Dumbarton Oaks begins rebranding initiative

Insomniac Design has been appointed as the creative agency of record to help undergo a complete rebranding process. Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection is the legacy of Robert and Mildred Woods Bliss to Harvard University and to the humanities. The multiple aspects of the Blisses’ gift include the historic garden and buildings, world-class collections for researchers and the public to enjoy, and generous support for fellowships and scholarly endeavors on the local, national, and international levels. The research institute supports the humanities, with a particular focus on Byzantine (the culture of the medieval eastern Mediterranean), Pre-Columbian, and Garden and Landscape Studies. Support for research takes the form of residential fellowships, grants, short-term research awards, conferences, and class visits. Beyond this programming, the institute publishes scholarly works through its own publication department. In addition, it produces the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (DOML) series, which is published by Harvard University Press.
