Curating Curiosity for a World-Class Research Institution

The Academy of Natural Sciences

Since 1812, the Academy of Natural Sciences has proudly served as a beacon for researchers, scientists, and the public at large in the city of Philadelphia.

Rooted in History

The exhibits and collection of over 18 million specimens broaden the academic horizons of people young and old. They came to AgileCat to rediscover the heart of their mission and inspire new energy within their historic walls.

A New Logo for the Naturally Curious

AgileCat created the new logo which strikes the perfect balance between organic and organized, complementing a highly structured and established organization. Inspired by the uniqueness of a fingerprint, it symbolizes the layers of curiosity, knowledge, research, education, and discovery within the museum.

The Brand

AgileCat developed design systems for events, festivals, membership materials, general museum marketing, and more to ensure the Academy’s voice and tone was always consistent.


Culturally and academically, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University will be a Philadelphia fixture for our future generations. AgileCat’s branding and design work, literature, and strategy have fostered growth in visits, membership, and donations.

"We consider AgileCat our strategic partner, not just our creative agency. They understand and embrace the Academy’s vision, audiences and culture. They created our logo, developed our brand guidelines, produced complex campaigns and overall strengthened our brand. They consistently meet deadlines and are always willing to go the extra mile."
