Corporate Design

Nezu Private

The private logo and stationery for the director of the Nezu Museum and his wife have been conceptualised independently from the museum’s corporate design while also providing a subtle connection. Inspired by the initials of these two individuals, the design is marked by personalised colour coding: platinum for him and jade green for her. For joint correspondence, both colours are combined into a Möbius strip, a symbol of eternal bonding that represents the couple’s relationship. The logo maintains a traditional formal language, transferred into a modern and Western context.
