The Historical Museum contains Norway’s largest collection of ethnographic and historical artifacts, from the stone age to our time. The museum was opened for the public in 1904, and is one of the few buildings in Oslo drawn in the style of Art Noveau. During the latter years the museum has remodeled much of their interior and exterior, reclaiming the building towards it’s original shape.
The monogram, as well as the building, has a rich and strong design language. Therefore the other elements of the identity were toned down to a minimum which gives the monogram the space to be the main feature. The identity has a large opportunity for balance between sober and experimental, where the use of typography, colors and the placement and size of the monogram provide new rules for each exhibition.
