The main design element of the birthday campaign was a well-known self-portrait of Franz von Stuck interpreted in the style of the artist’s villa. The key visual developed for the campaign is based on the museum logo: A striking square found in the floor tiles of the villa’s historic rooms.

The key visual was featured in all campaign communication for the entire year, including posters, programs, flyers and a special edition of the museum’s annual ticket.

Villa Stuck

Brand development

Built as a »total artwork« at the end of the 19th century, Franz von Stuck’s villa in Munich now houses a museum designed to combine Art Nouveau with contemporary art. The program concept and communication pick up on this constellation and translate von Stuck’s progressive spirit into the modern day.
