NEST+M (New Explorations into Science Technology and Math) is a public K-12 school in Manhattan's Lower East Side. They wanted to get away from the expected crest typically associated with learning institutions as a way of differentiation the school from the field of options available to students. We created a flexible system of marks that allowed the school to highlight their core competencies and instill a sense of pride with the students in their chosen disciplines. Additionally, the system allows for sub-branding individual activities and extracurricular organizations.
