Perth Museum has unveiled its new uniform, and the recently recruited team who will debut the clothing when it opens later this month.

The new uniform, to be worn by all public-facing staff at the new Perth Museum and in the Café, was created by the Glasgow-based creative agency, Tangent.

Its t-shirt and sweatshirt feature screen-printed graphic representations of the Stone of Destiny, a design inspired by the new Perth Museum brand identity.

Helen Smout, Chief Executive at Culture Perth and Kinross said the uniform was a “fresh, dynamic look that reflects the team’s passion and enthusiasm.”

The museum’s front-of-house appointments make up part of its 29.5 full-time equivalent jobs, representing 36 new posts.

Public-facing staff at the new museum were recruited earlier this year, through an application process that attracted over 300 applicants.

The museum’s first exhibition fowling its £27m transformation project will be ‘Unicorn’, opening this Easter to “explore the cultural history of Scotland’s national animal from antiquity to the present day.”
