Along with our partners Hüttinger and Dr. Peter Anderson we were awarded (after a world-wide tender) the contract to design the exhibitions for the Communications Museum of Macau. The museum was opened to the public in March 2006

Skizzen zum Entwurf des Ausstellungssystems und der “Grossexponate” stamp collection, sparks etc. Von Hüttinger wurden wir für die weltweite Ausschreibung des Macau Communications Museum mit der Konzeption und Kreativ-Direktion beauftragt. Im Finale setzten wir uns durch und Hüttinger erhielt den Gesamtauftrag. Wir entwickelten, neben den Präsentationsunterlagen für den Wettbewerb auch die gestalterische Konzeption bis hin zum graphischen Erscheinungsbild in der Ausstellung (Farbsystem, Ausstellungsdesign etc.). Ein System von Fahnen kennzeichnet einzelne Bereiche. Einige Wandabwicklungen stammen ebenfalls aus unserer Feder.
