MADE IN MIDTJYLLAND is the new 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.
HEAVY was tasked to design 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.
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 On the plates we used laser cut graphics to further emphasise the idea of weaving historical content onto the walls.
To extend the graphic concept, we used dashed lines in the iconography and signage as a subtle reference to stitchings.
