BMW Welt

A distinctive new delivery centre and showroom was built to extend the already famous BMW complex in the North of Munich. Prominently located by the main ring road and within sight of the Olympiapark, BMW Welt is a place for communication and encounter. The visual communication for the building offers orientation to visitors, employees and also customers collecting their new vehicles. It also supports the image and experience of the BMW brand. All the information signs across the BMW complex were formulated and designed to produce a consistent image, further strengthening the BMW identity. By using just a few elements for design and content, the visual communication was thus harmonised throughout BMW Welt, in the museum, in the production halls and in the high-rise headquarters building.
