The story of an industrial revolution
Visual identity and exhibition design for the Textile Museum
MADE IN MIDTJYLLAND is a permanent exhibition at the Textile Museum in Herning. The exhibition tells the story of how the birth and boom of the textile industry, shaped the region of Central Denmark in the 1950s.
We were tasked with designing the exhibition identity and graphics. The visual expression makes use of lines and typography in order to create the illusion of thread and fabric. By expressing this on industrial machine materials, we brought together the cultural and historic themes of the exhibition.
Work originally done by HEAVY™️ – Now a part of IDna Group.
All graphics was designed as individual layers to give the exhibition a simple and dynamic visual language.
The graphics were printed on industrial steel plates and layered on top of each other as a reference to layers of fabric. On the plates we used laser cut graphics to further emphasise the idea of weaving historical content onto the walls.
The graphic concept was also used as an integrated part of the general wayfinding.

Following the strategy-work we did for Willumsen’s Museum, we have created a new visual identity for the museum. An identity that holds more than just the artist himself – but now to a greater extent, holds his spirit, supporting J. F. Willumsen in being eternally relevant.
By personifying the art centre – Nikolaj – and letting it speak – “Let there be art”, Nikolaj preaches its passion for art through “Biblical” quotes. By saying, “I’m not a church” – what you see is not necessarily what you get!
“REPUBLIQUE is an international theatre, which builds a bridge between the classical theatre’s powerful stories and the physical theatre’s innovative, provocative expression”. The task was to build an identity that matches the vision of the Danish theatre based in Copenhagen.
Teaterbilletter is an online ticket portal, covering more than 100 theatres in Denmark. During the development of the visual identity it was important that the visual identity would not just express their product (tickets) but also the idea that the ticket is what grants you access to a world of experiences and magic.
