Illuminated Manuscripts from French Museums
Visual communication, motion design and graphics of the exhibition.
In context of three simultaneous french exhibitions about illuminated manuscripts in Angers, Lille and Toulouse, and in partnership with l’Institut national d’histoire de l’art (national institut of history of art), the Musée des Beaux-Arts d'Angers had selected the most great manuscripts from Middle-Age to the Renaissance coming from central regions of France (Pays de la Loire and Centre).
Art of illuminated manuscripts consists to illuminate a text with golden and colorful ornaments.
The graphic content from the pieces of the exhibition was so exceptional, that we decided to directly pick many details from a lot of manuscripts to elaborate the identity of the event. Colors was also a strong part of the visual identity. We chose gold and a deep blue direct ink (inspired by color of the Lapis lazuli, blue pigments used for middle-age manuscripts).
Videos inside the exhibition have offered a slowly exploration of illuminated pages in 6 big projections.
