Museum signage is always slightly banal, and with good reason. The art or exhibitions should always take precedent to the design of the graphics, signage and way finding. That doesn’t mean that the signage should be neglected. The signage plan Hara Design Institute created for the Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum is stunning. Complex in places where it is used to draw guests and passerby into the museum and subtly informational where people need to be guided through the space or provided with information.
