The magazine design is playfully based on the design of Villa Stuck itself. All of the graphic elements featured consistently throughout the magazine are taken from the geometric details of the villa, such as the tiles and reliefs, for example. The accents are reminiscent of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, but still have a very contemporary, fresh look. Readers can learn more about the past, present and future of Villa Stuck through interesting interviews, articles and photographs.

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.
