Signage System

University of Television and Film Munich

Back Download

The information and signage system for the new building of the University of Television and Film Munich is closely linked to the architecture and purpose of the building complex, which also encompasses public space. To ensure easy orientation, the university’s logo and important information were applied, almost like projections, directly onto the concrete and glass facades for high visibility. More detailed information is contained on distinctively designed black signs that wrap around corners almost like shadows, so that they can be easily seen from the floors and the central staircase. The white typography, which is closely aligned to the black sign edges, creates an appealing interplay of juxtaposing light and shade.
