The striking logo is impossible to ignore, highlighting the extraordinary aspects of art. Its three-dimensional design allows it to make a strong impact on any background. The bold color makes branded objects clearly visible from afar. The visual expression of the tagline »Kunst schafft neues Denken« (»Art creates new ways of thinking«) strengthens the association’s mission.

When unfolded, the BVDG corporate brochure reveals a poster — the perfect combination of information and the artistic ideal.
