The Kunstmuseum Ahrenshoop, located in the eponymous German Baltic Sea resort, opened in late summer 2013. Its sculptural form was designed by Staab Architects and offered a great deal of inspiration when it comes to creating a new visual identity for the space. During the 2013/14 winter semester, the students started by exploring the identities of various museums, discussing the signage and communication methods these entailed and attempting to gain an understanding of what distinguishes a “good” museum from one that is less so. The students visited various architects and arranged discussions with numerous museum designers. These conversations served as inspiration for the development of a new visual identity for the Ahrenshoop art museum. When it came to developing the design proposals, all kinds of media could be used – anything that could serve as a useful means of communication.
