Galaxie Copernicus used for the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza printed materials by the designers at Erretres in Madrid, Spain.
The main graphic element that defines the museum’s identity is the use of horizontal bands in a specific color gradient. By using this resource we have established an orderly system that can be applied indefinitely, and for any publication: it defines the museum's identity. The color range serves to identify each of the languages used in the publications. This selection is reminiscent of the color palette found in many of the paintings in the museum's collection.
The sans-serif used is Galaxie Polaris, Copernicus’s sibling, from Constellation.
