*GRAPHIC DESIGN AND REALISATION
The ship MS Christoph Merian is a 65.5m long passenger ship that traffics on the river Rhein in Basel between Germany and France. By the refit of the at the time 22 year old ship, we designed not only the new interior, but also all graphic elements for the ship. We wanted to keep a neutral base on the ship, but chose to implement photography illustration in the stair cases, as well as changing table, to add a fun detail for the passengers to discover. The illustrations are a combination between city and harbor landscapes, the map of the town and elements of water. They are printed directly on metal plates and covered some walls. It gives to the passengers the feeling of home and to the ship a personal look.
We recommend to create a logo for the ship to brand some details. The logo is now used on the entrance doors, windows, as well as on the custom made ventilation grills.
The signposting we realized with laser cutted letters in wood.
