The ‘Kongeskibet Dannebrog’ exhibition at Koldinghus is a unique journey into the maritime life of the Danish royal family aboard their iconic royal yacht, Dannebrog.

The task was to capture the visual expression and rich history of the Royal Yacht Dannebrog in a design language that would resonate with both historical enthusiasts and a broader audience.

We designed a visual toolkit based on references from the iconic yacht and the surrounding nature. This provided a dynamic expression on all touchpoints – from exhibition graphics to print and merch.

The design not only enhanced the exhibition’s appeal but also reinforced the timelessness of the the Royal Yacht Dannebrog, inviting visitors to set sail on a historical voyage.

The exhibition gives an impression of life on board for both the Royal Family and the ship’s crew and is set in the four-storey 800-m2 Ruin Hall at Koldinghus.

HEAVY designed a toolkit that enabled a dynamic and adaptable expression to seamlessly infuse every facet of the exhibition.
