Bawdsey Radar, an unassuming collection of concrete bunkers close to the Suffolk Coast, was home to the world’s first chain radar station and as such, proved critical to Britain’s success in World War II.

The team at the charity behind its recent restoration is delighted with our new brand identity and website.

It’s energising working with such a committed group of knowledgeable enthusiasts and we’ve enjoyed every minute.

Our branding solution includes a logo featuring concentric circles which hint at radio waves and the symbol of the RAF. It also shows three As, simplified, in order to reflect the shape of the Bawdsey Radar towers – these were enormous structures, more than 300 ft tall, that dominated the surrounding landscape.

The website www.bawdseyradar.org.uk also pays respect to an historic colour scheme, alongside demonstrating the post-war developments in the use of radar and featuring a click-through history timeline, covering every significant event in the history of Radar from the early 1930s to the present day.
