Art Direction and graphic design of the exhibition “Napoléon Stratège” at the Musée de l'Armée, in Paris. We designed 2 custom title fonts (Iena and Marengo), signage, maps, programs, press kits and drew all the illustrations. In close collaboration with architects Helft & Pinta in charge of scenography. ❃
In spring/summer 2018, the Musée de L’Armée explored the history of Napoleon, whose skills as a "military genius" are universally recognized.
Design of Napoleon's tent fabric pattern: pencil on canson. We used military decorations and trimmings as base for this design.
The exhibition sets out to show the strategist at work, explains the issues at stakes and how campaigns progressed, and get to the heart of the action to analyse his most famous battles, defeats as well as victories.
The exhibition goal is to illustrate and explain the way in which he devised, then applied, his strategy. It relies on maps, documents illustrating the master strategists deliberations, and objects — vestiges, symbols, and representations of historical facts — which embody the tangible reality that strategic thinking seeks to control.
