s vision and brand," says Berndt Arell, Director General. 

Jane Wentworth Associates are experienced in their field, having worked for ten years specialising in developing brands in the global cultural sector. Other clients include V&A, National Museums of Scotland, Statens Museum for Kunst in Denmark, National Museum of Qatar and soon  Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.

Brand strategist Jane Wentworth, Director, says, "This is a once-in-a-lifetime project and it will be an honour to work with Nationalmuseum in Sweden. The museum has such a great heritage and an exciting future. The extensive renovation of the museum's main home at Blasieholmen will create a perfect opportunity to re-define the story they want to tell and to make their superb collections relevant to future audiences."

The project will include analysis, strategy, development of both visual and verbal identity, and plenty of staff engagement. Through a systematic definition of the organisation’s mission, internally and externally, the museum will be able to serve better the needs of its different target groups and stakeholders.
