Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum Signage Plan

The design for the entrance signage to the Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum uses architectural louvers like the teeth of a comb. Lined up in two rows, they stand vertically on the ground. When people look at them while walking past, there is a surprising dynamic movement, like a three-dimensional moire effect. While I got the idea for the symbol mark from the louvers, this mark continues to move, actually like a film. The movement, like ripples, works with the sign to create a calm image.
