While at Ateliers Jean Nouvel, I worked on the typographic signage and icon design for the Louvre Abu Dhabi museum. Under the the creative direction of Philippe Apeloig and Clovis Vallois, I sketched, designed and mocked up several physical designs for the typographic system in French, English and Arabic.
Designing the signage for a place that doesn't yet exist.
The graphic designers were in constant collaboration with the architects to decide the size and location of the signage, but also to remove walls where needed to increase signage visibility.
Light and shadow.
To accompany the building's unique design, Philippe Apeloig had devised a system using the dome's light patterns. The challenge was to make the icons understandable from every culture.
A truly international system.
After many iterations, the result was an elegant and timeless system for a global audience. I am still very proud to have contributed to this project to this day.
