The graphic identity required a simple to use, built-in, flexibility allowing for an ecosystem applications across print, web and event.
As design is a visual art, it is essential to incorporate visual elements that showcase the museum's collections, exhibitions, and events. The choice to use a strong, bold mark was to allow it to also coexist with other elements, as a background or frame, giving priority to the imagery. Similarly, the color pallete required a flexibility with enough hues to carry various images and comfortably coexist with reproductions of artworks, photography or design cutouts.
