Museum Logos: Drawing The Line

It’s red
Don’t make the same mistake as me and pronounce it ‘vanda’
The ampersand is to stop it being MAAAS
It’s red.
It’s green.

But how could this come to be?

Someone more naïve than me would say this conspiracy (and yes, it’s a conspiracy) of smushy-letter-diagonal-lines is merely the product of design firms finding it hard to capture the multi-faceted work of what a museum does. But I say no! There is clearly a powerful shadowy network behind all this.
