MMCA Museum Identity Extension &
Original Product Development

studio fnt worked on an official merchandising product development project for MMCA (National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea). Museum, Modern, Contemporary, and Art are words that make up the acronym: MMCA, and also are the elements that represent the museum's character. Based on the meaning and visual forms of these words, we developed a graphic unit and application system that expands and enriches MMCA's brand identity.
Then, official merchandise products were chosen and developed by applying the graphic units individually or in combination, and a suitable packaging design was developed for production and distribution. The symmetrical shape that is reminiscent of a wide-open window reflects the broad vision of MMCA toward the audience and the contemporary arts. This project aims to create a souvenir that is meaningful to those who visit the museum, as well as serving as contemporary household items in itself. For this reason, some products such as socks and bags have been created with a high degree of completion through collaboration with brands with expertise in goods production.
