Visual identity and stationary for COOP.SOPHIA

COOP.SOPHIA is a cooperative conducting research for social innovation based in the bilingual town Bolzano-Bozen, South Tyrol, Italy.
The coop. consists of a core group of 5 members that co-involve other researchers, professors and experts for different specific research and consulting projects.

In a participatory and open process we developed a new visual identity including business cards, letter paper, info flyers, a folder for conferences and an one-pager website.

The visual identity takes inspiration from biological cultures seen through the lens of a microscope. Just like biologists or chemists study the transformation of bacteria in a micro way, the members of COOP.SOPHIA study the transformation of society in a macro way by conducting transdisciplinary research to foster and support projects of social innovation for cooperative businesses, institutions and the industry.
